Matt Harvey dreamed of one day pitching in a Subway Series game, albeit as a Yankee, but nonetheless he will get his shot to do so tonight with the Mets. Harvey has taken the league by storm this year with his 5-0 record while posting a 1.93 era. He has had some exciting pitching match-ups early on against the likes of Roy Halladay, Jose Fernandez and Stephen Strasburg, but tonight all eyes will be on him as he prepares for his first career start against the Yankees.
Despite pitching for a team that is 10 games under .500, Harvey has grabbed national attention and is being regarded as one of, if not the best, young starting pitcher in all of baseball. He has quickly become the toast of the town making every 5th game must watch TV for Mets and baseball fans a like. Harvey has become a regular at Rangers games as he formed a close friendship with “King Henry” Lundqvist and made headlines with his newly formed relationship with Super-Model Anna Vyalitsyna. It has been quite a year so far, to say the least, for young Matt Harvey.
Tonight will be the first time Harvey throws a game in front of a packed out Citi field. The crowd will surely be split between the fan bases and conflicting cheers will be heard throughout the night as Harvey looks to silence Yankee fans. The Yankees aren’t putting out the star-studded line up that we have become accustomed to, but it is still the Subway Series which garner’s more attention than any other game the Mets will play this year. Harvey wants the spotlight and tonight he will be front and center as he looks to make a statement against the storied franchise tonight.
