Matt Harvey made hi final start of 2012 yesterday, and it makes me even more excited for the 2013 season. Harvey was absolutely sensational for seven innings of work, allowing only a single hit while striking out seven. The Mets would lose the game anyway, as Ryan Howard sunk the Mets with a ninth inning homerun. I guess his contract is justified after all...

Anyway, here's the box score from the game.

The Mets financial situation will become a hot topic again as the season concludes, but Bud Selig isn't worried. Of course he isn't.

Ever wanted to watch a movie about the knuckleball? Looks like you'll get your chance, and one R.A. Dickey will have a role in the film. Hooray!

Yesterday at AA:

We have the recap of Matt Harvey's last start of the season a little further down the front page, but here's a link in case you don't want to scroll.

Omar had a plan, and his plan, he liked his plan. Chris McShane looks at cheering for a good process, something that Omar's plan could not have been described as.

Finally for the day at AA, Rob took a look towards Houston at former Met farmhand Fernando Martinez.

Around MLB:

The postseason is fast approaching, and there are some interesting races shaping up. MLB.Com has a look at what the playoff picture would look like right now if they started this evening, but that may welll look a little different by the end of the weekend.

Atlanta doesn't look set to complete another collapse, they just keep winning every time there 3-apple tall ace takes the mound. That's 21 of his starts in a row.

The Dodgers almost had a terrible day in the wild card race yesterday, but Matt Kemp managed to come to the rescue. Trust the process...

St. Louis refused to let anyone gain ground on them, beating the hapless Astros to remain in the wild card lead. What will the NL do next year with the loss of the Astros?

One team that looks like they might be effectively out of the race is the Pirates. Playoffs or no, this season still has to be viewed as a success for them.

Miguel Cabrera is making a serious run at the triple crown as the Tigers try to win the AL Central. He homered last night as they won again.

The Orioles also keep on winning, sweeping the Mariners.

Finally for today, could 10-man bullpens be in fashion for the wild card? It's possible.
