NEW YORK (AP) - Just to be clear: New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will be at Citi Field on Wednesday night, not Madison Square Garden.
All season, longtime Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz has sent out playful notes on his new Twitter account that are totally untrue. There was one, for example, about the Mets playing a tripleheader after snowouts at Colorado.
His latest message caused more of a commotion. On Tuesday, he tweeted this: ``Matt Harvey has Mets' permission to skip game tomorrow and be at MSG to root on Rangers. Matt has not seen Rangers lose at home. 6-0.''
Horwitz said it was meant as a joke, but some news outlets and fans believed the tweet and criticized the team for its stance. Harvey started Tuesday night at home against the Chicago White Sox and is sticking to baseball. The New York Rangers host Washington in the NHL playoffs Wednesday night.
``It's amazing what some people will believe,'' Horwitz said.
