Linking Tom Seaver to Matt Harvey on All-Star Tuesday

Linking Tom Seaver to Matt Harvey on All-Star Tuesday

Hyped by on July 17, 2013 Website: doublegsports.com

It’s been a nice sidebar story to see Dwight Gooden take such an active interest in Matt Harvey’s burgeoning Mets career, taking a seat behind home plate at Citi Field for many of Harvey’s home starts, Tweeting comments about Harvey’s performances and freely giving interviews on the subject of the Mets star sophomore.

But the cynic in some can’t help but wonder about the coincidence of Gooden perhaps hitching his wagon to Harvey’s star at right around the same time that Dwight Gooden is about to have a book on his rocky life in and out of baseball published.

At Tuesday’s All-Star Game, the Mets’ one true and undisputed, “unshared” Hall of Famer, Tom Seaver, threw out the first pitch. And, in so many ways, Matt Harvey recalls the best of Tom Seaver.
