Matt Harvey was seen throwing back drinks just hours before he texted team officials and informed them he would not be able to attend a game this weekend due to a migraine.

After missing a turn in the rotation, the right-hander is slated to make his next start at Milwaukee on Friday night when NY begins a six-game road trip. He offered no public explanation for his tardiness, saying he simply "screwed up". When he returned to Citi Field Sunday, the Mets finally put him in his place by suspending him without pay. "In every occasion I've been a part of, a guy has come back and he's learned his lesson and we've moved on".

Here is Matt Harvey's full opening statement, in which he apologizes.

Collins managed his 1,003rd game with the Mets, tying Bobby Valentine for second on the franchise list behind Davey Johnson (1,012).

The Mets say Harvey didn't tell them where he was. In spite of early rumors that the suspension may have had something to do with a locker room prank, it was rather Harvey's own insubordination.

The Mets started Adam Wilk in Harvey's absence on Sunday and will turn to Tommy Milone, recently cut by the Milwaukee Brewers, for a start on Wednesday. He was given a three-day suspension by the New York Mets for failing to show up. The Mets are 7-3 in their last 10 Tuesday games, 0-5 in Wheelers last 5 starts vs.

"We needed it", Mets manager Terry Collins said. Samardzija also isn't the pitcher you want trying to get the team back on track, as he's had no success this season and has an ERA of 6.27 on the road. When all the news goes all against a guy to me, it's all coming from the Mets management.

Blues vs. Predators: Game 4 prediction
The Ducks now have lost back-to-back games in regulation for the first time since the first two games of this season. Louis' best player throughout the day, including 17 in a second period where the Blues were outshot 18-4.

As you would expect, the NY tabloids are all over this story.

HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Rockets backup center Nene has suffered a season-ending muscle tear in his left thigh.

Plawecki described it as a prank by someone else.

On the field, the Mets are missing Syndergaard (latissimus dorsi), outfielder Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring), first baseman Lucas Duda (elbow), catcher Travis d'Arnaud (wrist), left-hander Steven Matz (elbow), right-hander Seth Lugo (elbow) and third baseman David Wright (recovery from neck surgery). You've got to forget about it.

Page Six reported that Harvey was out partying at 1Oak till 4 a.m. the night before the game he missed.

Two years ago, following the Tommy John procedure that cost him all of 2014, Harvey still looked like the dominant starter he had been since his arrival in NY in 2012.

Plagued by injuries, obstinance and absenteeism, the New York Mets have managed to win seven of 10 following a six-game losing streak.
