I appreciate Matt Harvey pitching well against the Blue Jays today, offering a glimpse of what could have been had the 2015 World Series not been canceled.
Sadly, we’ll never know what the baseball gods planned for that magical October. Alas…
Matt Harvey pitches today. That’s quite the Fathers Day gift for bettors!
Matt Harvey held the Blue Jays scoreless through 4 innings before he allowed 4 runs in the 5th.
Harvey did hit 97 - the first time he's thrown that hard since 2018.
First Madison Bumgarner, now Adam Wainwright. Who will be the next completely washed SP to dominate the Braves in a Sunday DH? Matt Harvey? Ervin Santana? Bartolo Colon?
Lowest ERA by a #Mets starter in his first 13 starts with the club:
Al Leiter: 1.53
Matt Harvey: 2.21
Jerry Koosman: 2.39
Taijuan Walker: 2.42
BOOM We improve to 5-0 on the day as J-Smooth cashes his 2nd play of the day thanks again to the fade of Matt Harvey.
Blue Jays -1.5 ✅
Plenty more on the board. @JustinPerri8 @SportsLine
Adam Plutko leaves the bases loaded after a walk. Matt Harvey's line: 4 1/3 innings, 9 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts, WP. 84/55. Hasn't completed the 5th inning in his last 9 starts. ERA is 7.80. #orioles
It isn't often a pitcher posts an ERA of at least 7.80 in his first 15 starts of the year, but the previous three to do so are Orioles:
Matt Harvey, 2021
Chris Tillman, 2017
Ubaldo Jiménez, 2017

Pat Tabler: “I like this guy, would be a good guy to trade for and have in the bullpen”
Trey Mancini just hit his first homer since June 11, and second this month. This after Matt Harvey escaped a bases-loaded mess in the top of the first.
Orioles, 1. Blue Jays, 0. B-1.
The Orioles came out flat and dropped their Father’s Day rubber game, despite two Trey Mancini homers.
Matt Harvey fizzled. Tempers did not flare again. Relish won.
FINAL: Blue Jays, 7. Orioles, 4.
Final line on Matt Harvey:
4 2/3 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 SO. 84 pitches, 55 strikes.
He hasn't completed five innings in any of his last nine starts.

Tor tt over 6 +100
Harvey over 3.5 ERs +115
Fade Matt Harvey day, has given up at least 5 ER in 6 of his last 7 starts. Jays should carve him up today
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH: A blind man can see that Matt Harvey needs to hang up his spikes and call it a career. Harvey is 3-5 with a 7.09 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP this season, after posting a 3-8 record with a 7.76 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP in 2019. Worse are these numbers: https://t.co/qg84xzC04r
Glad we saved this for a “Matt Harvey loss” start. Solid consolation tbh.
Matt Harvey has been terrible since 2016, but we need him to eat innings while the guys at Bowie and Aberdeen get up to speed. He's a placeholder...nothing more
Pitchers whose defenses have the worst OAA when they're on the mound this season:

Trey Mancini homers twice to reach 100, but Matt Harvey can’t get past the fifth as Orioles lose to Blue Jays, 7-4, to drop series https://t.co/2fyLuxHM9N
fading Matt Harvey at -1.5 regardless of opponent has consistently been a winner
Mini Milestones - Game 71 edition:
Trey Mancini: 100th career HR
Ryan Mountcastle: 100th career game
Pedro Severino: 200th career hit
Matt Harvey: 900th career IP

Luke: It's over as the Orioles fall 7-4 to Toronto. The Blue Jays scored four times off Matt Harvey in the top of the fifth, and Hyun Jin Ryu was excellent over seven innings. Baltimore is now 23-48.
The Orioles lost to the Blue Jays, 7-4. Matt Harvey’s fifth inning spoiled what would’ve been his best outing in some time. Trey Mancini homered twice. I never have to tweet about the Hot Dog Race again. They are 23-48.
It’s time to just cut bait with Matt Harvey. I can look the other way with losing during the rebuild, but continuing to trot out a 32 year old pitcher with a near 8 ERA and is averaging 4.14 innings per start is a giant FU to the fans and the whole team #Birdland https://t.co/TCTlhTomXB
Why is Matt Harvey and his 7.80 eta still in the big leagues ? #Orioles @Orioles
Can we please stop the Matt Harvey experiment?
Pitchers with the most errors committed by their defenses:
7: Matt Harvey
5: Luis Castillo, Wade Miley, Brandon Woodruff, Jack Flaherty, Jon Gray, Lance Lynn, Trevor Bauer, Robbie Ray, Kyle Hendricks
I think ,if you bet against Matt Harvey, every time he pitches, its low hanging fruit !!
