    NY Mets' Matt Harvey hoping to return in September 2014-5 to 7 starts

    NY Mets' Matt Harvey hoping to return in September 2014


    After watching the Yankees pile up high-priced free agent after high-priced free agent, Mets fans finally got some good news.

    Star pitcher Matt Harvey, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, said he is excited by his progress and hopes to pitch in September, according to MLB.com.

    "I'd like (to return) right now," said Harvey at the Boston Baseball Writers Dinner where he was honored as New England Player of the Year. "That's not possible. I'd like to shoot for being out there in September. Obviously I don't make those decisions. I can only prepare to the best of my ability and make sure I'm in good strength and flexibility, and when they do let me go, I'm good to go."

    Harvey, who was having a brilliant season with Mets in 2013, going 9-5 with 2.26 ERA in 26 starts while also making All-Star start before being shut down, said he will be at spring training.

    "I think so. I really haven't talked to [general manager] Sandy [Alderson] or [chief operating officer] Jeff [Wilpon] or anybody quite yet, but that's what I plan on doing," Harvey said. "Getting down there while throwing time is approaching is probably a good decision."

    I love the fact that Harvey just seems to love playing baseball. In today's business saturated sports world, I rarely get the sense that people are out there out of pure love for the game. I'm sure that some will criticize his bravado, but I just think that the kid loves to play baseball and is eager to get out there and play the game he loves. Its like Ernie Banks recovering from Tommy John

    I'm sure he'd pitch tomorrow if the team asked him to.

    I wish his TJ was done earlier so this was possible. Just to get his feet wet before 2015.

    To be fair they were trying to figure out a way to avoid it. I think halladay skipped TJS and told harvey so. They still did it early enough to be fine for the 2015 season

    If the Doctors feel he is ready, then why not.

    He will comeback in Game 1 of the WS against the Yankees and pitch a perfect game.

    I get this and understand it, but no need to rush

    its a moot point because the mets will be long out of the race by then

    let him get healthy for 2015 when alderson is hopefully fired and a real team is around him

    Good point.

    We're about a 70 win team. There is zero point in rushing back Harvey for meaningless games in September, risking him getting hurt. I'm more worrying about 2015.

    2015 could see a health Harvey, Syndergaard, Wheeler, Gee, and Niese (I personally don't think Bartolo Colon will make it past this year...). Hell, we may even see either Gee or Niese knocked out of the rotation for Montero. A healthy Harvey makes that a beast rotation, and all we would really need is a bullpen arm or two, and one more bat in order to make a legit 4-6 year run at winning titles (notice how I used the work title in the plural sense).

    That can all be blown if we risk Harvey getting hurt in meaningless games. If the Mets are out of it in September, and they rush Harvey back, PLEASE boycott the game. Don't buy the tickets, and don't watch the game.

    So this team is worse than last year's team?
