Matt Harvey was always supposed to be good, just not this good. Sure, he was a first round pick, but he was only the 38th best prospect to enter the league this season. And while he was solid in AAA last year, going 7-5 with a 3.50 ERA and 9.2 K/9, nothing said he would be 4-0 with a 1.28 ERA through 7 starts, leading the league in WHIP, H/9 (at an absurd 4.0), while upping his strikeouts and cutting his walks.
But he tipped his hand last night. Against the White Sox, Harvey went 9 innings, walking none, striking out 12, and giving up one measly hit to Alex Rios before exiting with a no decision, one piece of luck away from a perfect game. However, while pitching, Harvey developed a bloody nose. Seen here:
Now, you may think it was just some dried blood vessels that decided to act up, but that’s just what the government wants you to think. No, the truth is far more sinister.
I’ve seen enough X-Files to know that a bloody nose is a sign that there is an alien chip implanted inside. Proof below:
And while everyone has been up in arms over the use of steroids in the last decade, no one has been asking about the proliferation of alien technology within the game. How else can you explain Bryce Harper’s speed, power, and defense? Or all six of Yu Darvish’s twirling pitches? They clearly are not purely products of just this Earth.
I promise you, sometime in the next three years, you will find a ballplayer with black oil eyes and we’ll have to choose. Do we sit back and enjoy his 103 mph fastball and hammer curve or do we jam a needle into the back of his neck, destroying him? Fight The Future.
I didn’t make that post, and I hope I’m not putting words in Greg’s mouth but it seemed to me like a joke using social commentary. Personally, I believe that Teo, Geno, and Barkley were the most overrated players in the draft. However, now that they didn’t go in the first round, are they still overrated? Maybe overhyped, but that’s the media’s fault, not the scouts.
