You never really want to see a kid you hope will become a future Ace get shellacked like Matt Harvey did yesterday but BMF is gonna look at the bright side.
An embarrassing outing every now and again can keep you humble. And while an ace needs confidence some lessons in humility on the way up can be very beneficial in the long run.
There is no way Sunday’s line of 7H, 5R, 0BB, 1K in 1 IP is an accurate gauge on who Matt Harvey is. The kid was obviously over hyped to show what he’s got going against Strasberg.
Meanwhile Lucas Duda and Ike Davis just may be the next. cornerstones of the Mets. 2 young sluggers that can pound teams into submission.
I’m more excited to watch these guys get after it in Flushing than any other aspect of the team.
I’m also getting bored with Spring Training…
Ready for real baseball…
