The Mets were supposed to be a doormat this season, saved from last place only by the lowly AAAA Miami Marlins. But the Mets are off to a respectable 8-7 part, thanks in large part to Harvey, who has only allowed 3 runs in 29 innings. Harvey has 4 of the Mets’ 8 wins.
But the Mets have very little talent. It’s hard to imagine them finishing with a winning record. If Harvey continues to dominate, will his season resemble Steve Carlton‘s 1972 oddity? In 1972, Carlton earned 27 of the last-place Phillies‘ 59 wins.
Great pitcher, bad team. Now let’s take 2 out of 3. Seriously, guys.
