Ken Harvey ruled so hard for me in this one video game. I think it was MVP 2005 Baseball.

Harvey always looked like a good hitter against the Sox. For the price, this isn't a horrible move. Heck, he's Ted Williams when compared with Lecroy.

I still play that game and Ken Harvey is like Frank Thomas of the 90s in it. I think the Yankees picked him up in my dynasty mode. Also, Uribe is amazing in it- he's a speedy, power hitting, vacuum.

Looks to be an improvement for the twins if this guy stays healthy. Back problems and baseball don't mix well.

I live in KC and saw Harvey a lot. He was one of the nicest guys you could ever hope to be around...like Floyd Honeybear Rayford.

VERY unorthodox swing, but he's can be the streakiest hot hitter you'll ever see.

Natural line-drive hitter, as long as he keeps his weight down, he could/should be more effective than Rondell White.

He's like a chubby Ross Gload, lol, in terms of what you expect, maybe a little more pop.

Wonder where that leaves Tyner/Kubel in terms of PT next year? Did they let Stewart and R. White both walk?

They can always bring back Batista.

At first, I was confused and thought they had signed Mike Harkey because I had no memory of Harvey in the ASG.

LOL.

You were bothered by that? I was bothered by the absolute sham that the headline made of grammar.

No that was still a joke but I was just laughing at the fact that they made sure to make note of his All-Star game apperance. The year which ended with an MVP-like .287/13/55
