Over the weekend, the Baseball Writers Association of America held their annual dinner, presenting players with prestigious awards.
Of course, this was also the weekend of an enormous storm, causing the BBWAA to cancel the event for the public.
It went on as planned, however, in a private ceremony, but it was missing one key person -- New York Mets starter Matt Harvey.

Harvey was set to accept his award for Toast of the Town from the New York chapter and apparently couldn't make it through the blizzard. GM Sandy Alderson had a theory:
Matt Harvey didn't make the BBWAA dinner. Said Alderson: "The flights from SoHo must have been cancelled."-- Mike Puma (@NYPost_Mets) January 24, 2016
Earlier in the day, Harvey posted a picture from his neighborhood in West Village:

Conspiracy theory city!
For what it's worth, Alderson seemed to be in a light-hearted mood that night, joking about everything from Scott Boras to opt-out clauses:
Alderson also tweaked Scott Boras, thanking him for his cooperation in the Matt Harvey innings controversy.— Mike Puma (@NYPost_Mets) January 24, 2016
Alderson jokes he has an "opt out" that allows him to skip next year's BBWAA dinner.— Mike Puma (@NYPost_Mets) January 24, 2016
Harvey went 13-9 with a 2.71 ERA across 29 starts in 2015.
