Going into the 2015 season, it was pretty much a question mark for Harvey and the Mets.

Missing the entire 2014 season due to Tommy John Surgery, we didn’t know what to expect both psychically and mentally. But for the most part, he led a young pitching staff for most of it and pitched well.

Going 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA during the regular season, he posted a 2-0 record in the postseason with a 3.04 ERA (though all we remember is the 9th inning of Game 5 against Kansas City in the World Series).  The ending always leaves a sour taste in anyone’s mouth, so Harvey had a lot to prove in the 2016 season.
