In the Weirdest Ski Season Ever, Big Resorts are Booming

"About this time of year most years a lot of people start dreaming about their upcoming ski trips but this year is possibly the weirdest year ever for skiers and snowboarders last year marked a turning point in which two giant conglomerates took over the ski industry in two thousand eighteen. Colorado private equity firm called k. s. l. partners got together with another investor and launch the multibillion dollar altera mountain company altera snapped up big-name resorts including steamboat springs mammoth resorts in california and deer valley resorts l. Terrorism enormous rival vail resorts went on a buying spree to last year. Veil the biggest ski resort company in north america continued scouring the country for acquisitions the bottom line. These dueling mega corporations as the wall street journal. Call them bought. Most of north america's top snow resorts and started selling ski passes that work at dozens of locations in twenty nineteen veils. Epic pass was good. At sixty nine different global resorts alturas icon. Got you into forty-one resorts from colorado steamboat. Ski resort to switzerland zermatt. The numbers climbed even higher. During the two thousand twenty ski season their strategies aggressive acquisitions and virtual multi mountain season passes allowed the to dominate the industry. If you're a ski company mogul the financial future. Looked amazing notice. I use the past tense. There there's not an industry exact who saw cove at nineteen coming or how it would devastate the industry last march. More than ninety percent of america's resort shut their doors abruptly as a whole. The industry lost about two billion dollars. According to the national ski areas association veils fiscal twenty. Twenty revenues fell thirty percent. Altera is privately owned but likely to affect the same pain so you might assume that. The outlook is pretty dark this season. Well you might be wrong. At production time vale. Stock price was close to a record high. Almost two hundred eighty dollars a share. That seems head-spinning. On the one hand you have an industry that relies on traveling and gathering together in a year when both restricted but so far the outlook for vail tara is far from that of a year without snow. Sales avail season passes of already surged twenty percent this year reports the colorado sons jason blevins. Why with indoor activities. Few and far between outdoor recreation of all kinds has skyrocketed moreover to comply with regional cova capacity restrictions. Some resorts are restricting. Day lift tickets. They're giving first dibs to. You've got it. Season pass holders vail now. Terra designed multi mountain. Ski passes as a way to make sales all year long and take a little of the sting out of paying the lift ticket window but now a season pass has become almost essential for snow lovers. If you don't have one you might not ski at all and even if you do you'll have to reserve your trip ahead of time. Once you're there the experience will be very different. Not surprisingly you'll have to social distance in lift lines at some resorts. You won't be allowed on a lift or gondola with anyone. But the companions you came with most indoor dining in bars or closed you may have to reserve a parking space and the resorts would prefer that you steal a day off mid week and skip that weekend skiing. These safety precautions are designed to keep ski resorts open and keep skiers and snowboarders lining up with their boots keys and wallet. If cova cases start climbing near your favourite mountain though it could all change overnight in the meantime we have a few words of wisdom for you. The intrepid skier be patient. Watch out on those double black diamonds and don't forget. Bring your lunch

"blevins" Discussed on Dallas Hoops Fancast - A Podcast for Dallas Mavericks Fans

"We have a new article up on Players the mavericks should target for sign intrigues Thankfully like ninety percent of them were signed as soon as i published. I publish it like two hours before. Free agency started. But there's still some good ones on their bogged on. Bogdonovich is one of them so we can talk about that And then there's another one on other just general free agents. i think they should target Anyway so that's the site. Youtube channel is dallas. He was cast. Post the pod there but i also post short clips. So if you're not into a forty five minute episodes you can go to youtube channel and you'll get like three to five minute clips of basically the best parts of the show which but also listen to the whole forty-five minutes because it's all good okay. Free agency started and things are happening. The mavericks made a trade for josh richardson from the philadelphia. Seventy sixers we're going to share our thoughts on him. But i wanted to hear something for my guy or from somebody. That's been watching josh richardson. That knows more than just you know watching the highlights on youtube. We've been doing so. I talked to jason blevins from the painted. Lions dot com. He's as sixers reporter and so he knows the team. He's in the locker room so there's an interview i'm gonna lead with that. And he talks about richardson's strengths and weaknesses. Offensively and defensively. What we can expect what his what his fit will be like. So let's get to that interview and then we'll talk about what we think are what we expect from josh. Richardson okay. I'm here with jason blevins from the painted lines dot com as well as espn radio. You cover the sixers. And so i figure the perfect person to talk to to learn more about josh richardson. Who the mavericks just acquired via trade. The first thing i wanted to ask you was actually just how you felt when you first heard that he was getting traded. Were you sad. Were you in different. Like.

