If this was a decade or two ago under George Steinbrenner, it would seem nearly inevitable Harvey would end up with the Yankees after being designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday, following the paths of Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry, but it's not quite such a natural fit with the current team.

Alderson says that the team was guided by considerations of "pragmatism and realism", while suggesting the ultimate driver of Harvey's fall from grace was his slate of poor fortune in the health department.

The Mets now have seven days to trade or release Harvey.

He will be designated for assignment Saturday morning, taking him off the major league roster after a almost six seasons in a Mets uniform. He's a human being, and as I said before, he's a vulnerable, open human being and kind of leaves himself open for those of us who know and he semi-trusts at least. If Harvey is released, a team signing him would owe just a prorated share of the $545,000 minimum.

It's stunning, on the one hand, to see the end of Harvey's tenure in NY take place in this manner. It's just a little more of a bombshell in NY because of the history and the circumstances here. But Harvey's comeback will have to take place somewhere other than Citi Field.

He started the All-Star Game at Citi Field that July and was 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA when he tore an elbow ligament during a game against Detroit on August 24.
