One game does not a career make, but much ballyhooed prospect Matt Harvey bolstered beleaguered Mets fansí spirits by living up to the hype in his major league debut as he struck out 11 while allowing no runs against the Diamondbacks. Miraculously, the Mets bullpen didnít blow the game, despite the best efforts of Jon Rauch and Bobby Parnell to put the tying runs on in the eighth and ninth innings, respectively. Mets SNY voice Gary Cohen noted how rare it is for a Mets pitcher to win his first-ever game.
Harveyís win couldnít have come at a better time. The day before, the Mets completed a winless homestand, losing 5-1 to the Nationals, for their 12th defeat in 13 games. Tempers had flared as reliever Tim Byrdak started jawing with catcher Josh Thole, and later pitching coach Dan Warthen, after surrendering a two-run dinger to Adam LaRoche that put the game out of reach.

Despite being well-like by colleagues and having been named “employee of the month” eight times, Larry is called into a meeting with store executives and told that he is being let go because he lacks a college degree. While the film implies that he is a victim of downsizing, it seems that he is instead hurt by a new, sudden “up or out” philosophy at the store since he is told that without the sheepskin he can never be promoted.
