    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…

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

    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.…

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

    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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

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

    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…

  9. 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…

    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…

    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…

    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.

  13. Evan Longoria, Stephen Strasburg lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    No matter how bloated the All-Star rosters get, it’s never hard to find imperfections. This year, two of the AL’s top 10 performers to date have been left off for no good reason. For some reason, manager Jim Leyland’s squad took three catchers and four second basemen, but just two from third base, which has…

  15. Adam Wainwright will not pitch in the All-Star Game

    Mets right-hander Matt Harvey was already the logical favorite to start for the National League since the All-Star Game will be played at Citi Field in New York this year, but this news pretty much seals it. According to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, the Cardinals have rearranged their rotation so that ace right-hander Adam Wainwright…

  16. Pouliot’s midseason award picks: NL MVP

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Now it’s time for the NL midseason MVP, and this year’s picture to date is just as confusing as last year’s was, in my opinion. Of course, the BBWAA decided on Buster Posey pretty handily last year(27 of 32 first-place votes), but I ultimately picked Yadier Molina from a close group of five players. Here…

    Jul 3, 2013, 6:26 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    The reigning MVP has some heavy-hitting competition this year. Let’s see if he can hold them off. AL OPS leaders: 1.136 – Miguel Cabrera: .368/.458/.678, 26 HR, 85 RBI, 2 SB in 323 AB 1.126 – Chris Davis: .329/.405/.721, 31 HR, 80 RBI, 0 SB in 301 AB 1.102 – David Ortiz: .320/.406/.607, 16 HR,…

    Yesterday, we took a look at what WAR had to say as far as midseason awards winners. Now, I’m making my own choices, starting with the Cy Young Awards. First, let’s get the charts out of the way, here are the top 10 in the AL by ERA and both versions of WAR. ERA 1.…

    Here’s how WAR, both the Baseball-reference and Fangraphs versions, rates the top players as of the midway point of the season. AL MVP (Baseball-Reference) 1. Manny Machado – 4.9 2.

  20. Mets may take it easy with Matt Harvey going forward

    Jun 29, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo and Chris Iseman report that Mets manager Terry Collins has spoken with GM Sandy Alderson about ace starter Matt Harvey‘s workload, discussing the possibility of taking it easy with the right-hander over the final three months. The article notes that Harvey is on pace to throw 249 innings, well above the combined…

  21. John Lackey ties career high with 12 strikeouts in win

    John Lackey

    Turning in yet another impressive performance, John Lackey matched his career high with 12 strikeouts while pitching seven innings of two-run ball in the Red Sox’s 5-3 win over the Rockies on Wednesday. It was the third straight start in which Lackey has pitched seven innings and given up two runs. He’s turned in quality…

  22. Matt Harvey to appear nude in ESPN the Magazine

    Jun 25, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    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

    ESPN the Magazine’s answer to the SI Swimsuit issue is its annual “Body Issue.”  Which is at least more honest than the Swimsuit Issue is in its intentions of giving you nude pictures of athletes. It’s not pretending to be something it isn’t. Here’s Jose Bautista from it last year. True to life but for…

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Freddy Garcia pitched well in his first month with the Orioles, starting six games with a 3.57 ERA, but the soft-tossing 36-year-old coughed up 20 runs in 17.2 innings this month and today Baltimore designated him for assignment. Garcia told Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com that he has no plans to retire and it wouldn’t be…

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: Matt Harvey blanks the Phillies on two hits for six innings and David Wright went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a triple and a homer. I know the Mets have problems, but man, when it goes right for them it’s really pretty. Something about the purity of an ace and…

    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

    Fun story from Jeff Passan at Yahoo!. In the course of his Matt Harvey/Zack Wheeler feature he passes along a tale from last year when Matt Harvey was a rookie and Jon Rauch was a reliever for the Mets. It seems that Harvey was trying to take a nap in the clubhouse and Rauch tried…
