It’s hard to be intimidated when you’re 6-foot-6, 240-pounds and throw a “hook from hell.” We’re talking about the Mets’ pitching prospect who’s starting to build a reputation in Port St. Lucie as anything but soft.
After another impressive spring outing, Craig is once again calling for the Mets to keep young fireballer Noah Syndergaard on their roster coming out of spring training — a take his radio partner doesn’t agree with.
Mets top prospect Noah Syndergaard pitched two scoreless innings in his Grapefruit League debut and New York beat Atlanta 6-2 Monday.
Mets fans finally have a lot to look forward to, and it’s not just the much-ballyhooed Noah Syndergaard who is worthy of attention.
Craig Carton doesn’t want to wait to see the kid with the “hook from hell” — and he’s absolutely sick of hearing the argument about Syndergaard’s arbitration eligibility.
Matt Harvey is back! Well, sort of. Harvey met a major goal on Saturday when he threw his first pitches since undergoing Tommy John surgery.
Dollars and cents always seem to take priority over wins and losses, and there is where a lot of the Mets’ problems lie. If Noah Syndergaard proves that good, it might be worth sacrificing the extra cash to get him started in the big leagues.
All eyes were waiting for the ball to explode out of Noah Syndergaard’s hands, and the young prospect on the fast track with the Mets didn’t disappoint. As manager Terry Collins put it, “wow.”
The 21-year-old threw 40 pitches, showing team owners, coaches and executives what they can expect from his fastball, curve and changeup once he gets the call to the big leagues.
It’s going to be an intriguing season for the Mets, one filled expected maturation of young players and production from some key veteran signings, but where the Amazins end up in the NL East is anyone’s guess.
According to a report, Noah Syndergaard could be on an accelerated path to make his Mets debut in June 2014.
For what feels like a lifetime, Mets fans have been hearing that THIS is the offseason. THIS is when it will all change. 2014 will be the year that the Mets FINALLY field a team that can contend. You’re up, Mr. Alderson.
We all know how this ends. We’re talking about the Mets, a franchise so rife with self-inflicted wounds that even the kindest of baseball gods won’t deign to cut it an occasional break.
Terry Collins’ contract will expire at the end of the season. I’m not suggesting that Fred Wilpon should give him a four-year extension. But I’d like to see him finally have a chance with a team that’s built to contend.
The opening event for three days of All-Star festivities at Citi Field, the Futures Game certainly had a Mets flavor in their home ballpark.
