A change of scenery is sometimes just the right thing.
Now I’m sure you’ve heard the whole Adriana Lima fiasco. It wasn’t Harvey’s best look, but I’m also pretty sure that most of you don’t know what it’s like to break up with a supermodel either.
So why would Chicago be better for Harvey? The media here is tough, but it’s nowhere near New York. Harvey wouldn’t have to worry about being a part of any other section in the newspaper besides the sports section.
Harvey would also be coming into a very close-knit clubhouse, which doesn’t seem to be the case in New York. He wouldn’t have as much pressure on him as he does now, being a top-of-the-rotation pitcher.
The 28-year-old righty would presumably slide into the #4 or 5 slot in the Cubs’ rotation, until Hendricks is re-activated. Then the Cubs would either stick with a six-man rotation or move somebody to the bullpen.
If Harvey can get out of the poisonous atmosphere that is the New York Mets right now, it could be just the right thing for him.
