It hasn't been a fun season around Citi Field, save for those days when Matt Harvey is on the hill. Harvey (7-2) has a 2.27 ERA with an NL-best 141 strikeouts and a WHIP of 0.91, third in the majors and second in the NL. He's among the leaders in everything but wins, but he's pitching for a second-rate team. So should Harvey start for the NL? Absolutely. He's the ace for the host team, but he deserves the honor based on his performance. The Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw (8-5, 1.89) is also a contender for the start, and he's on record as saying Harvey should get the nod. So give him the ball.
