There are reports coming out of New York that Matt Harvey is even getting more surly as his New York Mets career continues.
Supposedly, he's had it with the New York beat press, who have one job and one job only... come up with a question that will generate an interesting answer that will help sell newspapers.
The latest was when one of them asked him, after his superb outing against Toronto, if he felt he was at a crisis point in his career. Harvey called it a 'bullshit question', refused to answer it, and ended the gathering right then and there.
Just so all of you know... the Mets can't determine who works at what newspaper, nor can they prevent them from coming into the clubhouse and representing that newspaper. This is a union issue. If you have a union card, you're in the clubhouse.
The Mets have tried to have certain reporters removed in the past (cough... Rubin... cough) and it just doesn't work that way.
What the Mets could do is get a press secretary that is under 100 years old that could control this situation a little better than it's being done right now.
Harvey is a handful and will be a handful until well after he someday becomes a New York Yankee. The New York press need to learn to stay out of the way of this guy.
I'm still having a real hard time with the Mets giving away Dillon Gee's number while, technically, he is still a part of this organization. What a cold friggin move against a guy that busted his ass for parts of six seasons and produced a 40-37 record.
A really un-class move Sandy.
The picture i have here was one I took with Gee's original number. He always was a class act that came from a class act family. Both he and his father always treated me and this web site with respect.
I wish him well and I hope he finds a team that will treat him like the gentleman he is.
Thank you Dillon for your hard work as a member of the New York Mets. I look forward to you coming back and beating the hell out of them on the mound.
Folks, there's going to close to a two year period between starts and that's if everything goes okay here. Trust me, think conservative here and pencil him for opening day 2017. Anything earlier will be bonus time.
