Chansky’s Notebook: Mets Stick It To Dark Knight

So Matt Harvey winds up with the Cincinnati Reds, perhaps the worst team in both leagues with a 9-27 record after their third win in the last 10 games against, you guessed it, the Mets! The small Red Machine’s starting rotation needs plenty of help and Harvey will get ample opportunity to fix what is broken. Harvey’s fall is like a black comedy for the Dark Knight. (Chapelboro.com)

Matt Harvey Traded to Cincinnati Reds

Matt Harvey is getting another chance, this time with a historically bad team in a city that will have far fewer late-night temptations than the Big Apple. The Cincinnati Reds acquired the former New York ace for catcher Devin Mesoraco on Tuesday, shortly before Cincinnati pulled away to a 7-2 victory over the Mets at Great American Ball Park.

Kyle Seager's brilliant play at third base saved James Paxton's no-hitter

Every no-hitter comes with that play, the one that saves a no-hitter and will tie the fielder to the pitcher’s accomplishment. In the case of James Paxton’s entrance into history, it was Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager who made that play. “You try to make the play all the time, but, man, that ball gets by you and it’s going to be hard to sleep tonight,” Seager said.

North Carolina Leads College Baseball Into The Analytics Age

North Carolina assistant baseball coach Robert Woodard used to write down every move and position, and every night he’d relive them all. What could I have done differently? How should I have responded here? Woodard wasn’t a math prodigy. He never expected to outsmart or outthink the kids on the other end of the chessboard. But he knew he could outwork them.

This Week with Mike Fox: Depth Charge

UNC Baseball Coach Mike Fox: "I vaguely remember my exam days, they are all pretty much stressed out. They have all been doing their academic work.

My two assistants saw five of our 2018 commitments to follow up on them and then we got back to limited practices over the weekend Saturday and Sunday." (Inside Carolina)

The Dark Knight Fades to Black

The greatest moment in recent Mets history is also the worst. It wasn’t on the field, it happened in the dugout. In Game 5 of the 2015 World Series, with the Mets facing a 3–1 series deficit, Matt Harvey, capping a post–Tommy John surgery comeback season in which he finished 13–8 with a 2.71 ERA, dragged the Mets through eight innings of shutout baseball.

The highs and lows of Matt Harvey’s Mets career

After high highs (that is not supposed to be a double meaning unless our lawyers aren’t reading this and then in that case it definitely is) and even lower lows, Matt Harvey is being designated for assignment by the Mets. He reportedly was asked to accept a minor league assignment and as he’s out of options the Mets only had one choice, so Harvey’s Mets career is over. (SB Nation)
