Big Apple vs Motown: @MattHarvey33 and Max Scherzer ready to go. #ASG
Should be a stellar matchup between two of the year’s best hurlers, but when a pitcher like Harvey can go 1-2-3, 98-98-100 mph at will against opposing hitters, the edge here is clear, inexperience be damned.
This’ll be the biggest night of the year for Mets fans, with the possibility of a highly memorable Pedro-in-Fenway moment if Harvey does well. 8 p.m. tomorrow night on Fox: be there.
