Mets phenom Matt Harvey is living the dream in his first full season in the majors, starting the All-Star Game in front of the hometown fans and dating a supermodel. So why not shoot for the moon?
Harvey said he wants to have Derek Jeter’s life, especially his love life, and have "the best apartment in the city" when he gets "that $200 million contract."
“That guy is the model,” the 24-year-old pitcher told Men’s Journal. “I mean, first off, let’s just look at the women he’s dated. Obviously, he goes out — he’s meeting these girls somewhere — but you never hear about it. That’s where I want to be.”
Never fear, fans. Harvey, who’s off to a 7-2 start with a 2.35 ERA, says he won’t go out before starts. Who do you think he is, Johnny Manziel?
“But those other days? Yes, I’m gonna go out,” he said. “If I was locked up in my house all week, I don’t know what I’d be like on the baseball field.”
Apparently, if he gets to keep playing the field in the Big Apple, Harvey knows exactly what he’ll be like on the baseball field: King of New York.
“No matter what, New York is now my home,” he said. “I could buy a place now, but I’ve gotta wait for that $200 million contract. If I’m going to buy an apartment, it has to be the best apartment in the city.”
