When Matt Harvey Pitches You Better Wear Shades

Isn’t it amazing how we feel as Mets fans after a Matt Harvey start? Have you noticed how the other fan bases around baseball look at us now that we have Matt Harvey? 

Matt Harvey’ performance hides alot of the Mets imperfections, like Ike Davis playing first base like its’ 3:45 AM or Capt Kirk getting bad jump on a fly ball in centerfield or holding our breath on a ground ball to Ruben Tejada, when you’re down about the Mets play at times all you have to say is, Is Matt Harvey a stud or what? It makes it all better.

Harvey was large and in charge again last night at a library quiet Citizen Bank Ball Park as he sliced and diced the Dirty Old Phuck Phaces with a Frisbee like slider and fast ball after fastball. Sure Harvey had a bit of an issue with command but he still was never in any danger in this game, unlike the once great Roy Halladay who turned into an old man in front of our eyes. Ron Darling even went into an old pitchers stick together soliloquy over the demise of Doc Halladay but then realized he was working this game for SNY and not TBS and stopped in mid-sentence to realize his Mets fan audience was enjoying their team stepping on Halladay’s throat.

As you all know I am a fin of Collin Cowgill but when I see him with that flat brim on his cap it drives me up a wall. I hate flat brims on baseball cap with a passion BEND THAT BRIM COLLIN!!!!!!!

I’m not worried about Ike Davis at the plate but I am stunned at how bad a first base he’s been playing. Last few games, he’s been a mess in the field.

I like the blue uni top the Mets wear at home but I’m not a fan of the blue road top. I’m ok with the snow whites but they wear them too damn much. There is nothing better than watching the Mets when they are in their pinnies in fact I’d love them even better without the names on the back. The all blue cap is the best cap in baseball. The new blue and orange caps would be better if the “ny” was all orange. I LOVE, LOVE ,LOVE the Mr. Met cap but then again I have always had a strong affection for Mr.Met.

Last night David Wright went after a pop up in foul territory. A Phuck Phace fan tried to interfere with Wright as he caught the pop up and then had the balls to ask Wright for the baseball. Wright shot this shit head a “Are you fucking me” look that was straight out of Bensonhurst.

Matt Harvey Is No Punter

 

 

 

Maybe all is not gloom and doom with the Mets as we see not only is David Wright ready to hit St. Lonesome but Matt Harvey can’t wait to get to camp as well. Harvey says all the right things in this story about competing this year and not using the coming season as a warm up for 2014. That’s why it would seem in Terry Collins best interest for this team to not only get off to a good start but show more fight than in past years  or Wally Backman will be large and in charge by Memorial Day.

It’s bad enough the Mets have not had a FanFest or Winter Caravan in a while but to add insult to injury, the former New York Giants are bringing their World Series trophy they won last year as the San Francisco Giants, back to their homeland this coming Saturday at Finnerty’s Bar at 2nd Avenue between E 13 St and E 14 St.  When the Giants won the World Series in 2010, Managing General Partner, Peter Magowan   a born and raised New Yorker and NY Giants fan, felt it would be a nice gesture to bring the World Series trophy back to his and his baseball teams hometown. Magowan is not with the club anymore but the tradition lives on.  Is anyone in Flushing paying attention????????

Give the Mets credit though as they have not forgotten that there are still victims of Hurricane Sandy who are still hurting. Tomorrow from 1PM to 2PM Daniel Murphy will be at the Church of the Nazarene 1414 Central Avenue in Far Rockaway to distribute food and supplies along with New York Cares Volunteers to residents still trying to rebuild their homes and their lives since the storm.
