Harvey says he's tired
Harvey is also in his first full MLB season and until you actually go through a season, most guys don't seem to understand how to condition themselves to survive it. A full MLB season is an ordeal and it takes time getting accustomed to it. Quintana last year fell apart late in the season simply because he was unprepared for the physical toll it takes on your body.

But Sale, and Harvey, will eventually need to learn how to go from April to September. Sale is still 20 IP away from his career high of last season. You can't teach a guy to last a full season without asking him to last a full season.
