Mets-Yankees Preview (The Associated Press)

The hype and expectations surrounding Matt Harvey have led to his starts being treated as some sort of holiday by the New York Mets, but he may not even be the best pitcher on his own team. After getting back in the win column on the latest “Harvey Day,” the Mets will look for Jonathon Niese to continue the best stretch of his career Sunday night against the New York Yankees in the finale of this Subway Series. Harvey’s return from Tommy John surgery has been celebrated by the Mets (14-4), and his 4-0 record and 3.04 ERA has justified the growing hype. He was superb again Saturday, coming one out shy of a complete game in an 8-2 win over the Yankees (10-8) after the Mets’ 11-game winning streak ended with a 6-1 defeat a day earlier.
