Mets pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to Spring Training in 3 days, but that didn’t stop Matt Harvey from arriving early in what could be considered another flagrant violation of team rules. Just another example of his infamous narcissism that has dominated the New York backpages since his arrival on the big league club. No doubt there will be a thorough investigation into what led up to his early arrival and his actual motives for disregarding the team mandated report date.
Once the media was able to get over Harvey’s arrival, they sat down with him for an interview during which the reporters asked him about his views on the possible existence of contract extensions in the sport today. Matt said,
“I think whatever comes up is going to come up. I’ve never shied away from it, I’ve never said I wouldn’t consider it. But I haven’t heard anything considering that.”
Wow. So Matt actually acknowledged that contract extensions exist. This is unprecedented. His agent Scott Boras is a known contract extension truther so this really contradicts his well documented skepticism on the subject.
When the topic switched to the particularly humid day in Port St. Lucie Florida, Matt had the following to say on global warming,
“The idea that man, through the production of CO2 — which is a trace gas in the atmosphere, and the man-made part of that trace gas is itself a trace gas — is somehow responsible for climate change is, I think, just patently absurd when you consider all the other factors.”
The interview closed with a question about the potential evolution of the Mets pitching staff in 2016 and a clear misunderstanding on the part of Harvey when he responded,
“There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.”
