Honestly, I wanted to write this post because of the Batman pun. However, it is the truth as Matt Harvey made his Mets debut tonight and made the Diamondbacks hitters look like a bunch of Jokers striking out 11 over 5.1 innings, giving up 3 hits and walking 2 batters and better than that, gave up no runs. He Two-Faced the Snakes by going 2 for 2 with a double as well. The bullpen didn't do their Scarecrow routine and held the lead for a change. Will Harvey become a Bane to Arizona's existence? Probably not, but perhaps the rest of the league will need to crack the riddle that he brings now.
Yes, this was one start, but after a 1-11 start in the second half, the Mets seem to be fully in next season mode, so it's time to see what some prospects have now. Matt Harvey showed to be a power arm unafraid to pitch inside. Does this mean Zack Wheeler will come up before the end of the year? Perhaps. Will there be new bullpen arms in August and September? There better be if you're a Mets fan. That's for another day; today, let's celebrate Harvey.
