NY Post- Matt Harvey unleashed 25 pitches in batting practice on Monday, displaying a curveball he had abandoned in recent years, and focus immediately turned to the Mets’ exhibition home opener on Friday.

The Mets ace is scheduled to take the mound for 35-40 pitches over two innings against the Tigers in what will mark Harvey’s return to competitive action, just over 16 months removed from Tommy John surgery.

 

Oh…my…lanta.  So Matt Harvey was the best pitcher in baseball in 2013 despite barely using his curveball?  That is insane.  I honestly don’t even know what to expect from Harvey this season.  Super-competitive, super-talented, and getting better?  Yikes.  That would be like giving John McClane a bazooka instead of a handgun in Die Hard.

Luckily I have special metrics and a state-of-the-art statistics machine to help me translate what Harvey’s stats will be this season armed with good health and a nasty curveball.

Here are Harvey’s 2013 “Awesome but with an arm injury and not much of a curveball” stats.

I will now place them into the machine……

Ladies and gentlemen, here are your 2015 Matt Harvey numbers.

I am kind of surprised at the numbers.  For one, I was thinking that he would have a few saves or holds this season.  He is the Dark Knight and I am sure the Mets will need some saving during the season.  Secondly, K/9 should not be infinity.  It should be 27.00.  But I guess Healthy Matt Harvey With A Curveball broke my revolutionary machine.  Time to go back to the drawing board with Doc Brown.  #jiggawatts
