Matt Harvey doing well, excited for Mets baseball

So far this off-season, Sandy Alderson has committed $87 million to Curtis Granderson, Bartolo Colon and Chris Young.

“I like it,” Matt Harvey said on MSG, during halftime of the Knicks game. “I talked to Jeff Wilpon and he gave me a call after he signed both those guys. We’re really excited for Mets baseball.”

Harvey said his rehab from Tommy John surgery is going well.

“I wish I could be out there for Opening Day,” he said, knowing he will miss all of 2014. “My arm feels extremely well. It’s a slow process, but everything’s going really well.”

Have a feeling he's rushing cause of his wanna be celeb necessity.

We're gone miss Harvey. Hopefully Wheeler can pull off a Harvey performance from last year.

STOP with the $86M. Geez, I can NOT take anymore of this SNY/Mets propaganda BS.


Our payroll will be BELOW what it was last season. How is spending $86M (collectively over 7 years for 3 players) some sort of goodwill gesture to the fanbase? Our payroll is going DOWN.


Matt Cerrone and other Mets employees, please stop patronizing your readers. I'm insulted that you think so lowly of us..

Geez.  Wilpon is a groupie.  Did he call EYJR after the signings?

So, now that the dumbing down of MetsBlog is complete, what's the consensus on where the real commenters are to migrate?

Wow, not one lame unfunny reference to Qualcomm that proves once again that as Mets' fans we have a preternatural ability to focus on the meaninglessly negative even when it comes to one of the best things to happen to this team in years and that even the Mets do start winning again we won't deserve it because we're totally anhedonic and it would just be wasted on us.  Maybe we're getting better after all...

@'Giovanni JiminezThat's the second straight post that you've counted "Thor" and Syndegaard as two different people which makes me wonder if it wasn't a typo.You do realize that "Thor" is Syndegaard's nickname right?Perhaps you meant to type Mejia instead.

@Erin II FB encourages a kind of intellectual shorthand that reduces thought to the depth and level of texting. It's unfortunate that the folks who live there tend to be kids and/or not very bright, no offense and IMO. Why anyone would want to boil our commentary down to that consistency is....perplexing. To put it charitably.

@Erin II the idea that you could dumb down the Metsblog comments section is hilarious, but hey, here we are

Seriously what are you even here for??All you want to do is complain about Matt the owner of the site?? Jealous much?? Does the content of his site not make up for the small honest mistakes? Other then you really cares that he made the mistake of writing El Sid was a righty instead of a lefty? He was correctly saying that smFernandez is one of the greatest net pitchers of all time!

You are correct about one thing this comment section does have shit a shallow simpleminded dimwit! Hopefully you're not simpleminded enough to know that I'm talking about you .

There are so many of the blogs dedicated to the Mets and baseball and sports why don't you just go dear! I've been reading this blog for ever and I hate guys like you honestly

Hey E2,I haven't been paying a lot of attention; is there a consensus on which site we're migrating to?

@metstastic So is the fact that the Mariners and Yankees have spent in excess of $300M (see how easy that was, adding every single contract over every year???), the Giants over $170M and the Twins, Cardinals, Red Sox and White Sox spending about the same amount we have.


Doesn't excuse how Metsblog keeps trumpeting $87M while continually ignoring the fact our payroll is going DOWN, year by year.

@xgamblorx  Dude, go read some of those FB comments..... LGM!!!!!! or LOL!! or METS METS METS. Seriously, these people are making a concerted effort to sapp IQ points from me.


You`re a long time commenter here. Are you going to tell me that you don`t get a lot of good value from 3 or 4 dozen of the top commenters on this site? IMO, without the main core of commenters that this place has somehow managed to cultivate, this site has very little value.

@Joe Paulson I`ve been commenting on here for 5 years. The flood of Facebook comments just started last night. All of the long time commenters don`t want to have to sift through all of these childish comments to read the few comments from people that actually have something to say. Hope this clears it up for you, Joe.

@metstastic The more RELEVANT figure would be $30.25M added to our payroll, which JUST shed $40M from Santana and Bay alone.


Care to expound on that, Matt?
