Matt Harvey Struggles Again, Hears It From Mets Fans and the Internet (Video + Tweets)
Matt Harvey‘s horrific 2016 season reached a new low on Thursday night when the Mets’ righty allowed 8 hits, 2 walks and 9 runs (6 earned) over just 2.2 innings during a 9-1 loss to the Washington Nationals.
That performance ballooned Harvey’s ERA to an ugly 5.77 and his WHIP jumped to 1.66. He’s now a disappointing 3-6 on the season.
Apparently that ain’t gonna fly with Mets fans, who booed Harvey as he exited the game at Citi Field:

As for those who couldn’t be there to let Harvey have it in person, they took to Twitter to share their thoughts and feelings:
Matt Harvey is like that version of The Dark Knight when he was trapped in Bane’s prison with a herniated disc and couldn’t really stand.

Matt Harvey is literally Rick Vaughn from Major League. Right now he’s in Major League 2. He needs to put his Wild Thing glasses back on
