Harvey suspended by Mets

No one doubts the Dark Knight wants to succeed; that's not what this episode is about.

According to a bunch of anonymous sources duking it out across a range of reporters, Harvey played golf on Saturday, and then didn't bother going to the stadium after telling the team that he was suffering from migraines.

Harvey has reportedly filed a grievance in response to the suspension, which is a pretty clear indication that the relationship between Harvey and the Mets is as damaged as it has ever been, perhaps beyond fix.

Harvey was suspended for three days without pay, with the suspension in effect on Sunday. The Mets could lift Harvey's suspension and have him start, or push him back again until Saturday, which would have been his next scheduled start had he taken the mound Sunday.

Left-hander Adam Wilk was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to start in Harvey's place.

Players "scared" to criticize Sharapova - Bouchard
Against Mladenovic in Stuttgart, Sharapova had three break points to earn a shot at closing the match in straight sets. Sharapova was adamant the hype surrounding the match-up didn't distract her and expected Bouchard to come out firing.

How would all of this be playing out, not just between the pitcher and the team, if his record was 4-0 and his earned run average was under three runs a game, the way it briefly was in NY, instead of 2-2 and 5.14? The Mets managed only one hit in a 7-0 loss and were shut out for the first time this season.

Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Monday that Matt Harvey will rejoin the rotation on Friday in Milwaukee.

"I know he's been a starting pitcher", Collins said of Milone.

They think he is one. Harvey believes the Mets were checking to make sure he wasn't lying while the Mets side says the team was anxious because Harvey wasn't responding and that's why they sent two security people to see if he needed help. “We hope to put it behind us and move forward.”.

It's never easy with the New York Mets. In 17 starts last season, he was 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA.

I think ultimately if I'd had better pace then I would have been further up. "The relationship between the two of them is very much intact".

The New York Mets are doing their best to stay afloat.

Harvey is coming off a year that was shortened by injury and surgery.

-Baltimore Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop was out for the second straight game after being hit on the right wrist with a pitch on Friday night. It's a foregone conclusion Harvey will bolt the Mets as a free agent in 2018.

NY is coming off a weekend in which star pitcher Noah Syndergaard was put on the 60-day disabled list because of a torn latissimus dorsi muscle and the team was embarrassed when it tweeted a photo of T.J. Rivera wearing the star-of-the-game crown in the clubhouse, which included a clearly visible sex toy in backup catcher Kevin Plawecki's locker.
