There are probably at least 97 different possibilities for how Hunter Harvey's career will wind up when all is said and done.
I just gave 3 large generalizations, in relation to the subject of the previous post.
I am saying that he is terrible because he has become apathetic. And yes I do believe that, because he appeared to show no effort at all. Remember the famous photo where he’s lazily swinging at the pitch and his eyes are focused somewhere else entirely?
and that happened often enough that it’s not unreasonable to think he’s been phoning it in for three years.
I may be wrong but observable evidence tilts in one direction. And either way, he doesn’t care, and neither do I. Effort or not, he’s one of history’s worst over the last three years and I’m happy he’s leaving.
Considering the fact that he is 25 years-old, yes, I think it is.
He may wind up pitching 2 or 3 more injury-riddled seasons, he may wind up pitching 5 or 6 more seasons with middle-of-the-road health, or he may wind up pitching 9 or 10 more seasons with those early-career injuries well back in the rear-view mirror.
Of those 3 hypothetical situations, I would not be surprised at all if it were the first or the second. I would be at least somewhat surprised if it were the 3rd, but I believe that that supposition is still possible.
