HBT Extra: The Columbus Mad Cows, the best three baseball books and movies and much, much more

I took Twitter questions. Four of them are more or less about baseball.  One was about baseball books and movies. Yes, there were visual aids. And the third book I mentioned was given to me by Old Gator a couple of years ago and is highly recommended to all of you.

The Angels have signed pitcher Matt Harvey to a one-year contract, MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports. Fancred’s Jon Heyman reports that the contract is for $11 million with an additional $3 million available through performance incentives.

Harvey, 29, spent 2018 with the Mets and Reds, posting an aggregate 4.94 ERA with a 131/37 K/BB ratio in 155 innings. He started off poorly with the Mets, so they traded him to the Reds in early May. He pitched much better in Cincinnati.

Harvey should have a spot secured at the back of the Angels’ rotation, but health and performance can always change that leading up to Opening Day.
