Mets pitcher Matt Harvey was a recent guest on Watch What Happens, and he managed to stop thinking about Qualcomm long enough to play a game of Never Have I Ever with Connie Chung and host Andy Cohen.
Sporadic baseball analyst Curt Schilling tuned in to Game 5 of the World Series last night, and he was really in favor of keeping Mets starter Matt Harvey in for the whole game, until he wasn’t. The progression of tweets is a fun ride.
It was a Mets season that began with, and briefly threatened to founder upon, questions of how many innings Matt Harvey would be allowed to throw, and for how many innings he’d be able to be effective. In the end, Harvey threw 216 innings—the most ever for a pitcher coming off of Tommy John surgery—and on the whole he…
The controversy over Matt Harvey’s innings limit turned out to be a lot of nothing: the Mets merely skipped Harvey’s starts and gave him shorter outings, and he’s off the leash for however long this playoff run lasts. But that doesn’t change the fact that Harvey’s already thrown 23 more innings than his previous…
Matt Harvey missed a mandatory workout today. The initial word—what Harvey apparently told the Mets—was that he was stuck in tunnel traffic. OK, it happens, traffic in this city sucks. But then Harvey finally made it to Citi Field and gave a different version of events.
The Mets held a mandatory workout today, but starting pitcher Matt Harvey didn’t show up. Nobody seems to know where he is:
Matt Harvey will pitch for the Mets in an expected playoff run, according to an essay published under the hurler’s name at Player’s Tribune.
It’s as if some higher power looked at the NL East standings, noticed the Mets’ six-game lead on the Nationals, said, “Things can’t possibly be going this perfectly for the goddamn Mets!” and then put CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman on the phone with Scott Boras and Mets GM Sandy Alderson.
My boss Tim Marchman is making me write about the Mets, both because they have the best record in baseball and because people keep emailing about it. I don’t see any real point, however, in the routine “Oh wow, maybe the Mets are going to get far this season!” post, partly because I don’t believe in sweeping baseball…
Let's argue about some stupid shit, because c'mon, that's the most fun thing about baseball. And the Mets will never let us down when it comes to providing the stupid shit.
One of these days, Mike Lupica needs to remember — and that probably means before he hurts his brain again — that his job is to be a star sportswriter, not some sort of needy scold who acts as if he gets the bends when he is out of the spotlight for very long.
Mets pitcher Matt Harvey tweeted out this picture today as a way to mark the six-month anniversary of his Tommy John surgery. It's a silly and harmless picture, but Harvey, or someone within the Mets organization, thought that its existence was offensive enough to warrant Harvey deleting his entire Twitter account.…
Mets phenom Matt Harvey was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show this morning, and he was not the ideal interview subject. Patrick wanted to talk about Harvey's elbow injury and the looming possibility of Tommy John surgery—you know, baseball stuff—but all Harvey wanted to do was be a pitchman for some dumb phone thing…
Matt Harvey found out that he has a partially torn UCL yesterday, so it's safe to say that he was having a pretty shitty day. Good thing his buddy John Buck was there to comfort him.
Jimmy Fallon got Matt Harvey to do some man-on-the-street interviews with one goal: ask New Yorkers their thoughts on Matt Harvey. It goes exactly how you'd expect and it's just good, clean fun. Plus, it's always good to put a few dents in the myth of the Savvy New Yorker.
It's awfully hard for a baseball team to stand unquestionably, soul-crushingly outside of contention in mid-June. But the 2013 Mets, who have failed at most everything, have been up to that task.
Unless you live in the right parts of the country, there's a moment every summer when you realize that your baseball team won't be playing in October. For a downtrodden half of New York, that moment more or less arrived within the last two weeks: the Mets entered last night 1-11 since the all-star break. A fortnight…
