Fresh start for Mets' Matt Harvey

Matt Harvey is standing in the back of a raucous visitor’s clubhouse, the symphony of celebration exploding around him. His entire 6-foot-4 frame is soaked in some pungent combination of champagne and beer, a condition that leaves him describing how it all feels in one simple word: “cold.” He is cold, but his baseball heart has never been so warm.

The Mets' success leaves Matt Harvey with no choice: The future is now

Matt Harvey’s personal surgeon tells him he’s putting himself in danger with every pitch he throws for the New York Mets, but Harvey is told not to listen.

Matt Harvey: ‘I’ll be last person’ to ever bring up innings limits again

Don’t expect any conversation of innings limits or pitch counts for Matt Harvey in the NLCS, especially from Harvey, who will be on the mound for Game 1 against the Cubs on Saturday night at Citi Field. “I think everybody kind of had enough talk and discussion about that whole ordeal,” Harvey said Friday. “I’ll be the last person to ever bring that one up again.” (New York Post)

Matt Harvey set for Game 1 of NLCS with shackles off completely

Matt Harvey tried to talk Terry Collins into using him in short relief if necessary in the decisive Division Series contest. The Mets manager instead was saving him to pitch in case Game 5 went to extra innings, and now he is the NLCS Game 1 starter. Remember when he had innings limits? (New York Post)

What to do with Adam Warren?

Continuing our look at Yankees who have uncertain roles heading into next season, we'll next consider a cost-controlled pitcher who's done a little of everything in his career. Adam Warren has been a starter, he's been a long reliever, he's been a late-inning setup man -- and it seems that he's rarely known which role the Yankees prefer from month to month. (Lower Hudson Journal News)

After change of plans, Matt Harvey can pitch for Mets in NLDS Game 5

Upon further notice, the Mets will have Matt Harvey available after all out of the bullpen in Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

Collins had originally said Tuesday that Harvey would not be available for them. (NJ.com)

For the second day in a row the international tiebreaker was required, though Wednesday's deadlock came at 11-11 instead of 0-0. Brandon Riley and Brendan Illies homered for the Blue squad while Tyler Lynn went deep for Navy. (GoHeels.com)

Jacob deGrom is starting for the Mets in Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday evening in Los Angeles and Noah Syndergaard will be available to piggyback deGrom if necessary. There might be another lethal right-hander stationed at the ready in the visitors bullpen at Dodger Stadium. Mets manager Terry Collins said at his press conference Wednesday in Los Angeles that Matt Harvey told him he “wants to be available too” in Thursday’s loser-goes-home tilt. (NBC Sports)

UNC's Navy Team Takes Fall World Series Game One In Extra Innings

Bukauskas and Jason Morgan dominated from the mound. Bukauskas struck out 10 batters in 5.2 innings while Morgan allowed just two hits in 6.0 shutout frames. (GoHeels.com)

Matt Harvey trades brilliance for grit in odd, glorious Harvey Day

Matt Harvey sounded perfectly fine with how National League Division Series Game 3 went down. For sure, the fans at Citi Field’s postseason debut were far better than fine. Maybe this set the tone for the Harvey Days that remain in 2015. In the Mets’ 13-7 bludgeoning of the Dodgers, which put them up by a 2-1 margin in games, Harvey’s first career playoff start stood out more for the right-hander’s grit than for his dominance. (New York Post)

Matt Harvey remains huge source of community pride in Connecticut hometown

Two years ago, Matt Harvey was the National League’s starting pitcher in the All-Star Game at his home ballpark of CitiField. He got thunderous applause from the sellout crowd, pitched well enough, even cut a humorous bit for the Jimmy Fallon Show earlier in the week. That was the toast-of-the-town, Dark-Knight-of-Gotham Matt Harvey. But it was his performance at a local field this past All-Star break that may say more about who Matt Harvey truly is. (New Haven Register)

Matt Harvey knows best way for Mets to get revenge

It has become something of a civic parlor game, scouring Matt Harvey quotes for intrigue and hidden meanings. This time, though, he gets it right. This time, he gets it absolutely right. “There were a lot of upset feelings,” Harvey said Sunday afternoon, referring to Chase Utley’s slide, and Ruben Tejada’s broken leg, and the brushfire that has overtaken this National League Division Series between the Mets and the Dodgers, and the response inside the New York clubhouse. (New York Post)

New York Yankees 2015 Exit Interview: Adam Warren

Q. Your role changed multiple times this year. How were you able to make the adjustments? Adam Warren: Yeah, this was an interesting year, because I went from starter to reliever to starter and back to reliever at the end. I felt like the first transition from starter to reliever was the hardest, but after that, all of them felt a lot easier because I learned to have two separate routines. (YES Network)

Mets turn to the Dark Knight to settle score with Dodgers, Chase Utley

The Mets have waited forever for this moment — nine long years in the Yankees’ shadow. They finally have greater New York to themselves, and will be looking to prove to the skeptics and non-believers that they’re tough enough not just to have beaten Kershaw in Game 1, but able to rally from a setback like Tejada’s injury in Game 2. That’s where Harvey comes in. He’ll feed off the energy in the stands and, you bet, the anger, too. (Sporting News)

Glaring NLDS spotlight turns to Mets’ one true advantage: Matt Harvey

The real advantage was supposed to be in Game 3, when the Dodgers could not use Kershaw or Greinke and had to go with Brett Anderson — while the Mets have Matt Harvey. So, yes, what an intriguing, delectable thing a baseball season is. After all the noise and uneasiness and debate, Harvey has the spotlight he so loves and all the hero or goat implications that will go with that. (New York Post)
