Harvey DFA'd by the Angels

From the NY POST
SEATTLE — The Los Angeles Angels gave up on their $11 million investment in Matt Harvey, designating the 30-year-old right-hander for assignment on Friday.
Harvey was 3-5 with a 7.09 ERA in 12 starts. He gave up six runs, seven hits and five walks over six innings in a 6-2 loss to the Houston Astros on Thursday night.
“The decision was made because we felt like it would increase our chance of winning games,” Angels manager Brad Ausmus said after discussing the move with general manager Billy Eppler. “Matt was a very well-liked teammate, a guy that everyone pulled for, including myself. But we’re in the business of winning baseball games. In talking to Billy, we just felt like this was the best move to make in order to help us win games.”

This seems like Career Karma to me. Matt always thought he was bigger than the team he played for and then the injuries and weird diagnosis happened. I wonder if he realizes now that his best bet is to try to convert to a reliever so the way he can extend his career.

My response to @metspolice about @the7line cap release on Monday

I guess my cousin over @Metspolice is talking about The7Line Merch drop on Monday.

Let me see what hats I might get.

I like this one a lot. I have no idea why, but I am definitely digging it.

My wife wants this one. I don't think I can pull off this flower look.

I really like this one. One of my childhood memories was watching reruns of The Odd Couple with my uncles and Oscar Madison was always rocking this kind of cap.

I like this one too in a throwback look kind way. 

The other ones are okay but not my style. Not every design is going to hit HR with every single person. That is why there is a variety of caps released. Here you go Shannon. My official press release. for the new The7line caps releases. You can buy your caps at
