Noah Syndergaard wasted no time embracing Philadelphia on Twitter, while continuing to trash talk New York media
Noah Syndergaard wasted no time embracing the city of Philadelphia and Phillies fans after being dealt at the MLB Trade Deadline yesterday.
Immediately following the announcement that he would be heading to Philadelphia in exchange for former No. 1 overall pick Mickey Moniak, Syndergaard took to Twitter to get his account updated.
Apparently SNY is obsessed with Syndergaard on Twitter but luckily for Phillies fans, Syndergaard doesn’t shy away from chirping back at the nerds in New York. This is exactly the type of attitude you want from a starting pitcher in the National League East, even more so when he used to be a member of the Mets starting rotation. Welcome to Philly, pal. It’s time for a good old fashioned revenge tour. Get back to your old self and do some damage to the Mets while helping the Phillies erase a decade-long playoff drought.
Noah Syndergaard Trashing SNY, Mets Media on Twitter
Banging media members wives, stating the obvious that Mr. Met is a total creep, and the fact that he wants the ban the wave at MLB stadiums? Count me in. I’ve been an anti-wave guy as long as I can remember and was literally just tweeting about it last week after the Phillies were losing to the Braves by four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning while casuals did the wave in the background while the Fightins were attempting to mount a comeback against their NL East rivals.
It would be nice if Syndergaard could get back to his old self now that he’s in Philadelphia on a team that’s in the playoff hunt. This isn’t Anaheim. Fans actually care about baseball here so many that will provide Syndergaard with a little extra boost over the final two months of the season.
Syndergaard is 5-8 on the year with a 3.83 ERA over 15 starts. I don’t think Syndergaard has to get back to his 2018 years when he went 13-4 with a 3.03 ERA, but somewhere closer to the middle would certainly be a boost to the Phillies rotation.
We all know Zack Wheeler will eat up seven innings with ease and Aaron Nola definitely needs to solidify himself as a reliable No. 2 starter in big game situations. From there you have a combination of Ranger Suarez, Kyle Gibson, and Noah Syndergaard to be that third guy in the rotation in a playoff series. A combination of all three should be able to make the Fightins a threat come October.
