Matt Harvey: A-Rod’s return is “exciting, good for baseball”

I am intrigued by Matt Harvey’s ideas and would like to subscribe to his newsletter. From Kevin Kernan’s story at the Post:

“Obviously Alex wants to play, that’s good for him, good for baseball,’’ Harvey told The Post.

“If he is that dedicated and wants to come back then more power to him for going up to the organization like that, it shows a lot. It will be exciting to see what he can do.”

I presume this will lead to a lot of people who like to make villains out of New York sports figures really happy, as they can now bring the ever-stupid demands that so-and-so “denounce” a given person or idea from politics into sports. I mean, Harvey is already on deck to be the next big bad guy in New York because he, I dunno, goes to basketball games and stuff, so it’s not hard to see some columnist cite his A-Rod support as evidence that he “just doesn’t get it” should he struggle at some point this year.

But this also serves as just the latest example of players not thinking Rodriguez is the cartoon villain he is so often made out to be by the media and some easily manipulated sports fans.
