I absolutely loved seeing this quick write up Adam Rubin did on Matt Harvey. He seems totally locked in on the upcoming season, and I’m glad to hear that. Ever since Matt Harvey debuted last season I have loved his attitude. He seems like a true gamer, and I’m hoping that his winning attitude is something he can bring to the Mets for years to come. He seems like the kind of guy that will be a leader on this team, and I think that is awesome.
Although I’m sure that Harvey understands the position the Mets are in entering the 2013 season, it doesn’t seem like he is buying into the notion that the Mets will not be contenders. Matt was quoted in Rubin’s piece saying, “I’m here to win this year. I don’t want to look ahead to the next couple of years. I want to win now. And that’s my job”. What is not to love about this guy? Let’s hope he continues to show us the electric stuff he did late in 2012, and begins to delve deeper into games as the season progresses.
