"Harvey has a chance to pull Mets fans into the organization’s time tunnel – back to 1984 when Doc Gooden introduced himself to the world with a blow-away fifth inning in that year’s All-Star Game. 

Gooden struck out Lance Parrish, Chet Lemon and Alvin Davis with a fastball that might as well have been shot out of a rifle – that’s how overmatched the American League’s sluggers were. Gooden, only 19, was the advertisement of the gathering storm in Flushing, which is why the parallel to Harvey is so striking, even though he’s five years older.” - Bob Klapisch, The Record
