07:27 AM ET 09.17 | As expected, Matt Harvey met with Dr. James Andrews Monday morning -- making this his official second opinion. [He] returned to New York without announcing a decision on how he will proceed with the partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. [Harvey] said last week it was unlikely he would make an immediate decision about whether to undergo Tommy John surgery after the appointment, but the team feels he is close to making a decision about rehab or surgery. The Mets announced they would have more information Tuesday on Harvey's second opinion. Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, did not return a message for comment. The front office, however, is hopeful that Harvey will make a decision, and give them an idea of how to proceed in the offseason for 2014, before the end of this month.

Get it done already. The ligament will NOT reattach, thus, he will NOT have full strength - no matter what rehab is done. Get the surgery done now. Quit putting off the inevitable (IMHO). First time you snap off a curve, that thing is going to pop........

BUT - I am not a doctor - so what do I know.

why wait? Get the surgery done now. If Harvey waits until end of season he will be out that much longer. Most Tommy John surgeries usually take a full calendar year to heal before you can start throwing. Harvey and the Mets can kind of write off 2014 of having Harvey in the rotation.

Give the Mets an opportunity to showcase what they are best at. Make all of them new castmembers at SNL. Why should baseball fans be the only ones to see the show?
