Matt Harvey was at Citi Field on Monday where he worked out and spent some time throwing long-toss. Afterward he spoke to a group of beat writers about the upcoming season. The Mets’ young righthander does not want to be placed on any innings limit this season and wasn’t happy about having his season cut short last year. Harvey also made his intentions quite clear and said he is determined to be the next ace of the rotation.
“I’m here to win,” Harvey said emphatically. “I don’t make those decisions on who’s the ace, who’s not the ace. That’s where I want to be, that’s my determination. In the long run, that’s where I want to be.
“Every time I take the mound, I don’t want to lose. I don’t think I’m going to lose at all. I take the mound fighting for every single pitch. I take anger to the mound, I take a lot of aggression. That’s the fight that I have to win.’
I love this kid. He has that swagger I wish more of our players had.
