Matt Harvey made his major league debut one year ago today on July 26, 2012 at Arizona. (Pictured above) Since his debut, he holds the following ranks in the majors: fifth-most strikeouts (227); third-best ERA (2.38); second-best WHIP (0.97); the second-lowest H/9 (6.23) and baserunners/9 (8.94). Harvey has appeared in 30 games (all starts) and has the lowest ERA (2.38) and WHIP (0.97) in franchise history after his first 30 games. His 2.38 ERA is the lowest mark for any pitcher since 1921, […]
That’s the cover of this year’s Mets Media Guide. I was taking a look at it this morning and thought I spotted a curious omission. Before you read any further, take a look and see if you can spot it too… Here is who is featured on the cover starting at the top and going left to right: 1. Tom Seaver 2. R.A. Dickey 3. Jon Matlack 4. Mike Piazza 5. John Stearns 6. Carlos […]
Former-Met Scott Hairston was dealt on Monday to the Washington Nationals after struggling mightily with the Cubs in 2013. While in hot pursuit of free agent outfielder Michael Bourn, Chicago swept Hairston out from under the feet of the Amazin’s front office, forcing Sandy’s “What Outfield?” Mets into the spotlight. Many, myself included, criticized Alderson for allowing the veteran to walk, especially on such an inexpensive deal. However once spring arrived and a new season was […]
Baseball America revealed their top 50 midseason prospects today, as was compiled by J.J. Cooper. Both Noah Syndergaard and Travis d’Arnaud appeared on the list, at numbers 23 and 25, respectively. Of course, both of these minor leaguers were key components to the off-season trade Sandy Alderson made with the Toronto Blue Jays that sent R.A. Dickey north of the border. Each top prospect has a small blurb below there name, and here’s the one on Syndergaard: Improved breaking ball has made […]
Matt Harvey has the lowest ERA (2.25) among pitchers since 1921, whose first 27 major league appearances were all starts. Mike Mussina is second on that list (2.56 ERA). Harvey also has the best WHIP (0.95) of any pitcher since 1921 through his first 27 career starts. Only four other pitchers had a WHIP under 1.00 in their first 27 starts: Dick Hughes (0.96), Vida Blue (0.97), Orel Hershiser (0.97) and Jim Hardin (0.98). Matt Harvey has had nine starts this […]
In perhaps what is my favorite interview of our young prospect to date, David Laurila of FanGraphs profiled Noah Syndergaard after he made his Double-A debut last Sunday. The 6’6” right-hander, who is now gaining notoriety as “Thor”, looked very impressive and is advanced for his age. There are some awesome quotes in the interview that I whole-heartedly recommend that you read, where he discusses his repertoire, mechanical changes, and his feelings about making his […]
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York wrote what I felt was one of the strongest arguments in making the case for Matt Harvey starting the All Star Game for the National League. He first compares Harvey, who he calls the NL’s Justin Verlander, to last season’s NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey: Through 16 starts, Harvey is 7-1 with a 2.05 ERA, 121 strikeouts, a 0.882 WHIP, 4 homers allowed and a .188 opponent batting […]
Baseball Prospectus just unveiled their 2013 mid-season Top 50 Prospect Rankings. For the Mets, right-hander Noah Syndergaard checked in at No. 23, while catcher Travis d’Arnaud was ranked at No. 28. Both players of course, were acquired before the season from Toronto in the R.A. Dickey deal. Syndergaard, recently made a sparkling debut for Double-A Binghamton on Sunday after his promotion from Advanced-A St. Lucie where he was 3-3 with a 3.11 ERA in 12 starts. The […]
Righthander Noah Syndergaard, second baseman T.J. Rivera and outfielder Dustin Lawley have been selected to represent the St. Lucie Mets for the Florida State League All-Star Game to be played on June 15 game at Dunedin. TC Palm writes: Syndergaard, 20, is 2-3 in 11 starts with a 2.81 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 57 2/3 innings. He was acquired by the Mets in the offseason in a trade involving Cy Young Award winner R.A. […]
