Flores with a big home run yesterday as well. We got through Harvey's first start. Now we will see what Wheeler can do against a good Marlin lineup.
Was flipping in and out of the game so I didn't see every pitch but I liked how efficient Harvey was.with his pitches and I like that being seemingly slimmed down it didn't cost him anything on his fastball. I thought he had bulked up too much and got too heavy before

Last night there was lots to be encouraged with insofar as Matt Harvey. If he returns to form, even without throwing 98 MPH, the Mets will have three #1 caliber pitchers at the top of the rotation. Of course keeping these guys healthy is always an issue, but if Matz or Wheeler can log 20 starts with good performance, and Gsellman resembling the guy who helped carry the Mets into the playoffs, this could be a very special season.
.

Couldn't agree more. Heath is everything for this rotation and the Met season. Two years ago the Mets dusted the Cubs in 4 games. Yes Murph was on fire but Noah, Harvey and DeGrom are and will be tough to beat in any series. Need to stay healthy over the ,long haul.

Historically, when Harvey is at his best, no one on the staff is better at conserving pitches. To that extent, he is a Seaver type of talent, who can get through 6 or 7 innings with a very low pitch count and few strikeouts, and then dial it up to ring up strikeouts and seal a deal. This is one guy who doesn't have to fan 8 guys who have a great night.

I hear he has this as a clause in his contract, its allowed. Don't really like him cleaning up anyway, it seems like his mindset changes as opposed to leadoff or elsewhere.



Last year the media complained he didn't knock in many runs, leading off didn't help. Now in the clean up spot should make a difference.

Conforto will probably see starting action on Sunday against a righty. Won't hurt to rest Granderson once in a while.

Yes. I will be at the stadium on Monday.

But, if you want to talk Bombers, I suggest starting a new thread.

Wow! No contact against a pitcher throwing 88 to 91 mph. In fact we struck out 12 times last night against a Miami staff, Walker contributed 4 big K's. I'd like to think it is the weather but hasn't bothered the opposition.
Pitchers who have our number such as, Teheran and Conley continue to hold our offense.
