I have a question for Boras. Are you serious?
This is freakishly similar to the dilemma faced by another Boras client a few years back--Stephen Strasburg--whose sitting out the playoffs cost the Washington Nationals a chance to make it to the World Series. How did that work out? The Nationals went home early that year, Strasburg has never been nearly as good, and the Nats have drifted further into the abyss with little chance of a championship much less a playoff appearance this season.
Boras should get it through that enormous, ego-driven head of his that the 180 inning pitch limit was a "soft" figure to go by, with doctors, coaches and Harvey himself discussing his condition before, during, and after he reached that figure. That's all.
Boras is everything that's wrong about baseball. The Mets have perhaps a small window to win a World Series this year (should they not bring back Cespedes or Murphy) and they won't win it without Harvey. Yet, all Boras cares about is the money he will lose if Harvey's arm goes bad. Nobody wants to see that happen, of course. But Harvey, nor any of us mere mortals for that matter, can't live our lives in fear that something could go wrong.
People die in car accidents every day. But did that stop me from picking up my kids from school today? Of course not.
Boras should take a deep breath, have a cold adult beverage, enjoy the Labor Day weekend, and leave baseball matters related to Harvey to the Mets.
