Didn't see the game, but from what I heard on the WFAN this morning, though Harvey wasn't at his best, the defense around him wasn't very good either.
Harvey has a 2.77 ERA in his last 7 starts, but he's been a little more up-and-down than before:
0 ER: 3 starts
3+ ER: 4 starts
Overall, his numbers for that stretch: 48.2 IP, 40 H, 15 ER, 7 BB, 49 K
Not like he's been bad in the slightest in his last seven (just less consistent), and it'd be nice if the guy didn't have to be perfect to get a W next to his name. The fact that I'm even bringing up these seven starts (which have obviously seen their share of Harvey at his best) shows how ridiculously high Harvey has already set the bar. He'll never say anything bad about his teammates, but it must be wearing on him on some level.
Not going to kill Ike for not getting it done as a PH last night (that AB I did see), but at the same time, until he shows he can start coming through in spots like that, fans are going to remain skeptical about him no matter how high his OB% is. The guy is still a .206 hitter, after hitting .227 last season, and he's slugging .316 for the season this year. He's clearly made strides (though I could've said the same thing last season), but he's not where he needs to be yet, if he wants to be an everyday first baseman.
Flores could be headed to the DL with an ankle problem...yep, God still hates the Mets. Mets' AAA third baseman is Zack Lutz, who's now 27 and probably won't help much (he's been up for brief cups of coffee)...I'm thinking it will be Turner and Satin if Flores can't play. Get the feeling the Mets' infield D is going to be hard to watch as the season closes.
Hoping d'Arnaud is up here SOON!
