Matt Harvey out for the rest of the year

Orioles Manager Brandon Hyde shared that Matt Harvey is out for the year with a knee thingamajig.

As I have said in previous posts, as the world’s foremost Matt Harvey expert I can tell you his was better than his numbers and he is definitely a useful back end of the rotation starter.  He took every turn until now and I believe was leading the Orioles in innings.  Long time Mets Police readers know my philosophy on 5th starters is I don’t care if you win or not, I just need you to eat innings.

Matt had a few 5+ starts in the middle of the season.  The trick is that he needs a manager who can see the meltdowns coming.

I wouldn’t start him in a game I cared about, but if you are the 2022 Orioles coming off a 110 loss season, he’s probably not the worst choice for a 5 starter on the cheap.  Someone has to pitch those innings, and the relationship was good for Matt, good for the Orioles, and good for bloggers who live in the eastern time zone.

Have a good off-season Matt!

 

 

Matt Harvey to IL. Season over? (Probably) Career over? (Probably not)

Oh no, Matt Harvey is being parked on the IL so we can look at some other players totally injured!

He’s a Major League pitcher, I bet his knee is always kinda inflamed. But sometimes you just want to look at other players.

Matt wasn’t great, but he showed enough that someone will give him a job in 2022. I look forward to seeing him again next year.

He’s thrown over 100 more innings than last year’s 11 and change….and 10 days takes to September 19th so I don’t see any reason to run him out there agin.

Go enjoy the spoils of war Mets. See ya next year.
