I’m officially in 2014 mode, what about you? Actually, I have been for some time now, but the Matt Harvey news and the purge that followed clinched it for me.
Speaking of Harvey, God bless that poor kid. After the news broke about his torn UCL, my heart went out to him and I tweeted him the following:
@MattHarvey33 Thanks for all the hope & optimism you've given Mets fans. Thanks for all the thrills too. Get well, get back, and God Bless.

Matt Harvey responded to the overwhelming outpouring of prayers and hope with the following:
Thank you everyone for the kind words and support. I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for April 1.

I responded back to him with yet more optimism and also a warning:
@MattHarvey33 Now that's the Met spirit! Ya Gotta Believe! Stay away from the naysayers & pessimists, stick with those who have your back!
