The Braves are 2-18 at home. If they lose today they'll have as many home losses by 5/25 as the '98 Yankees had all season (19)!

Is velocity loss key to Harvey's woes?

Matt Harvey's average fastball velocity is down nearly two mph from where it was the last four years. Harvey's heater has been hammered by opponents this season, perhaps a result of the missing speed.

Matt Harvey's 6.08 ERA and all-around terrible pitching are a much bigger deal than his decision to dodge the media. But if a player is going to bask in the good times, he needs to stand at his locker and answer for the bad. Sure, some writers get overwrought about the lack of accountability. But teammates notice it, too.
