Is poor Game 1 start a sign Mets' Matt Harvey has hit a wall in World Series?

The outing itself was fine, all things considered. Matt Harvey allowed three runs in six innings in the Mets' Game 1 loss to the Royals to open the World Series. It's no reason for alarm. But a further examination reveals that Harvey was struggling immensely. His fastball velocity was two miles below his average for the season as he sat at 94 mph. (NJ.com)

Matt Harvey is so-so in opener

Game 1 of the World Series began with Matt Harvey throwing a typical, 95-mph, get-me-over fastball. Not much different than any other start in April or August. But what happened after that was hardly ordinary, and for Harvey, probably twice as frustrating than if Alcides Escobar had just deposited the pitch into one of Kauffman Stadium's waterfalls.

Since Kindergarten, Matt Harvey Knew He'd Be Pitching In The World Series

Two decades ago, the kindergarten students in Mike Porter's physical education class at S.B. Butler Elementary School gathered before class. Some formed circles, some stretched, some chased butterflies. Out of the corner of his eye, Porter saw one boy by himself. Matt Harvey was mimicking a baseball player. "Acting like he was on the mound, doing his mechanics of pitching, swinging a bat," Porter said. "He was always doing that." (Hartford Courant)

It sure didn't take long for Matt Harvey to redeem himself

The Matt Harvey Redemption Tour continues tonight at Kauffman Stadium, where the Mets will hand him the baseball for Game 1 of the World Series. Terry Collins won't be in any hurry to take it back, either. "He won't throw 150 pitches, if that's what you're thinking," Collins said. That's not really what we had in mind, Terry. But now that the manager mentioned it, with the Mets going deep into October, the Harvey Rules certainly have changed. (Newsday)

What to do with Dustin Ackley?

Another Yankees player with an uncertain role for next season is a former elite prospect who the Yankees acquired for a pair of relatively redundant prospects who likely had no role to play next season anyway.
