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.
