Does Matt Harvey have shoulder weakness or fatigue? Why do I ask? Innings 1-3 his ERA is 3.03; innings 4-6 his ERA is 9.89. Pitches 1-25 opponents hit .212 against him and pitches 51-75 they bat .424 against him. In addition, velocity of all pitches decline accordingly. Pitch selection 2nd and 3rd time around the lineup could be a factor but not enough to explain the vast differential. These facts should not be ignored by the Mets in diagnosing his struggles.

It's funny. Every time I mention Jake Arrieta's unbeaten streak, Mets fans remind me they beat him in Oct. Which is true. Irony alert: Jeurys Familia just broke the Mets record for most consecutive saves (32). Not counting the 3 he blew in the World Series, of course. These "active" streaks are getting confusing!
