Matt Harvey is still undefeated ... in two sports. Harvey, as you know ... and partially thanks to Rick Ankiel's triple on Wednesday, is 5-0 in 2013. Also, he's 7-0 in the stands as a fan of the New York Rangers, with no game being more important than the one the Rangers played on Thursday, a 4-3 overtime victory which saved their season for at least two more days. If played right, Harvey can save two franchises. The one he plays for, and the one he roots for. Hey, if you believe in superstition like most pro athletes do on some level, you have to find a way to get Harvey to Boston for Game 5. He can get his throwing in on the Amtrak. Then for Game 6, which would be on Monday at the Garden, adjust the rotation a bit. Give Harvey some extra rest and pitch him Tuesday. You saw what happened the last time Harvey pitched with extra rest. Then Game 7 on Wednesday. It's for the greater good, Sandy Alderson. This man has the gift, and if played right he could save two franchises! Well, he could save three franchises, if you believe the graphic that FOX Kansas City had up during the Royals game on Thursday: Yup. Little known fact: "Matt Harvey" is just the name he used to obtain his visa. But if they think Matt Jones is good, wait until the rest of the Mets minor league system hits the majors: Zack Underwood, Noah Doty, and Vyacheslav D'Arnaud.
