Happy Harvey Day! The Mets look to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Marlins...wait, what? Today's game begins at 1:10 PM with Matt Harvey facing off against Kevin Slowey.

Regarding the Mets' offensive stuggles, Terry Collins states the obvious.

Ike Davis has made some subtle tweaks to his stance but outside observers think he needs an entire swing makeover.

Jon Niese is expected to make his next start, says Terry Collins. In other injury news, Matt den Dekker is not particularly close to returning from a wrist injury. Lefty Tim Byrdak is getting closer, as the lefty tossed his first inning in extended spring training.

Ken Davidoff looks at some advanced numbers when it comes to the first two months of Matt Harvey's 2013 season.

Around the NL East

B.J. Upton's struggles were pushed aside for one night, at least, as the struggling center fielder hit a 10th inning walk-off single to help the Braves beat the Nationals 2-1. The Nats promoted top prospect Anthony Rendon up to Triple-A Syracuse.

The Phillies lost to the Brewers again 4-3, partially thanks to this awful call by umpire Mike Estabrook. Nope, no need for instant replay, Mr. Selig. Baseball is just fine without it.

Around the Majors

Newsday has a great piece on all of the Ivy Leaguers that populate MLB front offices.

Adam Wainwright's strikeout to walk rate is insane. Meanwhile, Shelby Miller continues to dominate. Damn you, Cardinals.

Recently demoted Mariners' catcher Jesus Montero is now out for 4-6 weeks with a torn meniscus. Well, that Montero for Michael Pineda trade has really turned into a dud.

At least five teams are interested in recently DFA'd Braves' third baseman Juan Francisco.
