The Detroit Tigers’ Max Scherzer won his first American League Cy Young Award, while the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw easily grabbed his second NL Cy Young in three years as the Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced winners this evening. Scherzer, the AL starter in the All-Star Game, went 21-3, leading the majors in wins and his league in WHIP while striking out a career high 240 batters and helping Detroit to its third […]
Rays outfielder Wil Myers and Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez are this year’s Rookie of the Year winners, as selected by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Initially projected to open the season at Double-A Jacksonville, Fernandez instead found himself on the Opening Day roster due to a couple of injuries. The right-hander seized the moment, and at age 20, made his MLB debut on April 7. Fernandez finished 12-6, and his 2.19 ERA was […]
The St. Louis Cardinals are going to the World Series after a 9-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers to take the best of seven series, four games to two. It will be the Cardinals’ fourth trip to the Fall Classic in the last ten years. Overall, this is the 19th National League Championship for the Cardinals, the most by any franchise in the National League. Carlos Beltran and the Cardinals stunned Clayton Kershaw with a four-run third inning, and […]
I can’t even count how many times broadcasters, commentators or play-by-play announcers have started a sentence with: “The Mets, an organization known for pitching…” Really??? Perhaps it’s time to rethink exactly how knowledgeable the Mets are when it comes to pitching. In one of the first scenes in the classic Field of Dreams, Ray Kinsella is driving a tractor, his daughter Karin at his side. As he regales her with stories of Shoeless Joe Jackson, […]
Update 4:15 PM According to Marc Carig, Mets right-hander Matt Harvey underwent an MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery this morning for an undisclosed reason and WFAN’s Mike Francesa is reporting that Matt Harvey has a partially torn UCL. Sandy Alderson held a press conference and said that Matt Harvey will likely be shutdown for the rest of the season and that Tommy John Surgery has not been ruled out. They will wait 7-10 days for […]
I read a comment this morning in our threads from one reader asking another why he left out Gee in his projected 2014 rotation. In addition to MMO, I spend a lot of time reading comment threads at MetsBlog and on other Mets Forums and I see that a lot. Mostly I see future Mets rotation projections looking a lot like this: Matt Harvey Noah Syndergaard Zack Wheeler Jon Niese Rafael Montero Missing are Dillon […]
Matt Harvey is in the midst of a spectacular season, his first full one in the major leagues. But as he showed on Tuesday night against the Dodgers, even he is susceptible to an occasional hiccup now and then. The Mets’ ace lacked command of his off-speed pitches and the Dodgers made him pay by tagging Harvey for four runs on eight hits over six innings pitched. His ERA took a hit rising from 2.09 […]
As Zack Wheeler wrapped up the 10th start of his young and promising career on Saturday night, I was all set to compare his first ten against Matt Harvey‘s until I saw the incredible job that Brian Joura did over at Mets 360. Rather than churn out 500 words to basically say the same thing, I figure you would all be better served by reading what Brian had to say and let him do all […]
The NL Cy Young race has quite obviously become a two-man race between the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw and our very own Matt Harvey. And although we may all be a tad biased towards Mr. Harvey, it’s important as baseball fans to give Kershaw a fair argument. Here’s a brief breakdown of the two: Clayton Kershaw Kershaw is sporting a sickeningly low 1.91 ERA, and is on pace to finish with the first sub-2 ERA in […]
