If there's a source who can talk about pitching through an injury, it's Roy Halladay.  The Philadelphia Phillies ace and two-time Cy Young Award winner has pitched through more than his fair share of injuries.  He succumbed to one this season that couldn't be pitched through, but Halladay is a wealth of knowledge on what it takes to pitch through an injury.  That's why Matt Harvey consulted him. Anthony DiComo of MLB.com says Harvey spoke with Halladay after New York Mets manager Terry Collins asked the veteran pitcher to sit down with the youngster.  Harvey would not reveal what the two discussed, but it was not long after that conversation that Harvey tweeted out his proclamation that he would be ready for Opening Day. Harvey will wait a few weeks then have a consultation regarding his options going forward.  It still seems as if surgery is the likely outcome, but it's not always necessary.  Adam Wainwright pitched with a partially torn UCL for seven year before he eventually completely tore the ligament and had to have Tommy John surgery.  Harvey and the Mets will have to weight the risk against the reward of not having the surgery now. Harvey had a fantastic season, and he has sparked the hopes of the Mets' faithful.  If he were to be healthy for next season, the team would have a real shot at being competitive.  Of course, the same can be true for 2015, and it would give the Mets another year to reload.  It will be a tough decision for Harvey and the Mets.  However, the longer it's postponed, the longer the road to recovery will take if he does undergo Tommy John surgery.
