Mets’ star pitcher Matt Harvey has been suspended three games for violating team rules. GM Sandy Alderson announced the suspension Sunday morning. The Mets have not disclosed the violation.
“Matt Harvey has been suspended for three days without pay for a violation of team rules and has been sent home,” Alderson said.
Harvey was scheduled to start Sunday against the Marlins. Lefty Adam Wilk will start in place of Harvey on Sunday.
Tim Tebow is headed to Columbia, South Carolina to continue his journey to the majors. He will play on the Mets’ low Class-A team the Columbia Fireflies. He will be a draw in Columbia. He is most definitely good for business. Tebow, who has not played baseball since high school, is trying to defy the odds by making it with the Mets.
Baseball is a very hard sport to play. I dare anybody to step into a batter’s box and try to hit a 90 mph fastball! It’s a game where failure is the norm. Where in life is 3 out of 10 considered good?
For Tebow to get this far is an amazing feat. Will he get any farther? I doubt it, but who would have ever thought he would have beaten the Steelers in a playoff game? We can knock Tebow all we want, but you can’t question his heart and determination.
Good luck in Columbia!
