Poll: Do you care that Matt Harvey attended Derek Jeter’s final home game?

In case you missed it, Matt Harvey showed up at Yankee Stadium tonight to pay his respects to Derek Jeter. The issue? His own teammates were playing a game against the Nationals a few hundred miles to the south, with Zack Wheeler on the bump.

All of which begs the question: do you care?
