    Is it an automatic that Harvey should be offered arbitration next year?

    I understand he will be further removed from injury and entering a contract year but he's basically been a shell of his former self since 2016. The velocity sucks, the command/control sucks, and he is being hit hard with a ton of regularity. Not to mention he is due for a raise.

    So should we bring him back?

    We need arms so yeah. Worst nightmare is if he figures it out with someone else.No expectations though..

    I'd give Wheeler another shot in the rotation. Harvey I believe is finished as an effective starter.

    Wheeler should still start. Harvey should start the retirement process.

    Not with Scott Boras as his agent. He'll come up with some numbers and and sell the sizzle.

    The way Harvey is pitching there is no sizzle. Its just the drizzling ***** and the drizzling ***** doesn't get paid. I understand Harvey will be motivated but his arm could be betraying him at this point.

    I advocqted trading him this spring because his trade value was going to diminish during the course of the season. BUT at this low point I would keep him under contract because he can probably only get better. Even Ollie Perez bounced back and became serviceable. A one-year deal is worth the risk.

    Plus if they non tender him he will become a FA and sign with the Yankees!!! --- the worst fear of multitudes of Mets fans.

    History will repeat itself.

    The Mets won't offer anything and Harvey will sign with the Gnats and post a 0.9000 WHIP and lead the majors in many pitching categories. His new nickname will become the Fruit Fly of the Beltway and everyone will love him there.

    Meanwhile, Coupon will unleash his couponmetrics and tell us that he predicted Harvey's upcoming success and that the Wilpons are cheap.

    The Gnats will then bomb in the playoffs like they do every year.

    Yes to arbitration.

    It is worth the financial risk to see if he's healthy and can produce when motivated by selfish contract-year interests.

    Don't worry. He's got this.

    That's a fair trade. Crappy player with potential for another crappy player with potential.

    Exactly

    The things you may gain are that he pitches well and helps you in making the playoff.

    Pitches well and team is bad and can be dealt. We need more relievers.

    If he pitches bad, well that's that.

    Not that it will ever happen, but would like it if they tried to make him a reliever.
