First of all, yeah, this gives the Mets their 81. And it only took a month.
Matt Harvey's rookie debut was just what the team could have asked for. He pitched a glorious game against the D-Backs, fanning numerous batters and gaining a crucial win. This granted the attention of the rest of the league. If Harvey was this good on his debut, they said, how will he do in the rest of his career? Well, it looks like he'll be a great Mets pitcher for the rest of the season.
And it couldn't come at a better time. His team, once at the top of the division, has sunk to third, without its strong pitchers. The team needs his help, and they need him now.
Will Matt Harvey become a prominent ace for Queens? Only time will tell.
Coming Tomorrow- What's that? You want yet another Dodger? Alright. This one's always been part of a great infield in history, all of which traded to other teams, except him. This changed last week.
