They should be. Their best starting pitcher is a morbidly obese 44-year-old.

That’s a list of eight. And some of those are legitimate prospects and talents. Eight in over a decade isn’t exactly top-of-the-line.

Who has been “top-of-the-line” over the same time period?

This would be my chief concern in bringing in Harvey. On the surface, the Sox have very little to lose giving him a shot considering the craters in their rotation. However, I'd be a bit hesitant to bring a bad influence or clubhouse cancer into such a young impressionable clubhouse. Harvey had a ton of issues in NY and he has a reputation of being a party guy even on nights before starts. Giolito is here, Lopez is here, Kopech is on his way...I'd hate for them to pick up any bad habits from a guy like Harvey.

I'll never forget the game he pitched against the White Sox in 2013. He was dominating that night.

Saw a tweet today that listed the Sox as one of a half dozen clubs that have expressed interest in him.

The Mets need a catcher with Travis d’Arnaud gone for the season.
