Here’s a clip from SNY of Kevin Burkhardt interviewing Wally Backman who is now part of the Mets coaching staff since the minor league season ended.

The subject is Mets rookie Matt Harvey who Backman says he’s never seen him pitch like this when he was at Triple-A Buffalo, and he wonders if Harvey was just bored in the minors and probably not going full tilt.

Have a look and you decide.  It’s an interesting listen.
