The Morning Edition (June 18, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • Johnson and De La Rosa both go 7 scoreless, but the Jays score late to win
  • The Nats tie it in the 9th, but Brown walks off for the Phils
  • The Royals get 2 late runs to beat the Indians 2-1
  • 5 good innings for Miller, who leaves with an injury

What I’m Watching Today:

  • The Matt Harveys come to ATL (1p Eastern)
  • Cliff Lee faces the Nationals (7p Eastern)
  • Zack Wheeler makes him MLB debut in game two of a DH (7p Eastern)
  • Parker and Darvish in Arlington (8p Eastern)
  • Sharky and Wainwright in St. Louis (8p Eastern)
  • Bonderman! (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • Can the Mets make tomorrow Groundhog Day?

It’s been a tough season for Mets fans, but they should have fun tomorrow. They have ace and Cy Young contender Matt Harvey opening the day, but top prospect Zack Wheeler will make his debut in the night cap. Harvey has already showed himself to be a star, but if Wheeler can be as good as advertised, this could be quite the 1-2 punch for the next 6 seasons. I bet the Giants wish they still had him. Wheeler’s strikeout rate in the minor leagues has been great, but he’ll need to dampen the walks a bit to succeed in the big leagues. Luckily for him, he gets the strikeout prone Braves in his debut.