How Police Violence Could Impact The Health Of Black Infants

"Floyd's killing in Minneapolis placed police violence again in the national limelight, with protests erupting. But black and Brown communities say the effective police violence is felt long after demonstrations died down. In fact, research shows trauma from racism and violence can leave imprints on a community's health, including on pregnant women. Here's NPR's Yuki Noguchi. Outside the corner store where George Floyd died. Murals, stuffed animals and origami cranes filled the street. So I'm Rachel Heart of men. I am on the faculty. Rachel Hardman grew up nearby and it's a public health professor at the University of Minnesota. We walk in a field where there's a memorial for victims of police violence. It looks like a replica of a cemetery with about 200 grave markers like Ralph Bell, right? Hard del Cheryl over here. Many of these people were local and died at the hands of police. Travis Jordan in Minneapolis. He's actually it was a friend of one of my dear friends, Hardman surveys to makeshift cemetery. My first thought, is it This isn't even all of the names. And that breaks my heart. This scene, she says, doesn't capture the whole of the problem that police violence leaves marks across a community of survivors, their families and neighbors. Hardiman studies racial disparities in health, focusing on a longstanding problem. Black mothers die in childbirth of 3 to 4 Times The rate of whites That holds true regardless of wealth or education. Black babies are more than twice as likely to die in their first year. Research suggests racial discrimination is a likely cause of both preterm birth and infant mortality. Weighing factors like obesity, smoking or poor prenatal care. Hartmann's latest research looks at how police violence in particular might affect that. She studied women in and around Minneapolis after police shot Philando Castille in 2016, and two years later, Thurman Blevins Thurman Blevins had just been killed in North Minneapolis. And we asked folks do you feel like this is impacting your current pregnancy and Over half of the women in our study said Yes, nearly 60% of those women gave birth to pre term babies who were underweight or died at route, she says. It's about stress. Ah, lifetime of struggles of her housing, education and safety. Large body research shows that that stress across pregnancy can have an impact on low birth weight and preterm birth in particular. Then in the start of life is so important, because if we can't get that, right, you know we're setting someone up for a lifetime of pain and a struggle and disadvantage. Examining these struggles, Hardman says, might help doctors better understand challenges for women like Raven Cane. I meet cane and her three week old daughter, Remmy. Okay. Prior to Remmy Kane had five miscarriages with no medical explanation about what caused them. I had gotten an ultrasound and had seen a baby in a strong heartbeat. Literally had come back the next day, and there was nothing there. So I just had this really high anxiety anxiety about losing her pregnancy with Remmy, too. She was about four months pregnant when the pandemic hit. Then George Floyd died blocks from her parent's home. You know, During that time, it was constant sirens when they were saying that the KKK was supposedly in town, and it's just stressful. It's like and then you're trying to Carry life and then you're thinking about them being a black person in this world and the things that they might encounter, Kane tried to distract herself by hosting a family party to reveal she was having a girl. My dad was jumping open down like he was so heavy, he said. He was in the garage and cried a little bit, cried partly out of relief. He told her the world wasn't safe for black boys. Midwife Rebecca Polston. Here's that often. Holsten started roots community birth center five years ago to offer women more support than a traditional hospital. Clinic defied the odds in five years on Lee. One client has had a preterm birth, she says. That's because the clinic addresses trauma. Some of the things that we explore is not finding out the sex. Of their baby because the stress that it brings when you find out that you're having a black sun. That kind of stress, she says, is palpable all around her. After George Floyd's death, Colston says she confronted a group of white men flying Confederate flags three blocks away. She closed the birthing center for a week. But the threat, she says, isn't just from outsiders. Once an elderly neighbor fainted nearby, Polston and her staff rushed to help and the police came up with their hands on their guns saying, What are you doing to us while we're taking blood pressure clearly healthcare providers those Interactions where those who you call for help. May not come to help you but come to harm you shadows every aspect of one's life and it becomes especially acute when you're in your birthing phase of your life. That rings true for coming Love Valenzuela. I don't know how to explain it, but I feel like that trauma is just in my body balance way Low is a doula. Originally from Chile Four years ago, she went into early labor. On her way to the hospital. Police pulled her over for driving with high beams on she told him. him. I I have have an an emergency. emergency. I'm I'm pregnant pregnant and and he he stops stops me. me. I I need need to to see see your your driver's driver's license license and and registration. registration. So So I'm I'm scrambling, scrambling, shaking. shaking. Just remembering makes like my heart beagle so fast. She was scared and her contractions intensified. She says he'd be raided her ticketed her and insisted she keep the windows rolled down its frigid cold. I'm crying my tears or freezing as they're coming down because it's so cold. Her baby survived. But this spring, Valenzuela nearly died giving birth to her second child. She blames her earlier encounter with police because my uterus had worked so hard, potentially from this previous Drama. I actually had an acute hemorrhage. Two months later, George Floyd died about a mile away. She's still haunted that he called out for his mother as he died. So, too, is researcher Rachel Hardiman. You know, when George plaids yelled for his mama and summon all mothers, Hardman stands just a few feet from where he was killed. It's just so painful. You know, this'd why do the work that I do is so that every mom gets to have a healthy baby and Have a good life. She's expanding her research nationally to keep digging into the connections between police violence and its impact on mothers and their babies.

