Miami Marlins v New York Mets

The New York Rangers have themselves a good luck charm of sorts in the New York Mets’ Matt Harvey. The Rangers have not lost at home in games which Harvey has attended. The 24-year old stud was in attendance for the Rangers’ 4-3 victory over the Washington Capitals, the team’s first win of the 2013 playoffs. Lucky for the Rangers that the Mets had Monday off.

So what now for the Rangers? The Mets are reportedly willing to allow Harvey to skip their Tuesday night contest versus the Chicago White Sox… or are they?


Harvey is scheduled to start Tuesday’s game, thus he has Wednesday off. This is probably just some fooling around on Twitter via Mr. Horwitz, though. He’s having quite a time messing with Mets fans…


Harvey is currently sporting a 1.56 ERA, 2.27 FIP, and 2.92 xFIP to go along with 30.7 K% in 40 innings of work. Letting him skip a game to watch a Rangers game at Madison Square Garden would probably be received by Mets fans about as well as shipping him to the Phillies for Delmon Young

Well played, Jay Horwitz, well played.
