Matt Harvey’s rise to stardom has been long in the making, but he might be entering one of the most important starts of his career today. How is that possible? Well, the Mets weren’t contenders in late 2012 or 2013, so it wan’t a start prior to this year, and this year, every single one of his starts has been with the Mets preforming well, or very early in the season. Thus, with very little math, Harvey is about to enter one of the most important games of his career: A struggling Mets team looks at their ace to win a crucial game against the NL East favorites’ ace pitcher. These are the games that define pitchers. If Harvey goes out there and is mediocre, maybe we should adjust our glasses when watching him, but something tells me that Harvey’s confidence and demeanor will prevail tonight.