Freshwater Mussels Are Dying And No One Knows Why

Freshwater Mussels Are Dying And No One Knows Why

"TALKING FRESHWATER MUSSELS. And the fact that they're dying off. Where should we start so I actually want to take you to South West Virginia right near the border with Tennessee? Mattie put on your waiters done okay because we're about to get into the waters of the clinch river so the clinch river flows at the feet of the southern Appalachian Mountains. The water is cold very clear and that is good news because freshwater mussels live on the bottom of rivers. They're kind of like sorta like the less edible version of their saltwater cousin they don't get the same love but they bury themselves in the sediment and among the rocks on the bottoms of rivers and I went out to find some of these muscles with Jordan Richard a biologist with the US fish and wildlife service who is obsessed with freshwater mussels and it did not take him long waiting out into the water for him to find what he did not want to see how long this is a matter of like. How long does it take until we see something that died very recently won? Shell was just laying there even say it's not buried. That's its footing Jordan. There he'd reached into the water and pulled out that muscle a pheasant shell. That's the species but should be buried in food. Not that's dead and this show is about the size of his palm. It's this beautiful. Golden Brown color But the Muslim side is usually a smooth. Pink is turning Greyish Brown and frayed around Sedgwick's Basically it's rotting in place. I saw that one took a few steps out and by the time I stopped right there at like five expecting not a good way which I'm pretty I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing and I'm GonNa see just getting completely like bombed with the muscles but it's obsolete lousy you out there finding like dead muscle after dead muscle. Yeah I mean they were everywhere and you heard Jordan say but this is really not what he was expecting. It was not the time of year that they typically see a bunch of mortality You know he was just being nice and taking a reporter but biologists have been going at different sections of the clinch river since it was first noted in two thousand sixteen and in just one section of that river the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the number of pheasant shell muscles that have died is in the hundreds of thousands knee. It sounded like I don't know just hearing his voice on the tape that he was super upset. Yeah I mean he was on the verge of tears when we were talking and then he tried to apologize about later. Which I didn't think was obviously not necessary but it was upset because he's so frustrated by what's happening they don't know what's causing this and there's this kind of feeling of helplessness. This guy is so passionate about freshwater ego systems. It's his entire life. I mean he actually said that he had three fish tanks house one by his bed one by the foot of his bed and one in the living room so yeah very understanding wife. Okay but let's talk a little bit more about why people are trying so hard to save these muscles. They play a really important role in freshwater ecosystems. Right totally so. They don't often get the attention they deserve. Here's someone who knows that all too well. People don't tend to get quite as excited about things that lack burns. Unfortunately that was emily blevins. She's a conservation biologist with Versi Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Which you know besides having a really cool name is a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more under loved Chrisny. I'LL SAY AT ONCE. I'LL SAY THOUSAND TIMES INVERTEBRATES. Don't get enough credit. I know I mean I think as vertebrates are a little biased but these muscles do deserve a ton of credit. There are filter feeders so that means that they filter water through them. While they're down they're just chilling on River Bottoms. There's research that shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides and flame retardants and they remove E. coli from the water. They're like our little water filters exactly so a few of the biologists. I talked to really did say you can think of them. As nature's equivalent to a BRITTA filter cleaning up the water that we drink implant but they all