So what is it, really, that you dont like about him?
His inability to throw strikes, bad offenses flail away and get themselves out for him but when he faces a good offense I think he is going to really struggle. He is a good pitcher regardless but the question is, is he a legit ace and my answer is no until I see him play a good offense. I also don't expect the Nats to continue to struggle. Harvey has managed to face teams that were struggling at the time 7 starts in a row. It is just hard for me to judge just how good he is when everything has been so favorable for him so far.
I already addressed this but you conveniently left that part of the quote out. HE IS RARELY GOING TO FACE GOOD OFFENSES so why do you worry so much about that?
the only legimate concern i could see would be if the Mets say he is on a strict innings limit and will get shut down. so far that hasnt been mentioned at all
