Matt Harvey is no one's hero

Though Matt Harvey may have been dubbed the "Dark Knight of Gotham" many years ago, he's been anything but a savior to NY, or his Mets team. I don't think he's being defiant as much as he's speaking about his desire and current reality.

Harvey got off to a good start this season.

"That last three innings I think I was able to break through that mental block I was feeling every time I went out there", he said. He gave up four earned runs in each of the two outings before that and his record sits at 0-2, with an ERA of 6.00.

Callaway said he thought Harvey would be motivated to prove he's a starting pitcher. He's also been a somewhat seldom-used piece, though, having started in just 14 of the 100 games he's appeared as a fearless. NY is also 11-4 in their last 15 Friday games and 0-4 in Syndergaard's last four Friday starts.

Jeurys Familia blew the save in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Braves, surrendering two runs on three hits over 2/3 of an inning. Given that both teams have some pop in their lineups and Teheran has struggled at SunTrust Park, this one could easily go over the total. "I have to suck it up and go out there and do everything I can to get things back in gear".

"We admire the passion and the pride he has, and that's a big part of what's going to get him back to being a productive guy", Ricco said of Harvey.

Yankees can't silence Jays' bats in 8-5 loss
Justin Smoak is 1 for 4 against Montgomery, while Josh Donaldson is 0 for 2, and Kevin Pillar is 1 for 3. His walk rate of 6.0 per nine innings is almost double the career-high of 3.2 he posted last season.


The Mets have finally had the super-rotation of Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Harvey, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler healthy at the same time this year. Vargas, who hasn't pitched yet this season due to recovering from a hand injury suffered in Spring Training, is expected to make a rehab start on Sunday before rejoining the rotation next weekend. That has sparked speculation about how the Mets will make room for Vargas in the rotation. In between was a solid run in 2015, with 13 wins and a 2.71 ERA over 29 starts (189.1 innings) during the regular season and a 3.04 ERA over four postseason starts as the Mets reached the World Series.

Callaway also said it was "inevitable" that Harvey will start again this season.

An All-Star back in 2013, Harvey simply has not been the same since missing the entire 2014 campaign with a UCL tear.
