Mets | Matt Harvey's slider a key pitch

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey has thrown his slider 97 times this year and given up only one hit on the pitch. Harvey didn't throw a slider much in the minors, but when he came up to the Mets, pitching coach Dan Warthen changed Harvey's grip on the pitch a bit, and Harvey was surprised at how hard he could throw it and how much the pitch moved. "Basically," Harvey said, "I just offset the grip on my fastball -- and throw the crap out of it."
