What a beauty of a cover and an instant Mets collectible for all you die-hards out there. Get it signed, get it framed, I know I will.

MattHharvey has gone from New York sensation to a National sensation in less than a half season worth of starts.

SI.com’s Tom Verducci, calls Harvey:

“The most fascinating young power arm in baseball.”

“In an era dominated by pitchers, Matt Harvey has the ferocity of stuff and of will to rise above all of them,” writes Verducci who says Harvey has been groomed to become a great power pitcher with disciplined mechanics by his father, Ed, who coached Matt in high school in Connecticut.

On Sunday, Harvey told Steve Serby of the New York Post that his goal is not just to be the best, but to be a role model for kids.

“I love the little boy that’s in the stands and wants to be like you. I was that boy. I want to be a role model for those kids. I don’t want to be mediocre. I want to be one of the best and somebody that a lot of people look up to.”

It’s been a fascinating start for the young power-armed righty and every time he takes the mound you feel as though something special is going to happen. He is special.
