On Matt Harvey Doing Guest Appearances During Mets Broadcasts

Bob Raisman of the Daily News came up with a great idea of having Matt Harvey doing special guest spots during some SNY Mets telecasts, whether it be in the booth or studio.

“Naturally this all will be predicated on whether Harvey, coming off Tommy John surgery, would be inclined to go behind the microphone,” he writes.

“If Harvey has the time, what better way for the Mets organization to keep him connected with the fan base than allowing SNY suits to put him on the air. We are not talking a major schedule here. Maybe a few games or studio appearances during the regular season.”

Raissman says that SNY has already set a precedent for using an injured player in a studio role. In May of 2006 when pitcher Brian Bannister went on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, SNY brought him in to make a few appearances in the pre and postgame studio.

Hey, you know what, I’m all for it and I bet Matt would be into it too. He certainly has the personality for it, and he doesn’t seem to mind the spotlight at all.

Seeing Harvey appear from time to time would also serve as a constant reminder of his impending return for the 2015 season.