sorts of cool stuff like reducing the size and impacts of dead zones. Those big nasty you know fishing life killing phenomena to keep occurring in the Gulf. They do that by filtering out. Sediment and agricultural runoff They sequester carbon phosphorus heavy metals in their shells. They reduce fecal bacteria from water. And you know like what's not to love about Madonna got it thank God. A single freshwater. Mussel can filter more than fifteen gallons of water in a day and besides that they provide habitat to tons of other species. One biologist described them as like the fresh water equivalent to a coral reef. So these muscles are clearly out here doing a lot of work. We don't have any idea what's causing these die-offs so no I mean we have some hunches but you know Jordan. The biologists set it could be a million different things that is causing this There's a bunch of folks working on this from around. The country. University was constant is doing a lot of work and they've recently identified a virus and bacteria that they say are statistically associated with the dial keywords being you know statistically associated so not enough to say hey dingaling we found it but they're highly suspicious of a pathogenic cause and that is where their research is focused right now. What about the stuff like we? Humans are doing on climate. Change for example. Does that seem to be a contributor at all? Well I mean there's no doubt. The climate change is stressing river ecosystems as it is just about every system everywhere but it does not seem to be the driver of what's going on here as far as scientists can tell But I think it's important to note that there are other human components it sort of brought us to this place as I mentioned freshwater mussels or already on the brink and that is because of human activity fun fact before the Aplastic Freshwater Mussels were actually collected in cultivated by the millions to satisfy a commercial demand for buttons. Their shells were pearly white inside right. Thanks for Buttons Fresh Harman's But even more damaging was just you know the general destruction that was brought along by Human Development. So there was pollution from coal mining in the southern Appalachia Rivers dammed for power streams diverted for agriculture wetlands pay for housing and all of those things have brought freshwater mussels to the point where a mysterious die off can happen and it becomes so crucial to find out why fast because there's so little wiggle room left in the system all right eight. Your bumming me out. What's the plan? So there is a contingency plan all right and there always needs to be a contingency plan But like most contingency plans. It's one that nobody wants to use in this case it's a hatchery or nursery more or less for freshwater mussels one of our living screams So pheasant shells in here. That's the one that really dial so basically this place is like a last line of defense for some of these species they're going to breed them in captivity so at least they're not totally gone from planet earth. Exactly so tim and the other. Biologists are reproducing muscles. Here keeping them safe until they're mature enough to be brought back into the wild they're basically stock and when the recent die off started on the clinch river. They brought a bunch of muscles here from part of the river that wasn't affected And those muscles could not just be used as stock but they could also use a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the die-offs 'cause Worst case scenario they have to take some of those muscles and try to repopulate parts of the Clinch River. Where the muscles of Dino are going to stand idly by watching the way we're GonNa do the best we can to help them produce progeny. So of the species isn't going for Jordan Richard. The biologist remitted beginning also is helping with this effort and he says it you know he knows. That muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or polar bears but freshwater mussels are crucial to the health of other species. So if they go. We're going to have a lot of problems is not sexy to care about the foundation of Your House and you could renovate your kitchen but he says if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it. And then everything else including your fancy. New Kitchen is going to fall through to

