Matt Harvey

  1. Jon Niese hammered for eight runs as ERA rises to 5.93

    When Jon Niese was awarded his first Opening Day assignment this year, the hope was that he would help lead the Mets’ rotation with Johan Santana sidelined and R.A. Dickey in Toronto. However, while Matt Harvey has quickly emerged as that No. 1 guy, Niese hasn’t looked anything close to the same pitcher. Niese’s early…

  2. Hisashi Iwakuma continues to quietly dominate

    It’s tough to get much attention when AL ERA leader Felix Hernandez is your teammate, but Hisashi Iwakuma is quietly emerging as a formidable sidekick at the top of the Mariners’ rotation. Iwakuma gave up two runs over seven innings last night in a 6-3 win over the Athletics. The 32-year-old struck out nine and…

  3. The awesomeness of Miller and Harvey

    May 11, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Last year, of course, we were lucky enough to get two of the most precocious young players in baseball history — Mike Trout put up a historic season at age 20, Bryce Harper put up a superb one at age 19. It was the greatest young duo to hit baseball since 1928 — when Jimmie…

  4. Harold Reynolds takes on Matt Harvey’s lack of a win on Tuesday night on “MLB Now”

    May 9, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Harold Reynolds

    Matt Harvey didn’t get the win on Tuesday. Shameful, really. I mean, yes, it was nice to see nine nearly-perfect innings, but no win, meh. Just lacking tWtW. The folks at “MLB Now” used one of my tweets to ask Harold Reynolds about that yesterday.  And his ability to disconnect himself from his past statements…

  5. Matt Harvey gets the overlaid gif treatment. And it’s spectacular

    May 8, 2013, 4:30 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

    Matt Harvey‘s outing last night was otherworldy dominant. To see exactly why, you have to go check out Drew Sheppard’s latest at FanGraphs. Drew is the guy who made that Yu Darvish gif mashup that went viral, but this one is both instructive and cool. There are multiple gifs on the post showing strikeout sequences…

    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

    My snark at Matt Harvey‘s alleged lack of The Will to Win continued on to Twitter this morning, where I decided to be a pest to the MLB Network people: .@mlbnetwork if no one asks Harold today if Matt Harvey’s game last night was lacking because of no W, you guys are committing malpractice. —…

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

    Mets 1, White Sox 0: For as good a pitcher as Matt Harvey is, something is clearly wrong with him given that he did not get the win in this game. The object of the game is to win it, Matt. You clearly lack The Will to Win, as I’m sure Hawk Harrelson mentioned during…

  8. Zack Wheeler pitches well again

    May 6, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Zack Wheeler

    I was on WIP in Philly this morning and Angelo asked me if I had a choice of being given the Phillies GM job or the Mets GM job, which one would I take. It didn’t take me long to answer that: the Mets. Easy. And not just because being the Mets GM means you…

  11. Terry Collins is officially on the hot seat

    May 1, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Terry Collins

    Terry Collins is not under contract for 2014. That alone makes his job security a tenuous proposition at best. But Bob Klapisch notes that he’s on even shakier ground than that: Without a commitment from ownership, Collins looks like a short-timer on a bad team, a latter-day George Bamberger. The current six-game losing streak, including…

    My weekend: a quickie trip to Detroit where I saw my Braves look pathetic on Saturday afternoon. But bad baseball is better than good nothin’, so it was a fine weekend.  Here’s what else went down: This has nothing to do with baseball, but holy crap this is a detailed article about the Magnum T.A.-Tully…

    New York Mets Jordany Valdespin celebrates after hitting grand-slam walk-off home run to beat Los Angeles Dodgers in MLB game in New York

    Jordany Valdespin‘s first homer of 2013 was memorable; he delivered a grand slam off Josh Wall in the bottom of the 10th to give the Mets a 7-3 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday. It was the second walkoff slam of the year, with Baltimore’s Matt Wieters collecting the other. Valdespin, who earlier entered the…

    Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that right-hander Shaun Marcum has been cleared to make his Mets debut on Saturday against the Phillies. Marcum was placed on the disabled list at the end of spring training because of biceps tendinitis and then developed neck inflammation while rehabbing his arm. But he has looked sharp in recent…

  16. Pirates end Paul Maholm’s scoreless inning streak

    Apr 20, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Paul Maholm entered tonight’s start against the Pirates with a 0.00 ERA and 20.1 consecutive scoreless innings over three starts. The lefty took his streak into the sixth inning until it was finally snapped on an Andrew McCutchen RBI double. Gaby Sanchez followed it up with a two-run home run to give the Pirates a…

  17. Matt Harvey is real, and he’s spectacular

    Apr 19, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals  v New York Mets

    Matt Harvey outdueled wunderkind Stephen Strasburg in Queens tonight, holding the Nationals to one run over seven innings. The 24-year-old right-hander struck out seven in as many innings. Most impressively, he worked his way out of a bases loaded, no out jam in the seventh, even after a brutal throwing error by Daniel Murphy put…

  18. What to watch tonight: Stephen Strasburg vs. Matt Harvey

    Apr 19, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    kid watching tv

    I’ve been looking forward to tonight’s Nationals-Mets game all week for the Stephen Strasburg-Matt Harvey matchup. Obviously arguments can be made for other guys, but for my money the 24-year-old Strasburg and the 24-year-old Harvey are the two young pitchers with the most upside in all of baseball. Strasburg has made 48 career starts with…

  19. Roy Halladay’s struggles continue in loss to Mets

    Apr 8, 2013, 10:29 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay Getty

    Roy Halladay was chased from his season debut last Wednesday against the Braves after he gave up five runs over 3 1/3 innings. And things didn’t get any better tonight against the Mets, as he was charged with seven runs in four innings as part of a 7-2 loss. While Halladay mixed in a pair…

    Apr 7, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Jose Fernandez

    A week after the Marlins shocked everyone by announcing his callup, 20-year-old Jose Fernandez allowed one run in five innings and struck out eight Mets in his major league debut Sunday. Fernandez, regarded as one of the game’s top five pitching prospects, was expected to spend the bulk of the season in the minors. In…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Today was supposed to be the first day that I posted ATH later than I used to. Really: I was going to restore life balance with this one. I watched the Braves game last night but rather than stay up another hour and a half or two hours getting most of the recaps done, I…

  22. Matt Harvey overwhelms Padres in season debut

    Apr 3, 2013, 10:02 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    The Mets didn’t want to put extra pressure on Matt Harvey by making him their Opening Day starter this year, but let’s face facts: he’s the club’s best hope for having an ace this year. He showed why on Wednesday night when he limited the Padres to one hit and struck out 10 over seven…

    UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal reports that Marcum’s deal with the Mets is for $4 million plus incentives.  Obviously Marcum represents an injury risk, but that seems like a good deal.
