It’s funny how this stuff works out.
Before each season, SNY and the Mets decide which Buffalo Bisons game to air on SNY. If you didn’t know, the Bisons are the Mets’ Triple-A affiliate.
So the Bisons play Toledo at home right now. Jason Bay is starting in left field and batting second. But that’s not the big news of the game.
I’m sure that most of you have heard of Matt Harvey by now. If you haven’t, you will soon. Harvey is the Mets’ stud pitching prospect, who might start for the Mets and make his Major League debut on Saturday. Today is essentially a tryout, which will decide if Harvey is added to the Mets rotation or if Batista is.
I think we all want Harvey, so check him out on SNY now. This is a crucial game for the Mets. Harvey is supposed to be a can’t miss prospect, and hopefully we’ll get to see if he’s the real deal later this week.
By the way, Matt Harvey is the first Mets draft pick since we began MetsOnline.com, so it’s really cool to see that he might be promoted soon. Here’s my blog post from draft night 2010.
