Mets vs. Noah Syndergaard: The disagreement that could cost them a playoff spot

NEW YORK – Noah Syndergaard and Mickey Callaway aren’t on the same page regarding the value of pairing Syndergaard with his preferred catcher, Tomas Nido.

And it was made clear again Friday.

Syndergaard would rather throw to Nido than the Mets’ starting catcher, Wilson Ramos. There’s a certain comfort level with Nido. Syndergaard also benefits from Nido’s ability to better frame the low ball.

The Mets’ dilemma is that to appease Syndergaard and start Nido, it would leave Ramos, the NL’s hottest second-half hitter entering Friday, on the bench.

So, is this Peak Metsness, or can this be topped?
