Not sure why Harvey in the pen would be any better than Harvey in the rotation


Because it might add a few MPH on his fastball and he might be able to get a few batters out as oppossed to the Mets needing Harvey to get more than a few out as a starter. Personally, since the Mets have a nice cushion, I would give MH a five or six more starts before I even think about moving him to the pen.


I don't think every pitcher adds the extra zip in a bullpen role the way Gsellman has. With Harvey, I think it's more about using the best 5 starters. If Thor, deGrom, Matz, Wheeler and Vargas separate themselves from Harvey then Harvey has to go to the pen by default, or get traded.

I personally don't think the Pen will save Harvey. I think it (might) save Matz.


In all seriousness I wouldn't count on Vargas being all that much better than Harvey. I think after a few starts we are all going to want the soft tossing lefty demoted to the pen or run out of town.

I could see it going either way. Vargas could be a nice surprise or, not. Right now I'd bet on him having a better year than Harvey but I'm basically just guessing.
