Tied at 1 going into the most crucial game of the series, if not the most crucial in the year for both sides, LA will send Brett Anderson to the hill to face the infamous of late Matt Harvey.
Matt has had his fair share of bad publicity in the New York media over the past few weeks. First off it was his innings count limit that shadowed him pitching in the last bit of the season and now it is him not showing up to a compulsory team workout, a day before the NLDS started. In a year where the Mets have a chance to go forward and actually make some waves and with Matt being rather good at throwing a ball, he should probably think about letting his team have the best chance of winning and not try to make everyone hate him.
His reception into Citi Field will be interesting enough tomorrow night but if he loses or gets hit around the park courtesy of the Dodgers, the crowd may turn and start to not want him on their team for much longer. It is a cutthroat city in New York and if they don’t like you then you don’t have much hope.
