The Met, the Myth: Searching for Noah Syndergaard’s Viking Roots in Denmark - The New York Times

More than 120 years ago, Simon Hansen Sondergaard left this town in southwest Denmark for the United States. He settled in Iowa, along with four of his five siblings, where he farmed and raised a family.

Four generations later, his great-great-grandson was born in Mansfield, Tex. Noah Syndergaard — with a surname slightly Anglicized from his Sondergaard ancestry — would go on to become a budding star pitcher for the Mets, beloved by the team’s fans for his fastball and, in part, for his lineage. Syndergaard’s stature has grown this season, and some fans have worn Viking horns to games he has pitched. Others have carried hammers in tribute to his nickname, Thor. Expect some of that to be on display Saturday when Syndergaard is on the mound against the Yankees at Citi Field.

Cubs-Mets trade will happen ‘at some point’

s both teams move toward contention in the near future, Cubs’ general manager Jed Hoyer believes that the sides will eventually match up on a deal (via Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times).

“We haven’t made a deal yet, but there’s been matches that made sense, and I’m sure we’ll talk to them in the future,” said Hoyer, who has a relationship with Mets player-development executive Paul DePodesta going back to their time together in the Padres’ front office.

Cubs president Theo Epstein and Mets GM Sandy Alderson also have a good relationship.

“I guess when you factor in the hitting and the pitching, I guess people think it’s unusual,” Hoyer said of the fact the teams haven’t hooked up on a trade.

“But it’ll happen at some point.”
