Mets Tease Their Fans With Harvey Info

Well, Matt Harvey did meet with Dr. James Andrews yesterday. He did receive his second opinion. He also reported back to the Mets in New York. What he didn't do was make a decision on surgery..apparently.

In a very odd twist that could only come from the team's public relations gurus (who couldn't find their way out of a paper bag I might add), the Mets used their twitter account to disseminate all of the   information I mentioned above. They then promptly teased the results, as if going to a commercial break on the radio. 

It was equally amazing and frustrating. As though it was nothing more than the upcoming weather report on the late night news. Bear in mind, I take no issue with Harvey taking an extra day to discuss the results with whomever he deems necessary. I just don't understand why the team would tease the fan base with said information, like a carrot in front of a donkey in an old childhood cartoon.

It's not as if the day Harvey was injured wasn't the single most deflating day in recent memory. Not like we haven't been awaiting closure like a high school girl after a bad break up.  What it is, is another terrific example of the organization floundering through the season seemingly asleep at the wheel once again. 

Same ol' Effing Mets...
