Harvey says he's tired
Good thing he'll never pitch for a team that will need him in the second half.
Of course he's tired. Every starter who has been pitching since April is tired after the All-Star break. League pitching splits over the years tend to reflect weaker pitching in August.
Quality starters don't shut down in August to protect their stats. They pitch through it and get their second win in September. Quality starters don't shut down late in the season to protect their stats.
