Well now, Matt Harvey, look at what we've done here...
While proving to the rest of the National League that Matt Harvey is one of the true elite aces on the diamond, the Mets youngster is doing his best outside the lines to prove he deserves the true stud status. Us Weekly is now reporting that Matt Harvey's girlfriend is Anne V. Fpr those unaware of the model who goes by first name and last initial only, Anne V is best known for Sports Illustrated swimsuit fame having appeared in a record 9 straight swimsuit issues from 2005-2013, but has also made headlines for her lovelife as well. In 2010, Anne V (whose real name is Anne Vyalitsyna - OK, we get first name last initial only now), met and began dating Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine until 2012. In February of 2013, she was rumored to have briefly dated DJ/singer/songwriter Calvin Harris (who released an album 18 Months which is shockingly addictive).
Fast forward to May 6, 2013 when Matt Harvey and Anne V are reported to have met on an elevator and exchanged numbers. The two have been on a few dates since that time and were seen together at the Rangers Bruins playoff game in New York on May 23. For his part, Matt is fully embracing the excitement of being the best non-David Wright thing to happen to Mets baseball since Bill Buckner, and tweeted out details of their meeting:
@MattHarvey33: A @NYRangers win! Riding the elevator out of the garden with the beautiful @AnneV. And now bedtime, to get ready for @Mets baseball
By May 12, Anne V was posting videos of Mets fans doing the wave at CitiField. Hey, guess who was on the mound that night throwing 7 strong against Pittsburgh?
Good for you, young Matt Harvey. We'll keep an eye on this one.

Gary Carter, an 11-time All-Star, 3-time Gold Glover and World Series winning catcher, has passed away due to complications from four malignant brain tumors on February 16th, 2012. He is survived by his wife Sandy Carter, his daughters Kimmy and Christy, his son DJ and many grandchildren.
Though he played for 19 years with the New York Mets, Montreal Expos, San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers - he is perhaps most well known for his game-winning single against the Houston Astros while playing for the Mets in the 1986 NLCS. Those Mets would go on to defeat the Boston Red Sox for his first and only World Series title. Though he wanted to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both an Expo and a Met, the Hall makes that call and chose to make Gary the Expos' first hall of famer.
Gary Carter was born and raised in Fullerton, California where he attended Sunny Hills High School and played football as a quarterback and baseball as an infielder. It was also in Fullerton that Gary met his future wife Sandy, where she studied at Fullerton College. Gary and Sandy were married in 1975 and had their first child, Kimmy, in October of 1980.

Admittedy, we don't have much. We know that Shaun Marcum and his wife Stephanie Marcum have two children, sons Landon, born in August of 2009 and Ryne born in January of 2008. Ryne, pictured to the right, was named after Shaun's favorite player, Cubs HOFer Ryne Sandberg.
Stephanie holds a degree and works in teaching nutrition. Shaun credits her help with his eating habits in his ability to finally focus mentally to get ready to rehab his injured elbow. In an interview with the Toronto Star, Shaun explained her help with his nutrition: "She has pretty in-depth knowledge of that stuff, so I didn't eat junk food, I didn't eat out so much."
