I can't believe my eyes. As a Mets fan, I'm just waiting for the letdown. 98 mph fastball, 91 mph slider, 87 mph changeup, 84 mph curveball... wow. He's hitting spots. He is actually getting squeezed a bit by the umpire (struck out Howard on a ridiculous inside curveball).

Just threw a 99 mph fastball to strikeout the last batter in the sixth. This is just silly. I don't even know who to compare him to. I would say Verlander, but Verlander only had three pitches when he came up.

Woo!!! Woo!!!

I haven't had a signature since the whole Crazy for Zack Greinke thing. Maybe I need to get me a Harvey Hype Train sig.

pssst... Matt Harvey had a good night... 106 pitches, but 5 IP and 10 Ks. Yeah, he walked three and let up a HR and five total hits, but the guy is going to be REALLY good. I know they've shut him down for the year. Guy is a superstar. Get him on your dynasty and deep keeper leagues now before it is too late.

He's going to be the Matt Moore of 2013.

If you mean long term than yeah he could easily be a legit ace. If you mean has he shown ace like stats this year then no not at all.

I thought he had one more start before getting shut down?

He's certainly pitched like an ace this season. 3rd in the majors in K/9 and 12th in ERA amongst starters. In both categories he's ahead of Gio, Hamels, Bumgarner, Zimmermann, and pretty much on par with Verlander. He likely won't repeat what he's done, because it's only 50 innings, but he seems like the real deal. Possibly a value in next year's drafts the same way Brandon Beachy was this year, except he's got more hype because he plays in NY. Let's hope his season doesn't end the way Beachy's did.

Is this comment based on anything other than he'll be a rookie that gets drafted too high?
