what other young pitcher match up would you like to see then?  you got to think ahead like when you bet horses

Its game 12 or so of a season where the Mets will win 75 games if they are lucky. Like I said , arent we getting a bit ahead of ourselves with Matt Harvey. He looks outrageous but...................................

Matt Harvey has much better mechanics than Prior had, Strasburg too for that matter.  He throws that hard and it looks effortless.  He really should hold up.

Keith Hernandez, who is a very smart baseball man said the exact same thing..."smooth effortless mechanics". Its going to be fun watching these young pitchers in 2014 as well. Maybe its just me, but its much more fun when the team you root for wins with home grown players. trophy trophy

I had more fun watching the first half of last year than I've had watching any Mets team since 2007.  They busted ass and were entertaining even if they weren't good.  This team is starting to go that way too.

It may be de ja vu (aka, 2012) all over again.  Did you look at the entire 2013 schedule?  The Mets have a plethora of sub-500 teams to play before the All-Star break.  Back-to-back series against the tougher teams doesn't kick in until August.

it's ok, it's not about this year anyway.  It's about the future.  It's ok to get a taste of winning.  The late season struggle will just make them hungrier next year when they have a little more talent.

What is so great about the teams mindset is that they play day to day and game to game. You can see they think they can win each day they play. You never know, good things can happen. If they are doing well by all star break and can add a pitcher...and bullpen depth...
What scares me in baseball is what they call the dog days in August.
I badly want them to win, not so much because I am a fan, but because I think Terry Collins deserves the chance to manage now that things are turning around and looking up. I think he is a super manager trophy

I just read that the owner of the Rockies is out there with the grounds crew shoveling the 8-inches of snow off the field.  They are trying to squeeze in at least one game today before the next round of snow begins.

One site says post time is set for 4:30 EDT, while SNY says they will kick off around 5.

Right hander Collin McHugh pitched around trouble in the 1st and 2nd innings, surrendering just one unearned run in the opening frame on his way to a no-decision. The final line for McHugh: 5.2IP 1R 0ER 3K 3BB 102 pitches 64 strikes, lowering his era to 0.50 in three starts.

the Mets always have "great" players in the minors and publicize them often

doesn't seem to pan out too often in my view

this is not a very good team but can look like it against San Diego, Houston and Miami

Brandon Nimmo continues to flatten baseballs. He had another three hits in Tuesday night’s game, and has brought his average up to a ridiculous .447. Many people were watching to see how Nimmo would respond in 2013, and he seems to be silencing the critics. There was going to be an adjustment period for Nimmo at the professional level. High school players might see one good pitcher a week at that level, then they come to professional baseball and are facing pitchers everyday that may have been better than any pitcher they ever faced in high school. It’s safe to say Nimmo has made the necessary adjustment to professional baseball, and continues making the doubters look foolish.
It’s time to promote Kevin Plawecki. Low-A pitching is just not challenging enough for him. He’s a polished college hitter and should have started the season at St. Lucie. Everyday he goes and smacks another double or home run, I scratch my head and wonder why he is playing for Savannah.
Another solid outing for Collin McHugh last night. The righty now has started three games and has a ridiculous 0.50 ERA. He also has fifteen strikeouts in fifteen innings this year to only four walks. What are the Mets waiting for to give this guy a shot at the back end of the rotation?

Harry, love ya to death, as you're a top notch guy, but I also stand by my statement, it's not about this year.  The minor league system was bare, and then all the sudden they seem stockpiled at pitcher.  Reese Havens is a bust.  2014-15 should be fun again

Familia was decent in Binghamton last year even though he had limited chances.

Alex,

Love you too but I don't know about the future. I used to be a season ticket holder, 8 feet past 1st base, 3rd and 4th row off the field, great seats, big price increases every year until the new stadium, finally quit, wasn't going to pay big bucks for the whole season.   

I just don't believe they are very good this year and let's see if they can have these prospects advance.
