Pirates at Reds, Game 1: Preview and Lineups

Pirates at Reds, Game 1: Preview and Lineups

Back to baseball. We’ve seen some decent stuff from Matt Harvey as a member of the Cincinnati Reds so far. In 8.0 IP, he’s not yet walked a batter, with 7 Ks on his ledger in that span. The 3.38 ERA, 3.00 FIP, and 1.00 WHIP all look mighty nice, as do the wins the team has logged in both of his outings. Of course, both of those starts came away from Great American Ball Park in the relatively cavernous confines of Dodger Stadium and AT&T Park, but tonight he’ll get his first start as a Red while in their home bandbox. It’ll also come against the Pittsburgh Pirates, who come in...

New York Mets one of several teams with more strikeouts than hits

The New York Mets are one of several teams this season with more strikeouts than hits. If they want to get better, this needs to change. The New York Mets are part of the problem with baseball’s new trend toward striking out too much. After 39 games, they have more strikeouts than hits.

Mets Morning News for May 18, 2018

Your Friday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets Jerry Blevins introduced the world to newborn son Ellis Layne Blevins, who is dapper as hell. With Zack Wheeler and Jason Vargas struggling, Seth Lugo’s impressive season in the bullpen might force Mickey Callaway to reinsert him into the rotation. After sending Devin Mesoraco to the Mets for him, the Reds apparently are hoping to restore Matt Harvey’s value so he can be traded again. Speaking of trading starters, the Daily News’ John Harper opined that the team should deal Jacob deGrom and/or...

Reds hint that Matt Harvey should still have his bag packed

Some people flip houses. The Reds’ president of baseball operations appears to want to do the same with Matt Harvey, landing him on the cheap, building him up and then flipping him for prospects. “We’re looking at him more opportunistically,’’ Dick Williams told USA Today. “It was a bit of a reclamation project because the...

The Mets’ window is slamming shut right in front of their faces

Has the Mets’ window come and gone? Is it possible the terrific 2015 NL title run and the 2016 one-and-done wild card is it? An elite rotation was supposed to fortify serial success. And Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard have given the Mets a cornerstone, but Matt Harvey is now gone and Zack Wheeler is...

Matt Harvey and the Yankees’ changing free agent philosophy

Matt Harvey and the Yankees’ changing free agent philosophy

Matt Harvey’s fall from grace validates everything Brian Cashman believes. There is something off-putting about the lead picture on this post, isn’t there? Matt Harvey, the Dark Knight, formerly a cornerstone of the Best Rotation In Our Lifetime, trading in his blue and orange for Cincinnati Red. Of course we all know Harvey was dealt from the Mets to the Reds last week, the latest chapter in a sad tale of injury, poor attitude and failed potential. I say a sad tale because that’s really how the whole story makes me feel. Harvey was as good a pitcher as you could find in baseball, a...

Matt Harvey so-so, Reds offense picks him up in 6-3 win over Giants

Matt Harvey so-so, Reds offense picks him up in 6-3 win over Giants

That’s a 5-2 road trip, which is dang nice. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game It’s always fun to see a player beat up on his former team, at least when that player is currently on the Cincinnati Reds and not playing against them. On Wednesday, we got to see Adam Duvall knock around the club that originally drafted and developed him, as the LF went 2 for 4 with a dinger, single, 3 ribbies, and an excellent running catch on defense that directly kept another run off the board. It’s been a rough go of it for Duvall for most of the 2018 season, but he certainly turned in...

How Keith Hernandez quietly tried to help Matt Harvey

Even Matt Harvey’s agent thought he was beyond saving. In an appearance on WFAN’s “Boomer and Gio” Wednesday morning, Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez recalled a conversation with Scott Boras — Harvey’s agent — in which Hernandez expressed concern for Harvey’s behavior and Boras said there was nothing he could do to stop it. “I called...

Mets begin interleague play against the Blue Jays

The Mets welcome back old friend Curtis Granderson and the Blue Jays for a quick two-game interleague matchup. The New York Mets (19-18) head back home after an eventful road trip to Cincinnati and Philadelphia for a quick two-game interleague series with the Toronto Blue Jays (21-20). After trading Matt Harvey to the Reds and gaining a new catcher in Devin Mesoraco, the Mets come home looking a little different as they welcome an old friend back to Citi Field. On Friday night, Jake Arrieta was having his way with the Mets lineup, shutting them out for 7 and 1⁄3 innings. Steven Matz had a...

The Mets should put Yoenis Cespedes on the disabled list

The Mets’ Cuban slugger could benefit from a stint on the DL. There are only three things in life that are certain: death, taxes, and the Mets bungling an injury. Over the years, countless players have played through injuries as members of the team. Matt Harvey couldn’t feel his fingers in 2016, Michael Conforto struggled through a wrist injury that same year, and Noah Syndergaard refused an MRI in 2017 resulting in an injury that basically ended his season. But over the past few seasons, the consistent case of a player playing at less than 100 percent is Yoenis Cespedes. In each of...

Mets: Matt Harvey’s downfall is a warning sign for early MLB extensions

The New York Mets are probably pretty happy right now that they didn’t extend Matt Harvey early on in his career. Will other teams view his downfall as a cautionary tale?
