The Dark Knight, Harvey Day stuff seems like a one-time movie I watched or concert I attended a long, long time ago. It exists only as a fun, unique memory that I'll never see again. And that's OK, I'm fine with it being in the past. We all grow up, gain perspective and adjust our goals and priorities... and Matt Harvey is no different... These days, Harvey isn't focused on being the best, most dominant pitcher in baseball. He is no longer focused on demoralizing opponents with a devastating fastball and slider. He no longer does high-profile interviews with non-sports publications talking about fashion and style and dating supermodels. He no longer speaks about wanting to be Derek Jeter. Instead, as his manager Mickey Callaway told him when they talked in the off-season, Harvey's goal now is to simply be the best Matt Harvey he can be... In his start Wednesday against the Braves in Orlando, he allowed one earned and two hits, while walking one batter and striking out two, in two innings. He tossed 38 pitches and -- for the first time in years -- looked confident and satisfied from the minute he stepped on the mound through when he spoke his last word to reporters.
