New York Mets: Matt Harvey’s Batting Numbers Reflect Off-Field Success (Photo)

New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey is back and sporting perhaps the greatest line of batting statistics in the history of baseball.

Whether you’re a fan of the New York Mets or Yankees, the name of Derek Jeter will never be forgotten.

Forget about his on-field success that saw the captain win five World Series titles. Forget about his Baseball Hall of Fame credentials that saw him collect over 3,000 hits (most in franchise history).

What we’ll always remember about Jeets is his off-field success with the ladies.

Rumors had it that he would actually hand out gift baskets to those certain special ladies the next morning. But I digress.

Another man who’s traveled down this path in recent memory is Mets hurler Matt Harvey. From Adriana Lima to Devon Windsor, Shannon Rusbuldt to Ashley Haas, the term “Harvey Day” has turned into a loaded phrase.

On Wednesday night, in the Mets 17-5 loss to the Chicago Cubs that saw Harvey relent five runs on seven hits in just 3.1 innings, No. 33 stepped up to the plate with perhaps the most fitting batting statistics for a man of his kind (photo above).

  • BA: .069
  • OBP: .069
  • SLG: .069

Nothing else needs to be said. Carry on.
