MLB: Mets Pitcher Matt Harvey 'Embarrassed' By Men's Journal Article

Jul 22 2013, 2:17am CDT | by

New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey says he is "embarrassed" by a Men's Journal article which claims he admires New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter and his penchant for dating beautiful women.

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey says he is "embarrassed" by a recent Men's Journal article which has him talking about New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter's love life. 

A CBS New York report dated July 18 says Harvey "sounded like a guy who wanted to be seen as the standard for dating, fashion and just about, well, everything else" in reference to the Men's Journal piece which says Harvey looks up to Jeter in terms of the women he's dated and how he's kept this life aspect a secret.

"That guy is the model. I mean, first off, let's just look at the women he'd dated. Obviously, he goes out - he's meeting these girls somewhere - but you never hear about it. That's where I want to be." 

Harvey, a Connecticut native, also professed his love for New York City in the article by saying,"Man, do I f------ love this city." 

However, the 24-year-old pitching ace shed some light on his Men's Journal comments when he spoke with the New York Times' Andrew Keh, saying they are not an accurate depiction of his true persona.  

Keh tweeted Harvey's sentiments on the matter on July 22. 

"Matt Harvey:'I read the articles and obviously was embarrassed by it. The way I was portrayed is not who I am and not the person I am.'"

Harvey then said he wanted "to deal with it on the field," according to Newsday's Marc Carig via Sports Illustrated. This is supplemented by an ESPN New York blog from Adam Rubin dated July 21 which has Mets manager Terry Collins saying Harvey played with "a little anger" in their 5-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field on Sunday. 

"I think Matt was  on a little bit of a mission today to silence all the other stuff that's going on and let everybody know he's here to pitch and he's here to play baseball. I think today he went out there with a little anger."

Harvey, who is 8-2 in 2013 with a 2.23 ERA, posed nude in ESPN the Magazine's "The Body" issue.

Mets mathematically eliminated from MLB playoffs

Sep 19 2014 9:09pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Terry Collins sees his Mets eliminated from the playoffs, the eighth consecutive season they won't see postseason play. The Mets season has long been over, but the books officially closed on their 2014 playoff hopes on Friday night. New York is leading the Braves, but the second Wild Card-leading Pirates (83-70) beat the Brewers on Friday, giving them Pittsburgh more win than is possible for the 73-80 Mets. While the Mets received some pleasant performances, notably ...

Jacob deGrom's Unexpected Emergence Is Exactly What New York Mets Fans Need

Sep 19 2014 1:47pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Mets and their fans have desperately needed a story like Jacob deGrom's. In a year where the team was faced with the familiar feeling of not making the playoffs, staring in the face of a long 162 games without Matt Harvey taking the mound and a season where Curtis Granderson—who has hit under .250 every season except one since 2009—was instantly the biggest offensive threat on the roster when he left the crosstown Yankees for the seve ...

eMail Q&A: Will the Mets ever have a New York payroll?

Sep 19 2014 11:05am CDT | Source: mets blog

Jerry in Florida: As you mentioned the other day, budget dollars for the Mets are still ‘tight.’ I will not be upset if the Mets don’t spend on a shortstop, as long they re-direct that money to the outfield. … I’m no scholar, but isn’t investing into your product the way to put people in the stands, therefore enabling a team to re-invest in their roster? The Mets don’t seem to follow that principle and maybe you can enlighten me as to why… Matthew Cerrone: There isn’t a direct line between sp ...

“Sandy Alderson essentially said Monday that he cannot protect all of the prospects in December’s Rule 5 draft that he would like to shield because of a 40-man roster crunch,” reports Adam Rubin (ESPN NY, Sept. 16). The 40-man roster, which is full, already includes infielder Dilson Herrera and pitcher Dario Alvarez. The Mets will be able to remove Daisuke Matsuzaka and Bobby Abreu.

NYP: Gooden says deGrom deserves Rookie of the Year

Doc Gooden told reporter Dan Martin that Jacob deGrom deserves to win the NL Rookie of the Year award, just as Gooden did during his rookie season in 1984. “Striking out eight guys in a row, that really put the stamp on it for me,” Gooden told Martin. “That’s the kind of thing you need to do to get people’s attention, especially as a starting pitcher.” Gooden also believes deGrom has a similar maturity on the ...
