From a standpoint of managing Harvey's injured wing this means nothing, but it does leave some egg on the face of the organization. First there were miscommunications about him experiencing pain, and now this? How the team could not be on top of this situation is unbelievably frustrating...
Whether or not Alderson's front office is good at evaluating talent can be debated. What can't be debated is its seeming inability to maintain lines of communication with its best players. Think Jose Reyes prior to his departure... I know it takes two to tango, and Boras probably should have called the Mets before he called the press, but that doesn't make the team look any better.
With the goal being surgery before December 1st, Harvey will be on schedule to start the 2015 season healthy. Now he just has to navigate a career threatening surgery and a years worth of rehab. After all, this is the Mets... What could possibly go wrong?
