Bartolo Colon when he comes back in July. I cannot wait to watch him back in the blue and orange.

But, if I had to choose one of the current pitchers to watch, I’d have to say Matt Harvey. Harvey just wasn’t Harvey last season. He couldn’t feel his fingers. This was all because of thoracic outlet syndrome, which he then had season-ending surgery for.

So, in sum, 2016 did not go as Harvey had planned. And in 2017, he wants to prove himself.

In fact, Harvey’s already said that. He’s said that he’s determined to bring a championship to Queens. He’s said that he feels good.

We all know how dominant Harvey can be. He’s the Dark Knight after all. And I believe the Dark Knight will rise again, and I can’t wait to watch this happen.

Yes, he’s had his ups and downs in Spring Training so far, but the guy is a bit rusty. I think he’ll be exciting to watch once the season begins, and I hope I’m right about this.
