Colorado Rockies 1976 Posted February 16, 2016 Share Posted February 16, 2016 Pitchers and catchers report...here we go again! Matt Harvey said that he hasn't been approached about a long-term extension by the Mets, but wouldn't be opposed to signing one. As everyone does with spring training (too much downtime and only so much to report), it's easy to try to read too much into quotes...but Matt isn't kidding anyone. I'd be stunned if he signed one of those "bridge" deals for 4 or 5 years for $60-$80 million...Boras would never let that happen. Sure, Harvey's not opposed to signing the kind of deal here that he expects to get on the free agent market after 2018...8+ years and $200+ million. Nothing against Harvey on this one, but it will be unfair if some of the more hysterical Met fans start making this sound like Sandy somehow isn't being proactive with him. Sandy probably knows that offering Boras and Matt a bridge-type deal is a waste of everyone's time, and he has no reason to offer Matt the farm at this point.
