    Aug 27, 2013, 2:11 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Washington Nationals

    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Pirates have acquired outfielder Marlon Byrd and catcher John Buck from the Mets. Earlier in the day it was reported that the two had been placed on waivers and claimed by an unknown team. Now we know. In return the Mets are getting minor leaguer Dilson Herrera and…

  2. Bob Klapisch blames the Mets and posing nude for Matt Harvey’s injury

    Matt Harvey Naked

    It’s Bob Klapisch who, after spending a bit of time yesterday afternoon on Twitter playing armchair orthopedic surgeon, decided that the Mets are to blame for not seeing the alleged warning signs leading to Matt Harvey‘s diagnosis: There are a million questions trailing in his wake, starting with the Mets’ passive response to the lingering forearm…

  3. John Buck comforting Matt Harvey is kinda sweet

    Matt Harvey is gonna come back after Tommy John surgery and he’s going to be good and he’s going to make millions because he’s super talented and because Tommy John surgery is far closer to the routine these days than it used to be. That said, his torn UCL diagnosis is sad and Harvey is understandably…

  4. Jeremy Hefner to undergo Tommy John surgery

    While this won’t have the wide-ranging ramifications of Matt Harvey‘s partially-torn ulnar collateral ligament, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that Jeremy Hefner will undergo Tommy John surgery. Hefner was diagnosed with a partially-torn medial collateral ligament in his elbow earlier this month. Tommy John surgery was discussed as a possibility at…

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox with a bloody nose during the first inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Matt Harvey being shut down with a partially-torn UCL is awful, awful news. I know now the official line is that they will wait and see how it goes, think about rehab over surgery and all of that, but really: when was the last time a pitcher successfully rehabbed a torn-UCL? It seems like they…

  6. Matt Harvey has a torn elbow ligament

    Aug 26, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    UPDATE: Oh no. Mike Francesa of WFAN radio in New York reports that Harvey has a torn UCL in his elbow, which is the injury that requires Tommy John surgery and a 12-month recovery timetable. UPDATE #2: Adam Rubin of ESPN New York confirms that Harvey has been diagnosed with a partially torn UCL. No…

  7. Mets ponder ways to limit Matt Harvey’s workload

    Aug 25, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey has already logged 178.1 innings of work this season and he is on track to make another seven starts on his current schedule. The Mets, however, have made it abundantly clear throughout this season that they will attempt to limit his workload as the end of the season draws near. Josh Vitale of…

  8. Max Scherzer outduels Matt Harvey in 3-0 game

    Aug 24, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    It was the best pitching matchup of the season that a big chunk of the U.S. was unable to watch. Max Scherzer struck out 11 over six innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout as the Tigers beat the Mets 3-0 on Saturday. Matt Harvey took the loss after giving up two runs…

  9. Daisuke Matsuzaka to make Mets debut Friday against Tigers

    Aug 22, 2013, 10:31 PM EDT

    Daisuke Matsuzaka Reuters

    The Mets signed right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka earlier today and they aren’t wasting any time putting him to work, as the team has announced that he’ll make his first start tomorrow night against the Tigers at Citi Field. Matsuzaka, who turns 33 next month, was granted his release by the Indians earlier this week after he…

    Indians' Daisuke Matsuzaka pitches three innings against the Giants during their MLB Cactus League spring training baseball game in Scottsdale

    The Mets play a lot of fast games thanks to good pitching. Now they’re going to try to do the opposite of that: Source confirms that #Mets are finalizing agreement with Dice-K and will bring him straight to the majors.

  11. Dodgers win 10th game in a row, have now won 42 of last 50 games

    Aug 17, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Philadelphia Phillies

    Behind eight dominant innings from starter Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers easily defeated the downtrodden Phillies 5-0 to win their tenth consecutive game. It is also their 42nd win in their last 50 games, an absurd .840 winning percentage. Kershaw held the Phillies scoreless on three hits and a walk while striking out eight. Kershaw even…

  12. New York needs A-Rod this summer

    Aug 14, 2013, 11:32 AM EDT

    The crowd takes photos as New York Yankees' Rodriguez warms up to bat for first time this season as he faces Detroit Tigers in MLB American League game in New York

    I’m not sure why they let Andy Martino write for the Daily News. He seems to actually enjoy baseball and is able to take a step back and realize that, for whatever else it means, baseball is entertainment. His colleagues are all comparing Alex Rodriguez to mass murders and are blaming him for ruining absolutely…

