The Morning Edition (June 19, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • Harvey flirts with a no-no, Ks 13 and Wheeler goes 6 scoreless to sweep the DH
  • The Sox sweep the Rays in a DH as Gomes walks off
  • Goldy walks off in the desert
  • Sweeney and Ranson homer to beat Wainwright
  • Parker out does Darvish, despite 10 K
  • Lee dazzles again

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Ryu and Kuroda in NY (1p Eastern)
  • Fernandez faces Cahill at Chase Field (330p Eastern)
  • Chris Sale gets the Twins after the hardest of luck losses last time (8p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • What Tuesday a glimpse into the Mets future?

Matt Harvey pulled into a WAR tie with league leader Adam Wainwright after their starts on Tuesday at 3.8 after a great start featuring 13 K. He has a 2.04 FIP and a nearly 5:1 K:BB ratio. I don’t like to make big proclamations like this, but he’s probably the under 25 pitcher to watch if we’re thinking about who are going to be the game’s best in the next four or five seasons. But his rotation mate was strong too, as far as strikeouts and run prevention go. The walks were a bit of an issue, but Wheeler is young and should improve. I like the Mets rotation, now only if they could play OF on their off days. And if you’re like me and enjoy this kind of thing, here’s what they did on Tuesday:
