Mets’ Syndergaard goes off: Mickey Callaway firing talk is ‘bulls—t’

If the players want to keep Callaway around they need to play better.

“I think we have dug ourselves into a little bit of a hole,” Syndergaard said after the Mets lost 3-0 and were swept three games by the worst team in the major leagues. “Before anybody starts pressing the panic button, I just think everybody should be reminded of where we were in 2015.

“There were a lot of guys on this team that weren’t there then, but we were in a lot lesser shape and it was later in the season and we had some pretty good results that season.”

MLB roundup: Syndergaard homers in 1-0 shutout

Noah Syndergaard did it all for the New York Mets on Thursday afternoon, as the right-hander tossed a four-hitter and produced the game’s only run with a third-inning homer in a 1-0 win over the visiting Cincinnati Reds.

Syndergaard’s second career shutout — and his second homer of the season and the sixth of his career — gave the Mets a split of the four-game series. He walked one and struck out 10.

The 1-0 win Thursday was the first in the Mets’ 58-year history in which the starting pitcher accounted for the run with a homer. Syndergaard (2-3) is the first pitcher to homer for the only run in his shutout since Bob Welch did it for the Dodgers on June 17, 1983, also against the Reds.

The opposite-field homer by Syndergaard off Tyler Mahle (0-4) was the fourth of the season for a Mets pitcher, tying the franchise record set previously in 2016.

But remember! We can mock relievers as failed starters all we want, but any suggestion that designated hitters are failed position players gets folk looking at you like you’ve killed their dog!

Mets need struggling Noah Syndergaard to back up his words

Thor can’t close the door.

This strange Sunday could have had a much different ending if not for another poor outing from Noah Syndergaard.

Syndergaard did enough wrong on his own to merit the loss, but he got little help on defense from shortstop Amed Rosario. Rosario’s second-inning error helped the Cardinals to three runs on their way to the 6-4 victory at Busch Stadium.

The big right-hander allowed six runs, four earned, as his ERA shot up to 5.90. The Mets lost six of the last eight games on this 10-game trip.

“The entire beginning of the season my performances have been unacceptable,’’ Syndergaard said. “I have to be better and I will be better.’’

WATCH: Mets’ Noah Syndergaard not fazed by Braves’ mascot Blooper

As Mets fans know, starter Noah Syndergaard likes to have his fun with some mascots. Whether it’s his feud with Mr. Met or stealing the Philly Phanatic’s ATV, mascots always need to stay on their toes when it comes to “Thor.”

But the Atlanta Braves’ “Blooper” took initiative tonight by going up to Syndergaard himself to poke some fun. Well, Syndergaard—shades on and all—didn’t budge to any of Blooper’s antics.

They call him “blooper”, because that’s what leaving downtown Atlanta for the boondocks was….

Noah Syndergaard gave Mets’ bullpen much-needed relief in seven-inning performance

This is the Noah Syndergaard Mets fans are used to seeing.

From the start of Syndergaard’s night on the Citi Field mound against the Twins, you could feel this was one where “Thor” could go deep. His fastball was ramped up to 98-99 mph early, and he even topped 100 mph in the 1-2-3 first inning. After a quick blip in the third, where he allowed one run to cross the plate, Syndergaard cruised.

“Mechanically, I felt probably the best I’ve felt in a long time,” Syndergaard told reporters after his seven-inning, seven-strikeout night. “So just trying to work on continuing to make that consistent. I guess when my mechanics are spot on, I get a little more movement on my ball.”

Remember when a starting pitcher lasting for seven innings wasn’t news?

Noah Syndergaard rips Mets for planning workout in Syracuse

Before they return to New York City from their spring training home in Port St. Lucie, the Mets are stopping off in Syracuse to do a bit of promoting. The organization is debuting its new Triple-A team this season in Syracuse, and they’re holding a workout there this week in an attempt to stir up interest in the new club.

Syndergaard told reporters on Sunday that he thinks the trip is a horrible idea.

“I don’t know whose idea that was, but it’s not a smart one,” Syndergaard said. “I don’t think that’s conducive for winning ballgames, really — that much travel. I mean, I’m sure the amenities in Syracuse aren’t the best for a major league baseball team to go up there and have one last workout before the regular season starts, but those kinds of decisions are above my pay grade.

Mets P Noah Syndergaard wants to ‘bet’ on himself in free agency

He’d better get healthier.

In speaking to the press on Wednesday, including The Athletic’s Tim Britton, Syndergaard said that he’s willing to play out the final three years of team control without an extension and hit free agency in 2021.

“I trust my ability and the talent that I have. So I feel like I’m going to bet (on) myself in free agency and not do what they did,” Syndergaard said. “But if it’s fair for both sides and they approach me on it, then maybe we can talk.”