Nature's 'Brita Filter' Is Dying And Nobody Knows Why

"We take certain parts of the natural world for granted right trees cleaning the air worms enriching soil bees pollinating crops but increasingly eating late. These natural systems that we rely on our failing. They're under attack from Climate Change Human Development and disease impairs Nathan. Rod Has the story of one critical all species. That's dying and the team racing to find out. Why slip into your waiters and slosh out into the knee? Deep waters of the clinch rip and South West Virginia agent the clinched lows at the feet of the age rounded southern Appalachian Mountain slowly descending towards Tennessee. It's water is sharp cold engine engine clear which is good because what we're looking for lives on the rock crusted river bottom on long and it's just a matter of like how long does a until we we see. Something died very recently. That is Jordan Richard A biologist with the US fish and Wildlife Service and. It doesn't take him long to find what he does is not one to see that one leads the peasants. Shell is just laying there even say it's not buried too. That's what should be buried in. But he pulls a palm sized object from the water. Not that's dead. Richard is holding a freshwater Mussel Less edible diversion of its saltwater. Cousin that lines river bottoms across the country cleaning water and providing habitat to other species. It show is Gold Brown and glistening but the milky white muscle inside is turning a gray brown at its edges the color of decay. Biologists Rose Apple log brings over another muscle in similar condition. That smell alley. Yeah it's real real bad. So that's been dead maybe couple days tier two they find another dead muscle and another by the time I stopped at five and then more after that it standing mid river a bit later Richard Lifts his gaze from the water and looks upstream seemingly nothing in particular expecting. It's not a good way which I'm pretty used to. I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing. I'm going to see just getting completely the bomb with the muscles but the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates mates that hundreds of thousands of freshwater mussels have perished since the day off was I noticed in two thousand sixteen. Biologists and fishermen were finding finding fresh dead muscles week after week after week and not just here unexplained freshwater Mussel die-offs have since been documented in Oregon Washington Jason Wisconsin and Michigan. There's even been one in Spain and says a major concern for the future and for the future health of freshwater. Emily Blevins is a conservation. Biologist with Desert See Society for Invertebrate Conservation a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more let's say under loved critters and people belong to get quite as excited about but lack backbones unfortunately but many of those species are critically important to the natural world take freshwater mussels their filter feeders that remove algae sediment and heavy metals from passing water. There's research that's shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides songs and flame retardants and remove E. coli from the water so think of them as nature's equivalent to Britta filter cleaning the water. We drink while also so providing suitable habitat to countless other species. The problem is freshwater. Mussels are also one of the most imperilled species on the planet dozens of muscle types have already gone extinct in north. America wiped out by Water Pollution Human Development and habitat loss. The current die off is just one more threat widespread and fast moving. And it's 'cause Richard The biologist says that's the challenge it could be a million things but because of limited time hi and resources we've had pick and choose what we think is the most likely things and start running them down and it takes years worth of effort a team at the University of Wisconsin. That's working with Richard and blevins has detected a virus and a bacteria that are statistically associated with the die off but they're not willing to call either the culprit it just yet climate change stressing ecosystems and threatening species around the world but it does not seem to be the driver here so with the clock. Ticking and cause is unknown. The team in Virginia has something of a contingency plan. A hatchery. Nursery more or less per freshwater mussels is one of our live live in screamed so pheasant. Shell is in here. That's the one that really dial Tim Lane is a muscle recovery coordinator with the Virginia Department of game and Inland Fisheries. He's walking through. What's essentially along shit mind with? PVC pipes trump's and dozens of shallow black buckets half filled with sand. These buckets are home to a WHO's who of endangered mussels species in here. Come away come. Show not to be confused with the endangered Cumberland monkey-face keep pace nearby over here. We have golden shell over here fifty. That's more than probably a wild that we haven't put out there. This facility ability is a last line of defense for some freshwater mussels species lane another. Biologists are reproducing them here and then keeping them safe until they're mature enough to to be brought back into the wild when the recent diop's started on the clinch they brought a bunch of pheasants shells here from an unaffected part of the river. The muscles could be used as a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the Diop's 'cause but in a worst case. Scenario with diaw continues unabated. They could also be used as stock going to stand idly by washing away. We're GONNA do the best we can. To help them produce progeny. So the species isn't going through inside the hatcheries attorney's office away from the troughs pumps lane and Richard say they know muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or as easy to communicate as the plight apply to the polar bear but Richard says freshwater mussels and many other lesser known species are like the foundation of a house that everything lives in is not awesome to care about the foundation of your house. You could renovate your kitchen but if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it.

And he said today's stream is a sponsored stream when he came on that day the very first day. It was just for that day that it was sponsored, but apparently a paid him one million US dollars to stream apex legends. These days. It's not uncommon to see big companies promote their gains by cutting deals with top YouTubers and streamers, but how much does one of those deals cost law in a chameleon haired twitch king Tyler ninja Blevins, the number could be as high as one million dollars. Although it hasn't been confirmed citing anonymous source Reuters published a report today saying publisher EA paid ninja one million to play apex legends and tweet about it the day after the game launched on February fourth ninja has over thirteen million followers on twitch, not to mention some twenty odd million on YouTube, meaning that anything streams or post via video.

