Matt Harvey

  1. 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…

  2. 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,…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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.…

  8. 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…

  9. 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,…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Video: Matt Harvey asks New Yorkers what they think of Matt Harvey

    Jul 15, 2013, 9:11 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Mets right-hander Matt Harvey will start the All-Star Game tomorrow for the National League, but he may have a future in comedy. In a skit for NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” Harvey took to the streets in New York to ask people what they thought about this Matt Harvey character. It was pretty brilliant.…

  16. Clayton Kershaw “hurt” by Bruce Bochy’s comments regarding Matt Harvey starting the All-Star game

    Jul 15, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    clayton kershaw getty

    Media availability for the National League All-Stars is going on at the moment. These things are usually pretty rote “I’m just happy to be here” events. Occasionally, though, someone says something interesting. Clayton Kershaw just did. At his press conference today NL Manager Bruce Bochy said that NL starting pitcher Matt Harvey would have been…

  17. Jim Leyland asserts the supremacy of the pitcher win at the All-Star press conference

    Jul 15, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Apple Citi Field

    I just got back from the All-Star Game press conference in which Jim Leyland and Bruce Bochy announced their starting pitchers and lineups.  As Aaron noted, we get Scherzer vs. Harvey and a couple of lineups with which you could quibble, I suppose, if you wanted to, but what’s the point, really? Go outside and…

  18. American League picks Max Scherzer for All-Star start

    Jul 15, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

    As expected the American League announced that Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer will start the All-Star game tomorrow night, matching up against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey. Scherzer’s winning streak came to an end in his final first-half start, but he’s 13-1 with a 3.19 ERA and 152/31 K/BB ratio in 130 innings. If not for the…

  19. National League chooses Matt Harvey for All-Star start

    Jul 15, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Nothing is official yet, but Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports what everyone has been assuming: Matt Harvey will start the All-Star game for the National League in his home ballpark. Harvey is certainly deserving of the assignment, posting a 2.55 ERA and league-leading 147 strikeouts in a dominant first half at…

  20. Matt Harvey won’t start after the All-Star break

    Jul 12, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets ace Matt Harvey has been battling a blister on his right index finger. We learned on Wednesday that the Mets are skipping the right-hander’s final start before the All-Star break. Now, according to ESPN’s Adam Rubin, the Mets plan to skip his first start after the break as well, a Friday night start against…

  21. Someone actually thinks Matt Harvey posing nude is a legitimate problem

    Jul 10, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey Naked

    Of course it’s Bob Klapisch who, after noting that he is a subscriber to and reader of a magazine that features nude pictures of Matt Harvey this week, argues that it’s a real awful bad thing for Matt Harvey to pose nude in that magazine this week: We’re beginning to learn there’s more to Harvey’s…

  22. Mets will skip Matt Harvey’s final first-half start

    Jul 10, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey has thrown his last pitch of the first half, as the Mets announced that they’ll skip his final first-half turn in the rotation Saturday. Harvey threw a career-high 121 pitches Monday and has been dealing with a blister on his right index finger for several weeks, so this is an easy way for…

  23. Oh, Giancarlo Stanton is nude too

    Jul 9, 2013, 1:36 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2013-07-09 at 1.35.20 PM

    I thought Matt Harvey was the only ballplayer posing nude for that ESPN Body Issue, but Old Gator pointed out to me that Giancarlo Stanton is as well. He’s kinda got an Aquaman thing going here: In other news, we need more day games. If you’re curious how he maintains that bod of his, go…

  24. Matt Harvey is battling blisters

    Jul 9, 2013, 9:42 AM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Mets ace Matt Harvey is battling blisters on his pitching hand. It may cause the Mets to skip his next start, reports the New York Post. This could also impact his availability for the All-Star Game, although which way it cuts is hard to say. He was scheduled to pitch on Sunday, which would have…

  25. Wanna see Matt Harvey naked?

    The pic you’ll see when you click through is probably PG-13 at worst, but if you work someplace especially prudish, you may want to move along to the next post.
