There's no bigger topic surrounding the defending NL champion Mets than the baffling downward spiral of Matt Harvey. The Dark Knight's pitching has fans and media alike scratching their heads.
We brought back Daily News Mets beat writer Kristie Ackert on Friday to discuss what's going on with Harvey and all the other key topics surrounding the Mets heading into Memorial Day Weekend.
Ackert weighed in on Harvey's decreased velocity, his fight to stay in the rotation and his no-show performance with the media earlier this week. She also gave us her take on what would serve Harvey best going forward.
We also spend time talking about if Steven Matz is actually benefitting from Harvey stealing the spotlight as the Long Islander quietly is putting up an Amazin' season.
Ackert filled us in on what it was like to cover Bartolo Colon's home run, how David Wright's new routine is going, if anything can slow down Yoenis Cespedes and the too-long list of injured players.
Oh, yeah, and we also talked about the '86 Mets who are being celebrated this weekend at Citi Field.
