Pedro Martinez defends Matt Harvey against Mets

Pedro Martinez

Matt Harvey found a friend in the media to defend him in his spat with the Mets over an innings limit, and it was none other than Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez.

Martinez, who pitched for the Mets from 2005-2008 but struggled with injuries during his time with the team, weighed in on the matter via Twitter Tuesday.

That was some good insight from Pedro on how Harvey likely feels. And I know Harvey and Scott Boras are looking out for the pitcher’s long-term health, whereas the team is more focused on its goal of making a World Series run this season. Those two things are in conflict. And while Harvey and Boras would rather see the team lean towards protecting the player, the franchise’s obvious priority is to try winning it all while being cautious with the ace.

The Mets have a chance to really do damage in the postseason, so I have no problem with them trying to get Harvey to contribute within reason in October.
