SLACKISH REACTION: Once again Matt Harvey was the victim of poor run support as the Mets were unable to score 7 runs for him. His career record falls to 34-37.
The Next Seaver says “I’m a starting pitcher,” Harvey said. “I’ve always been a starting pitcher. That’s my mindset.” (via ESPN)
Eiland…… “The game starts in the first inning, not the fourth.”(Via NY Post)
It’s all a one topic town this morning.
Our late edition @NYDNSports back page: Defiant Matt Harvey insists several times he’s “a starting pitcher” after another poor outing as Mets fall to Braves, but Mickey Callaway won’t commit to the former Dark Knight making his next start. — https://t.co/Mb7VNB0mju pic.twitter.com/MULtO0xCst

A few stray thoughts – now that everyone is down on Reyes and Harvey can you guys go back and stop calling me a dodo for being down on Reyes and Harvey all these years? Next Seaver please.
Looking ahead, I suspect the Mets will find a blister or other non-pitching injury and park Matt in PSL to work this out. He doesn’t want to go to the bullpen, and honestly think about a depressed Matt Harvey in LAS VEGAS of all cities and all the bad things Las Vegas has to offer. Plus it’s not a pitcher’s paradise so I don’t think it’s the best place to find your stuff. Plus LAS VEGAS if you know what I mean.
Should be a fun day in Queens as the Pile On crowd piles on. At least here at MPHQ I’ve been on this train for years.
34-37. Next Seaver. Please.
