Paper thinks up 7 stunning puns for baseball headline, finds a way to cram in all of them

Here’s hoping that Matt Harvey has a decent sense of humour.

NON-BASEBALL FANS may not be familiar with Mets star Matt Harvey and his bladder infection.

But that shouldn’t stop you from appreciating the pun-tastic wizardry served up by the New York Post to accompany their report on Wednesday.

It emerged yesterday that Harvey’s mystery illness was a infection that had caused a blood clot in his bladder, which cleared up without any major complications.

Good news for Harvey who can start in Sunday’s season-opener against Kansas; good news for Mets fans; and good news for the creative geniuses at the Post who dreamed up seven spectacular headlines.

Rather than leave six of them on the cutting room floor, they managed to wedge them all in to this sensational splash (that one’s ours, and very intentional!)

They’ve got:

  • Urine Luck
  • Whiz Kid!
  • Now He’s A Reliever!
  • Swing & A Piss
  • Field of Streams
  • Piss & Tell
  • Pee Brain

Take a bow. In fact, take seven.
