I can live with Matt Harvey at 95. I graduated in ’95, so maybe that’s why it doesn’t bother me that he’s lost a few ticks on the fastball. I can live with secondary pitches leading missing bats, pitching to contact and pitching into the 7th. I can live with a clean-shaven Matt Harvey, looking svelte and in command. with all of this. Do I wish we had 2013 Matt at the top of this rotation? Sure. Is 2017 Harvey a viable alternative? So far so good.
What I can’t live with is the blue softball tops at home. Knock it off, Mets.
