Mets player on Matt Harvey: 'He wants to be Derek Jeter'

10 May 2017

"Apology accepted. People f-k up", one Met told the Daily News.

Conforto hit just.220 last season and was not on the roster when Syndergaard threw seven innings of two-hit ball and Bumgarner threw a four-hit complete game in the Giants' 3-0 win on October 5. Familia (1-0) threw just five pitches in a ideal ninth on Monday.

Collins says Harvey will return to the Mets on Tuesday and it is up to the pitcher whether to address teammates as a group or individually. Conor Gillaspie hit a three-run homer in the ninth off Familia, and Madison Bumgarner pitched a four-hitter to outlast Syndergaard. "Even in those years that we did win the championship, there was a month in there somewhere where we really struggled", Giants manager Bruce Bochy said prior to Monday's game. "It's surprising. Sometimes you go the other way". San Francisco is already seven games out in the wild-card race and 9 1/2 games out in the NL West. "Anybody in that room that misses a day and nobody knows about it, we've got to do the same thing".

Let us further stipulate that, yes, one of those options could be to send him to the minors for a time to give him a wakeup call or whatever. Both were off deGrom, who reached double-digit strikeouts for the fourth time in five games. His past three starts have included nearly as many homers allowed (four) as strikeouts (five).

Wizards' Oubre suspended for Game 4 for knocking over Olynyk
His absence will likely mean more run for the Wizards starters, and possibly more playing time for reserve Bojan Bogdanovic. Oubre charged Olynyk and knocked him to the floor with a forearm to the chest.

The tabloids are all soaking up the drama: the Daily News argued, "Mets, Matt Harvey must part ways for everybody's best interest" while the Post said, "The Mets have only themselves to blame for the Matt Harvey fiasco". T.J. Rivera delivered a game-tying RBI double in the fifth, and pinch hitter Curtis Granderson tied the game again an inning later with another run-scoring double.

Mets star pitcher Matt Harvey was suspended three days without pay by the team on Sunday for an undisclosed violation of team rules, the latest hiccup for a club beset by problems on and off the field this season. He didn't get the message to Warthen in time, however, so the Mets sent members of their security team to Harvey's home at 10 p.m. Saturday night to check on his story. He is to rejoin the team Tuesday.

Collins managed his 1,003rd game with the Mets, tying Bobby Valentine for second on the franchise list behind Davey Johnson (1,012). Samardzija also isn't the pitcher you want trying to get the team back on track, as he's had no success this season and has an ERA of 6.27 on the road. Hill has been on the DL since April 24. Samardzija is coming off his best start of the season last Wednesday, when he didn't factor into the decision despite allowing only an unearned run over eight innings in the Giants' 4-1, 11-inning win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
