Clearly, Bob did not see the Qualcomm interview...With Sandy Alderson finally throwing gas on his hot stove with the signings of Curtis Granderson and Bartolo Colon , it’s time for suits at the TV home of the Mets to make a move too.And that would be involving Matt Harvey in some of SportsNet New York’s Mets telecasts, whether it be in the booth or studio. Naturally this all will be predicated on whether Harvey, coming off Tommy John surgery, would be inclined to go behind the microphone...If Harvey has the time, what better way for the Mets organization to keep him connected with the fan base than allowing SNY suits to put him on the air. We are not talking a major schedule here. Maybe a few games or studio appearances during the regular season.

Now to be fair this is all the rambling of a newspaper columnist, not Harvey. But if he wants to stay in touch, I'd love to see him travel with the team frequently and spend time with the other pitchers. Joining the broadcast booth seems ill-advised.
