Reactions to the Matt Harvey signingAndy Marlin-USA TODAY SportsThe Angels sent shockwaves ripples through the league yesterday with the signing of Matt Harvey - former Dark Knight of Gotham City. I had originally intended to dive into his 2018 performance which had pretty mixed result depending on who you listen to. I DID find a stretch of 16 games from June 15th to September 14th last year in which Harvey had a 3.81 ERA with 76 Ks over 81.1 innings. Harvey is certainly no ace, and maybe not even top of the rotation anymore, but depending on who you listen to, the Angels either got a decent deal or were completely duped by agent Scott Boras.The Angels love a good reclamation project, and Matt Harvey joins a long list of others, most of whom have not really worked out for more than a few months or a season.Apparently , one argument for Harvey is that he doesn’t suck as bad as other options. Comforting, right?Maybe we can make room for one of the other guys on this list. They were all good once and are not anymore. More reclamation projects!I have mixed feelings about this. Both comes with risk, but Harvey has potentially more upside. Too bad we had to spend 11-14 million to find out though.So a Mets writer forgot about Harvey and we gave him a nice payday. That’s cool.Matt Harvey has never pitched in the AL and he will now have to face a DH every 9 hitters instead of a pitcher.He’s only pitched in one AL West ballpark (Minute Maid), but maybe the change of scenery will be good for him?So much for the Angels not dealing with Scott Boras.And of course, Harvey’s off-the-field “leisure” activities have been sometimes notorious.But you know what? Not everyone thinks the Matt Harvey signing is a bad idea, and many fans of the Mets and Reds are hopeful/wishful for his success as an Angel.I’ll leave you with a fun video Harvey did while he was on the Mets - and before most people knew who he was. (Thanks Chris K for the tip!) NEW YORK — The New York Yankees are inching closer toward clinching a wild-card spot for the second straight season. They also want to be the home team for the one-game playoff while giving certain players some rest.With those things in mind, the Yankees continue a three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.“Our guys know what time it is,” Yankees GM Brian Cashman said. “Not that they’ve ever slacked off or cut back. We know all eyes are on us — always — and at the end of the day Bartolo Colon Jersey , it’s postseason baseball in front of us and we’ve got to secure that first and foremost, and we want to host the wild-card game if at all possible.”Article continues below ...The Yankees (94-59) enter with a magic number of two to clinch their second straight wild-card spot. They hold a 1 1/2-game lead over Oakland (93-61) for home field.“We want to play here. We feel like we have a home-field advantage, but I also don’t want to get caught up in driving that home so much,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “We feel like we can beat anybody, anyplace.”Mindful of keeping players rested for the wild-card game, the Yankees opened the series by holding on for a 10-8 victory on a night when Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez and Miguel Andujar rested. Didi Gregorius and Aaron Hicks homered and Aaron Judge contributed an RBI double in his fourth game back in the starting lineup from a fractured right wrist.“Just trying to be wise here down the stretch,” Boone said. “Obviously Jon Niese Jersey , these games are really important and now that we’re whole we feel like we have really good options every day to keep guys in the fold.”The Yankees will be looking to add to the major league home run total as well. They are up to 249 — and 14 games from the major league record set by the Seattle Mariners in 1997.The Orioles (44-109) own 15 losses in their last 19 games after dropping their fifth straight to the Yankees. They nearly erased deficits of 6-0 and 9-4 by getting homers from rookies Austin Wynns, Renato Nunez and DJ Stewart but were done in by allowing at least 10 runs for the 20th time this year.“A lot of young players did some good things, but it’s just the pitching is not quite, I don’t know if you want to say mature enough,” Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. “We did some good things, but we can’t put together a lot of sequences.”Chris Davis went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts and is hitless in his last 16 at-bats. He is batting .170 with 189 strikeouts.“He can’t string it together consistently,” Showalter said. “It’s been a challenge for him most of the season.”The Orioles are two losses from matching the franchise record set by the 1939 St. Louis Browns, who finished 64 1/2 games out of first place. They are playing the rest of the season against the Yankees Edinson Volquez Jersey , Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros.After getting six solid innings from CC Sabathia on Friday, Lance Lynn makes his ninth start and 10th appearance with the Yankees. He last pitched in Sunday’s 3-2 loss to Toronto when he allowed one run and three hits in five innings.Lynn is 2-1 with a 4.37 ERA in five career appearances (three starts) against the Orioles.David Hess, making his 18th start and 20th appearance for the Orioles, owns a 5.20 ERA. Since getting his last win on Aug. 27 vs. Toronto, Hess is 0-2 with a 6.08 ERA.Hess last pitched in an 8-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday when he allowed four runs and six hits in 4 1/3 innings.Hess is facing the Yankees for the first time.
