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.

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


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

That's pretty much it. He's a young rookie with explosive K potential who may struggle at times with command. At least Harvey doesn't pitch in the AL East. I think he'll be useful next year for sure, but I'm expecting him to be inconsistent and slightly overrated. My feelings for Moore after watching 3-4 of his starts this year mirror my feelings for Harvey after seeing him pitch a few times.

If there was an award higher than the Cy Young for pitching, they should just give the one for 2013 to Matt Harvey now.

Is it? Let's recap:
- He IS the Mets ace
- He almost threw a no-hitter today
- His ERA is 0.8 or so, with a 3-0 record

Ok, that's reality.

He has only played against San Diego, Philly (not what they once were) and MN.

He is pretty awesome though. ;-D

The question is going to be how does he do when he doesn't have his stuff and when he faces a really good offense like the Cardinals who work deep into counts and then how he does when he starts to get tired mid season etc. He will eventually be a legit ace, I don't know about this year yet.
