Clash of the mother fucking titans at CitiField tonight. Harvey is red hot through his three starts all W’s. Throwing twenty-two innings in three games, he has 2 earned runs, one homer, 25 k’s, and 6 FUCKING HITS. Harvey averages 1 hit per 3 innings. Thats future HOF numbers, but hell it’s still only April. Strasburg on the other hand is ICE COLD. Strasburg is 1-2 record, has a 2.95 ERA in 18.1 innings, allowing 17 hits and 15 strikeouts. That’s mediocre garbage.
But don’t get me wrong, Harvey is a stud, but nothing compared to Strasburg…yet. Strasburg is a straight G, the whole Nationals organization is a bunch of yellow-belly cowards for sitting him during the playoffs. The guy is the best pitcher in the game, but he sure hasn’t been pitching like one.
Strasburg owns the Mets and Harvey has only pitched once against the Nats although he barely lost that game 2-0.
The Mets just lost 2 games out in Colorado, (getting snowed out 2 of those games) playing in conditions similar to the snow planet Hoth from Star Wars.
The Nationals dropped 4 of their last 6 and aren’t playing good baseball right now, and forecast of shitty weather is exactly what the Amazin’s need. If the Mets can take advantage of a vulnerable Washington team, they might be able to sneak a W out in Flushing against one of the best pitchers in baseball.
Hopefully Matt Harvey can do the damn thang and turn the Mets’ losing skid around.
