Matt Harvey took to Twitter this morning and did some sparring with a Yankee fan who trolled him and got him to bite.
@MattHarvey33 You have what? NINETEEN career wins? Why on Earth do you think you can act like you're in the Hall of Fame?

While he was better off avoiding this nut job entirely, Harvey did manage to get off one good jab at the punk…
@NickDeBabylon I am quite happy and will enjoy rehab, life and getting back to beating the Yankees. Which I have done.

Harvey is vacationing all over the world this offseason with his super-model girlfriend Anne V. This morning he was tweeting from Thailand and simply sharing that with his followers. Nothing wrong with that and that’s what social sites like Twitter are for.
But our injured ace needs to handle criticism better than he’s shown so far. This is the third or fourth time that he’s gotten very defensive and while he’s had nothing but a run of success on the mound as a Met, how will he react if he hits a bad stretch like all pitchers do?
