Braves announcer jokes about Matt Harvey getting hurt

Wishing injury upon an opposing player?  Probably not one of those areas you want to venture into as a broadcaster, even if you're joking.  That's what one Braves announcer (who we believe to be Joe Simpson) did with Mets phenom Matt Harvey at the dish on Tuesday.  Harvey pitched 6 no hit innings and the Mets won 4-3, but it's kinda depressing when the TV crew has to resort to "hoping the opposing pitcher gets a strained oblique" as keys to the game.

In the announcer's defense, at least he didn't wish a particularly painful injury upon Harvey like a torn rotator cuff or sepsis or something.
