The controversy over Matt Harvey’s innings limit turned out to be a lot of nothing: the Mets merely skipped Harvey’s starts and gave him shorter outings, and he’s off the leash for however long this playoff run lasts. But that doesn’t change the fact that Harvey’s already thrown 23 more innings than his previous…
Matt Harvey will pitch for the Mets in an expected playoff run, according to an essay published under the hurler’s name at Player’s Tribune.
It’s as if some higher power looked at the NL East standings, noticed the Mets’ six-game lead on the Nationals, said, “Things can’t possibly be going this perfectly for the goddamn Mets!” and then put CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman on the phone with Scott Boras and Mets GM Sandy Alderson.
When the Miami Marlins sent Marcell Ozuna to the minors on July 5, there was more in play than just giving the slumping third-year outfielder a chance “to get his rhythm back,” as Ozuna’s agent Scott Boras said he was told.

Major League Baseball is merciful enough to not force its annual three-day draft onto us in the form of a television package deal with weeping grandmothers and incarcerated fathers. For that, we are grateful. But we'll admit that it would have made for great television to see Scott Boras react to Bud Selig's old club…
You don't need college sports to have agents currying the favor of amateurs with a nice cash payment. Now up: Scott Boras's company, which has allegedly been providing loans and payments to top Dominican prospects.
