Your Saturday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

It was a rocky (and Rockie) night for Matt Harvey in Colorado as he again struggled on the mound in a 5-2 loss at Coors Field. Harvey didn't make it out of the sixth inning, getting pulled after giving up 11 hits and 5 runs. It's the latest in a series of bad performances by Harvey this year. He now sports a 3-5 record and a 4.93 ERA.

Kevin Plawecki drove in the Mets' only two runs of the night when he doubled home Asdrubal Cabrera and Neil Walker in the second.

Steiner Sports is apparently holding a shindig at the 40/40 club on May 26 honoring the 30th anniversary of the 1986 world championship season. Fans can buy (expensive) tickets and hobnob with Daryl Strawberry, Doc Gooden, Mookie Wilson, and Jesse Orosco.

The Mets' Twitter account destroyed a Braves fan earlier today before apparently deleting their tweet.

The Boston Red Sox' offense has apparently been better than the 1927 Yankees so far this year.

The Minnesota Twins have not been better than the 1927 Yankees.