I thought they did a good job on bachelor came out throwing you know. It was very loud when he was throwing so it was. Good to see him come out and and do the job that he did given the time that he had off task, anybody to, come out after ten days off is tough Vargas the same way he faced Hitters two weeks ago and came out today and really battled and did a good job of keeping. Us in the game do you think this situation will allow them, to perform, with a little less pressure maybe then I, mean just given the way that you've kind of stated adult get an opportunity now that they can kind of go out there and not. Worry about you know does it have to be today if it doesn't work out well It should there's always? Pressure Especially late in the game when the. Scores tied or you're up these young guys. Are going to feel. Pressure they haven't felt before so this is why we want to.

"Left field but yellow which is able to make the catch and stays tied as we move along to the bottom of the tenth inning i better tyler salad dino he would end up flying out and then that would bring up eric sogard one one to sell guard line field offer twenty eight no more so guards got knocked knock to start this with one away in the bottom of the tenth so he's on at first lorenzo cain within hit a ball deep to center field off the bat i thought it was out of here so did eric sogard guard i think because he was around second he was about a step maybe step stepping a half off of second towards third base when that ball was caught deepen centerfield michael conforto try to get it back in but so so guard ran as fast as he possibly could at he was able to get back into first base which was good if he wanted to have that would have been back to back innings or the brewers had a runner doubled off on a fly ball but that doesn't happen so guard is still at first base and that allows christian yelich to do this one ball one strike on yelich blevins deals curve ball hit towards right is that gonna get there at falls in front of them so guard is headed the third base cities there as the potential winning run with two outs and that was against jerry blevins and his day would then end at that point as the next banner to come up to the plate is airman perez and he comes up as a pinch hitter as he is set to.

"He no no he made a statement though that's forty pitches the pitcher would be out of the game he did make that statement after the game that if a guy throws forty pitches in innings to taxing and you guys would be out of the game i didn't know that was a hot and fast rule forty pitches and you're out of the game i understand forty pitches is a lotta pictures for dinning is a very heavy inning and that wasn't excessively har hard inning on the ground no question but i i don't know if you gain anything by throwing them if he's healthy i guarantee you everybody when he came out of the game yesterday thought there was something wrong with them well he came out of the game where you're watching the game yesterday yes so was i mean otherwise why he out after the first thing i understand that he wasn't going to have a long day we all knew he wasn't going to have a long day of three hundred forty two pitchers in the first inning and if he had taken him out after ninety one hundred pitches i would have an issue fine if he's struggling again in the second inning i'd say okay maybe he's not on his game today you want to protect them but he got out of the inning without giving up a run said he felt fine then one let them fill up at least see if he can you know throw five innings and then later in the game pitches see i'm not buying everything i'm hearing from him anyway because his blevins thing made no sense he said he would not get pitches up and not use them which he did with blevins then he said it has nothing to do with splits as to why because you know this guy the left definitive for williams actually had better numbers because did righties so but you said that and and and blevins has not been great against lefties this year he's that nothing to do with it he also said he was concerned about how many pictures he was gonna use on the game but he was a pitcher he add up he wound up using two more pitches anyway and not using blevins in the game.

"You know to addison reed or jerry blevins type of role no he wasn't gonna be what read while i mean even when reed was here when he was that good and blevins of course now he you just you can't make that transition for the team when you've been the dark knight you have the reputation here and you're in this market and the media will never leave you alone so it was never going to happen here my concern is that it's not going to happen anywhere because he can't throw and coming back from the therapeutic is a very difficult thing and it's you know i mean it's documented that it's a very difficult thing so i'm not at all confident that he'll ever pitch again effectively in the major leagues and i applaud the mets for getting rid of the problem but clearly they were of the belief that it was addition by subtraction here because the mets generally move at a glacier like pace and instead they got rid of matt harvey you know right away like this isn't this having matt harvey on this roster is not going to help us it's not going to help us tomorrow a week from tomorrow or a month from tomorrow so let's end it right here so i applaud the mets for that because when you come to that conclusion ended and it as fast as you can and move on don't have it hanging over you and that's what they did and that's what they should have done so that's number one number two as smug and arrogant and as negative as sometimes the view of him was and the fact that he appeared and we always use this term because we only get what we get it's not like we know him personally but it appeared that he took his success for granted and he hired the wrong agent who said the wrong things and they just did a lot of personal damage to his reputation here whether he earned all of it or not at your opinion you're entitled to it whatever your opinion is but no one wants to see a guy's career and his lifelong dream and because he used bad judgment at times in his twenties and matt harvey used a lot of bad judgment at times in his twenties and he.
