    I have been a Mets fan for decades. I have seen , in person, Seaver, Kooz,Ryan, Matlack, Gooden, Sid, Darling, Santana pitch some incredible games. I saw Seaver pitch a one hitter. I saw Niese only let one person reach base. I saw Gooden fan 16.

    Tonight's games was the best game I ever saw a Met pitch in person. In person, Harvey looks more intimidating than on TV.

    And while the runner was clearly safe at first, I will have to look at replays to see if the SS could have played it better.

    I don't care what the 'revised rulebook' says about no hitters and perfect games. IF this was a 10 inning perfect game, I would always say it was even if Harvey did not pitch the 10th. Heck, we all know Santana gave up a 'double' to Beltran last year.

    Until the Mets get a real team behind him, Harvey may want to research how Steve Carlton won 27 games on a team that lost 103 times.

      Tejada did all he could with that - no issues there.

      What Harvey really needs is amnesia so he keeps forgetting he is a Met.

          Double--what double?...why, whatever do you mean...?

          But Harvey certainly looks like he could throw the Mets' 2nd* no-hitter someday...he's already toyed with it twice now, so young, so early on...

          Time to start trading for some bats to support him, I say (and if Ike doesn't start tearing it up soon--and he's going to have to hit like Gehrig for a while to get his batting average up--then as much a I like him and will always remember the long bomb he hit for a HR at Dodger Stadium when I went to see a game there last year...we sadly might need a new 1B as well...I really, REALLY like Ike, but he's just not hitting, and Harvey needs offense--the whole staff needs offense! That was a terrible implosion of an inning by Niese the other day, but if the Mets had a decent offense they at least could've had a chance...Harvey's here, Niese is a solid #3/4, Gee's here for the back-end of the rotation and Wheeler and Syndergaard are still in the pipe--time to trade for some offense.)

            So what are you trading for bats? Wheeler is the only thing you have to trade.

              I think you have to explore the trade market for Wheeler now that he's propped his value up again - he's the one chip that could get you a real bat (and I just don't think he's going to make it in NY).

                  From Buster Olney...

                  Hitters are 9 for 102 (.088) against Harvey after starting behind 0-1, lowest avg. against any starting pitcher in '13.

                        Wow! Good job Harvey! Any reason these guys all seem to be current? Was there a cutoff on the list like starting in say 1980 or so? Just wondering. Seems strange that guys like Feller or Score aren't on the list. Maybe they really dropped off after a few starts, I have no idea. Still very impressive for Matt to accomplish this! Keep it up!

                            Didn't Strasburg also start out in his first couple starts against real bad offensive teams too? I think he had the Pirates either first or second and struck out a ton of them. He got touched up in his first start against a team that was either around .500 or better, can't remember now who that was.

                              Yes. Post 79... I almost nailed his next start spot on.

                                Due to the still small sample size I assume they all have their stats dragged down by having to face Harvey. To put it another way the teams at the top have yet to face Harvey so they are feasting on weak pitching.
