At six foot-six, with long blonde hair flowing from his hat, he almost looked mythical on the pitcher's mound. For six years the New York Mets had hoped that the player nicknamed "Thor" would be hammering opposing batters with his 100 mph fastball. The mythical character came to life on multiple occasions for Noah Syndergaard and the Mets, just not enough to keep the towering right-hander in Queens, NY. Tuesday night, the Yankees showed the Mets why they didn't lose much.
The colors and the name across the chest were new. The long blonde hair on the 6' 6" frame was all too familiar. Former New York Mets right-handed pitcher, Noah Syndergaard threw his first regular season pitches for his new team on Saturday. He wore number 34, like he did with the Mets. However, an Angels player had not worn that number in 13 years, exactly.
ESPN's Jeff Passan is reporting that New York Mets right handed pitcher, Noah Syndergaard and the Los Angelas Angels are agreeing to a 1 year $21 million dollar offer. The Mets did extend Syndergaard a qualifying offer that he has until tomorrow to accept. We will keep you updated.
