Mets phenom took a no hitter into the 7th inning in Atlanta during the first half of their Tuesday double-header vs. the Braves.

Harvey, the lone point of hope for Mets fans this season (outside of standby David Wright) was already drawing comparisons to the pitch-count controversy of Johan Santana’s “No-Han” game last year…when the most Mets thing could happen.

The Mets lost a ball game today.

Even though it was against the best team in baseball, the St. Louis Cardinals, and their best pitcher Adam Wainwright, fans were dejected to witness phenom Matt Harvey’s first loss this year.

Is Chien-Ming Wang Ready For a Return to the Yankees?

wang_576

Coming off of starter David Phelps’ implosion (.1 IP), the Yankees will be looking for more success from the return of a veteran, in Andy Pettitte, on Monday against the Indians.

In fact, Phelps is not the only moving part the Yankees have had in their rotation this year.  Ivan Nova, Vidal Nuno, and the eventually debuting Michael Pineda will all start for the Yankees this year.

Perhaps the next guy who should join that list is one who has had success in the past for the Yankees, Chien-Ming Wang. Continue reading

Matt Harvey Will Definitely Start for the NL in the All-Star Game…Unless One of These Other Guys Do

matt-harvey-mets

He’s on the over of Sports Illustrated.  He has taken New York by storm.  He has drawn comparisons from Tom Seaver to Dwight Gooden to Roger Clemens to Justin Verlander.

He has an ERA of 1.44, 0.73 WHIP, 62 K in 56.1 innings.  He is the Mets pitching phenom, Matt Harvey.

We know he is here to stay – the only question now is, will he start the All-Star Game, taking place at Citifield in July?  He is definitely the favorite, as well as the hometown hero, so it is in the bag, right?  Well, just for kicks, lets throw around a few other names who could be on the mound for that first inning in Flushing, Queens.* Continue reading

Hall of Hearsay: Baseball Writers and the “Guilty Until Impossibly Proven Innocent Principle”

sadbiggio

 

Today, flawed people judged other flawed people.  Mistaken people judged other mistaken people.  The greedy judged the greedy.

Judges generally have nothing at stake other than their reputation, which can easily be forgotten when the next case comes through.  The judged are the ones who have to live with the consequences.

The Baseball Writers of America decided today that swift justice, no matter who got stuck in the crosswind, was acceptable when voting who would not make the Hall of Fame – and that was every player eligible for induction.
