Noah Syndergaard Never Forgets, but MLB Does
Last night after throwing behind Chase Utley, Syndergaard solidified his place in Mets lore as one of the most demagogue players to wear orange and blue. I’d like to think that if this were 1986, this Texas native could have easily donned a t-shirt that read, “Don’t F— With Me” and fit right in to the brash and ego driven team that eventually won the World Series.
Months after that fateful night in October, when Utley was a complete tool and broke Tejada’s leg, Noah Syndergaard sent a message that he will never forget any action taken against his fellow teammates. After much discussion in the media and amongst fans on Twitter, Syndergaard set the record straight and his message was sent loud and clear. Unfortunately for the Mets, he was promptly ejected by young 33 year old umpire Adam Hamari for a pitch that was clearly behind Utley and in no way going to harm the Dodgers second baseman.
