Harvey was out at a big celeb gathering last Thursday night and according to one witness, he was “stumbling around” and “had to sit down at one point.” Another guest contradicted that, claiming Harvey was actually sober. He had come up from San Diego for the event after the Mets flew in after playing the St. Louis Cardinals earlier in the day.
The next night, Harvey had a shaky appearance against the Padres out of the bullpen, allowing a home run to rookie Franchy Cordero.
Alderson was not impressed, but he wasn’t surprised. Here’s what he had to say about it:
Wow. That’s as damming a statement as you’ll hear from a general manager. It’s clear the Mets are fed up with Harvey.
