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.

  1. Wow…That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve read….Ever.

    If I’m a paying Mets ticket holder I’d be super fuckin pissed my team decided to do this

    • If you are paying Mets season ticket holder you are a fucking idiot and deserve what is coming to you.

  2. Also, the business people understand that he’s not ACTUALLY lucky, right? There is probably a fan somewhere who has attended SEVEN homes games with no losses? Go get that person to attend.

  3. At first – it sounds really bad…

    But, Harvey is going to be on an innings limit this year and the Mets aren’t going to make a playoff run. So if he misses a start in May instead of August or September – it isn’t a big deal

  4. Guys…You know this isn’t real life right?

  5. Dear everyone,

    I have noticed a recurring problem on many websites with comment sections. I think I know the solution, so please indulge me. There is content between the headline and the comments section. To wit:

    “Harvey is scheduled to start Tuesday’s game…”

    a cursory evaluation of the playoff schedule via NHL.com suggests that the Rangers played Monday night, they game they won, and have an off day on Tuesday, the very day Matt Harvey is scheduled to start, and do not play again until Wednesday.

  6. This is the same guy who said that the Rockies and Mets were going to play a triple header.

  7. He’s a double agent. The Mets play in Islanders territory.
