The Mets starting rotation couldn't afford anymore losses, then today Sandy Alderson announces Matt Harvey will miss his start. Not because of injury, but by suspension, from the team no less. I don't know what happened, besides for the obvious fact that Harvey did something stupid, although it must've been pretty bad for the Mets to suspend him with the starting rotation being in shambles already. It's just one start it'd be no big deal usually, however it's a much deeper rooted issue with Harvey.
Matt Harvey is a diva, I think everybody already knew that, though. Diva's do diva things, for instance put themselves before the team and end up getting suspended for it. Whatever it is that he did, and it's nothing dildo related, it must be a major concern to management that they felt the need to punish him for it this drastically. Hopefully, Harvey learned his lesson and can move forward from this and return to being the dark knight that we all knew and loved. Unfortunately, I believe the dark knight days might be behind Matt Harvey. The fact he's getting suspended for some bullshit proves to me that he doesn't care as much about his craft as he should if he wants to be an ace.
Just look at the numbers, ever since the Mets went to the World Series and Harvey pitched that gem, he just hasn't been the same. His numbers were terrible to start last season, maybe it was just the injury, although he's healthy this year and struggling even more. The problem with Harvey runs deeper than what is showing on the surface, something isn't right with him, and it's only a matter of time before it comes out. Then, we'll get some real answers for the dark knight's demise.
