Cubs ace Jake Arrieta looks to rediscover dominance and even NLCS

“He’s not going to be perfect every time,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “But I like the idea that he’s got a little extra rest going into this start. I’m anticipating a lot of what we’ve seen the last couple of months.”

Arrieta, one of the top Cy Young contenders in the National League this year, admitted on his side day after the Cardinals start that the adrenaline high and energy drain of the day leading up to that start may have contributed to the command issues.

“Early in the day, you’re trying to conserve energy, but almost anytime you start to think about the game – your approach, the way you’re going to attack that lineup – you’re starting to expend some energy,” Arrieta said. “And I would catch myself — heart rate starting to go up – even when I was just kind of hanging out. Those are things you learn how to control.”

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.