  13. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 14, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Diamondbacks 4, Orioles 3: Paul Goldschmidt homered to tie it in the ninth, homered to win it in the 11th. It’s perhaps too late for this, but memo to Buck Showalter: maybe don’t pitch to Paul Goldschmidt. Two walkoff wins in a row for the Dbacks. Their ninth walkoff win of the year. Yankees 14,…

  14. Mets expected to shut down Matt Harvey at 200 innings

    Aug 13, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey‘s case for the Cy Young award will likely take a hit late in the season, as Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that the Mets plan to shut down the 24-year-old right-hander once he reaches 200 innings. There’s no official plan, but according to DiComo “the working assumption is that they will not allow…

  15. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 8, 2013, 5:17 AM EDT

    Alejandro De Aza,

    All kinds of comebacks on Wednesday. Let’s call it “Comeback Wednesday!” — wait, what? Really? OK, sorry folks. The people in the marketing department said that’s impossibly lame. They’re working on something centering around the idea of “Extreme Comebacks” but they want to focus group it first. We’ll let you know. White Sox 6, Yankees…

  16. Matt Harvey throws first career shutout

    Aug 7, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    harvey getty

    Matt Harvey‘s dominance dates back to the 2012 season, but he had never pitched a shutout or even a complete game before he took the mound to face the Rockies on Wednesday evening at Citi Field. Harvey carved up a good Colorado lineup for nine scoreless innings, yielding just four hits on 106 pitches as…

  17. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 2, 2013, 6:18 AM EDT

    Jonathan Papelbon

    Giants 2, Phillies 1: A few days ago Jonathan Papelbon watched his team lose another game and said “I definitely didn’t come here for this.” Well, they didn’t show up at the ballpark yesterday expecting Papelbon to give up four singles and blow the lead. Again. Cole Hamels‘ eight shutout innings were for naught and…

  18. The Mets are giving Matt Harvey ten more starts

    Jul 27, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    With the addition of Jenrry Mejia to the rotation, Mets starter Matt Harvey has about ten starts left according to manager Terry Collins (via Jorge Castillo). We heard rumors about the shutdown throughout the season and now we have a countdown. Harvey has logged 145 innings over 21 starts thus far, posting a 2.11 ERA.…

  19. Mets will keep Jenrry Mejia around, shift to six-man rotation

    Jul 26, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v New York Mets

    Jenrry Mejia was fantastic in his season debut for the Mets today, throwing seven shutout innings against the Nationals, and afterward manager Terry Collins announced that the 23-year-old right-hander will remain in what is now a six-man rotation. In upping the rotation from five to six starters the Mets are making room for Mejia to…

  20. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 22, 2013, 5:12 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Phillies 0: It’s getting close to the time for us to break out all of that “we are all witnesses” kind of hyperbole for Matt Harvey. Not that it’s really hyperbole. He’s simply toying with hitters at this point, throwing ungodly stuff in just about every count. Seven innings, three hits, ten strikeouts,…

  21. The press does not cheer

    Jul 19, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Not Amused

    I was at the press conference at Citi Field on Monday when Matt Harvey and Max Scherzer were introduced as the All-Star starters. The conference was hosted by Brian Kenny. It took place in an area of Citi Field which, at the time, was restricted to press and baseball officials, so there were no fans…

  22. And the Matt Harvey backlash has begun

    Jul 18, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    All Star Game Baseball

    Remember yesterday’s Men’s Journal profile of Matt Harvey that contained some good tidbits about the Mets right-hander’s Derek Jeter-modeled dating life and fun-sounding family? Well, apparently Harvey is experiencing a bit of a backlash to all the details he shared, because he just posted this on Twitter: It really sucks how words get used and…

  23. Matt Harvey models his dating after Derek Jeter and his family motto is “dirty martinis and music”

    Jul 17, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    All Star Game Baseball

    I just read David Amsden’s profile of Mets ace Matt Harvey in the August issue of Men’s Journal magazine and wanted to pass along a couple of particularly amusing excerpts (the whole article is definitely worth reading). First, here’s Harvey on participating in the New York nightlife and wanting to be like Derek Jeter: “That…

  24. The American League wins the 2013 All-Star Game 3-0

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

  25. Robinson Cano leaves All-Star Game after taking a Matt Harvey fastball off his right leg

    Jul 16, 2013, 8:35 PM EDT

    It’s the last thing anyone wants in an All-Star Game. Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano was lifted in the top of the first inning tonight at Citi Field after taking a Matt Harvey fastball — clocked at 96 mph — off the inside of his right knee. It sounded bad and looked bad, but Cano…
