These Harvey posts are regularly the most popular thing on the site. I guess it’s like looking at your ex-girlfriend’s Facebook page. What are you hoping to see here? Are you hoping that Matt looks hot, or maybe that he put on weight, or maybe you just want to think about that sexy night in Kansas City. Who knows what you really want, but you’re here, and it’s Harvey Day bitches.
I went in the pool and forgot that home teams pitch first so I was a few minutes late to the game. Somehow some Cubs guy got on second.
How did he get there? Let’s face it, neither of us really care. The important thing is Matt got out of the inning.
OK I am lying, I asked. It’s like asking if her new boyfriend is a dweeb
Thanks random Cubs fan guy on twitter!
The second didn’t start so well for Rip Tide. He walked the leadoff hitter. Would he start giving up massive bombs?
Nope! Matt got out of it yet again. He had to be thinking about the cute waitress at the Waffle House, maybe he can stop by after the game….
…and the Waffle House is open 24 hours! I hope for Matt’s sake that Jenny is working tonight.
Matt even had his own Heat Towel Squeegee Guy to keep him cool!
What’s even going on? I have watched a lot of baseball these last 40+ years. I don’t recall seeing a man towel another man’s head.
Anyway then Mrs. Mets Police came out to the deck and started talking. “Hey I am blogging about Reds pitcher Matt Harvey” is a stupid fight to pick, so there were some hits or walks or something but I did notice the double down the line.
Then more talking and a has batsman. Could this be it for our hero? No. He got the Cubs to ground into a double play! And yet he looked sad, but at least I got a Featured Image for my blog post.
Jenny at Waffle House is not answering his ‘sup texts.
The 4th was a no-event 1-2-3.
To start the 5th, Matt gave up a lead off hitter to the pitcher! This left Matt looking focused.
Then my job called me and I got distracted. I see MH didn’t give up any runs and then when I snapped-to he was batting and promptly bunted into a double play. Fortunately the Reds TV guys posted this graphic to catch us all up…
And we were into the 6th. Hey we make a lot of fun of Matt but not too many Mets pitchers get into the 6th, he’d kind of be the Mets 2nd starter right now. This ain’t a great performance, but it ain’t horrible.
Matt was hitting 97 in the 6th! The Reds Guys said he hadn’t done that since last May.
Matt was pitching so well that even the advertisers knew what Matt was thinking….
6 innings, 2 runs. I don’t know if The Dark Knight has Returned but these Havey starts have been a lot better than Vargas Day. Might Sandy have made a bad call yet again? (Or am I being revisionist because Matt really did need a change of scenery.)
Atta boy Matt. Text Jenny again, she might just text back.
Harvey Days will not be seen next week as I will be traveling – unless Niko The Intern who is covering for me decides to do it, which would be crazy. Inspired but crazy.
