6/13 Cheering, Venting, & I Think I Might Sit Harvey?!?!?!

Postby bigh0rt » Thu Jun 13, 2013 9:13 am

Okay, so maybe it's the 8-ball of crack I smoked this morning, or maybe not, but am I a lunatic for considering sitting Matt Harvey today vs the Cardinals (Wainwright)? Dillon Gee handled the Carbs with relative ease yesterday, and while Harvey is a mega-change of pace from Gee, which could be very beneficial, the Mets are very unlikely to get to Wainwright much, and Harvey's been suffering from a back strain that has Vodka Collins saying he'll start today, but may miss his next start in the doubleheader against Atlanta next week. I dunno about you, but that's a red flag to me. Are they gonna trot him out and yank him after 2 innings cause his back doesn't feel 100%? Can I risk one of my 10 allotted starts for the week on that? There hasn't been any new news (maybe that's a good thing?) about how his back is; just that he visited a chiropractor, and is 'fine'. Then why the walk of possibly bumping his subsequent start? Not that the Mets haven't already put their foot in their mouths once this week or anything... If I sit Harvey, I would fill his spot in the rotation for the week either with Corey Kluber vsWSH or Gerrit Cole vsLAD (right now my other 4 remaining starts project to be Cliff Lee @MIN, Anibal Sanchez @MIN, Matt Moore vsKC, and Julio Teheran vsSF). I'm not comfortable trotting out Jose Fernandez vsSTL or Ricky Nolasco vsSTL, so really it comes down to Harvey or one of Kluber/Cole (I'm loving Kluber, FWIW). Also, the Mets are considerable underdogs, and Wins are one thing (along with QS) that I'm hunting for in a Points League. Do I play it safe, or throw the best pitcher in the National League out there less than 100% against the best offense in the NL? Halp!

WHIR?

You can't handle El Derecho. Matt Harvey would throw a no hitter in a Hurricane.

I did. Love the performance. Hate that the Mets are going to saddle him with a Loss when he pitched so well again. Gotta be infuriating.

Musta been a dang fine game to watch as well as both pitchers pitched. Practically identical and dominant lines.
