The New York Mets have selected Matt Harvey with the 7th overall pick of the 2010 Draft. To read my report on Harvey Click here:

Jason A. Churchill, of ESPN.com, told me this on the Mets drafting Harvey, “Mets fans should be happy.”  Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus was asked about the Mets pick of Harvey, “Utterly thrilled. At seven, the Mets select Matt Harvey. I appreciate them making me look smart, as if I may wax my own car here, I was the first to pop that one.”

Harvey was 8-3, 3.09 ERA 96 IP, 80 hits, 33 er, 35 bb, 102 k.  Harvey held opponents to a .224 average.

Met fans should be very excited about the drafting of Harvey.  We will have more reaction to this selection in the next few days.
