Terry on the Mets win and Matt Harvey’s debut

Following last night’s game, Terry Collins talked to reporters and had the following to say about:

Matt Harvey, who had eleven strike outs in his big-league debut:

“Well it was electric stuff for sure. Tremendous composure. Due to the velocity throughout the first four innings you could tell he was pretty juiced up…He’s lived up to exactly what everybody’s talked about…It’s great to know you have a young man like that, because that just tells you the future’s bright…He’s a different cat, I’m telling you. That makeup is off the charts.”

Harvey’s composure on the mound:

“His demeanor on the mound was very special. He didn’t look shook up at all. He obviously had great concentration. To be honest, I really thought Rob Johnson did a nice job. I thought he did a nice job getting him through it and obviously he felt comfortable with Rob back there. But he made some great pitches…It was a great game for us.”

Josh Edgin, who pitched 1.2 innings with no hits and no runs scored:

“Josh has pitched great for us. We played great in the first half without Josh Edgin. That just tells you I don’t know where we would have been had we had him. There’s some bright spots. You have to look down the road and say holy cow, you got these two guys that are young rookies coming up here and putting on a show like that. That’s pretty impressive to think that that’s something to build on.”
