Noah Syndergaard has officially been an LA Angel for a few weeks now.
Syndergaard has been getting lots of unnecessary hate from New York Mets fans and New York radio personalities for going to our team since he made the move. Syndergaard did nothing wrong, but still continues to receive a ridiculous amount of hate from The Big Apple.
Recently, he explained that while he may have a second home in Mets fans' heads, he has absolutely nothing against them himself. Check out his response to a petty comment from a New York fan:
Even in a scenario where the Mets win a championship without Syndergaard, he would still be happy as long as it's of course not against his former team. Prety reasonable stuff from Thor here. I really don't get why Mets fans are so angry at him going to the Angels.
Noah Syndergaard would prefer an LA Angels-New York Mets World Series.
An LA Angels-New York Mets World Series would be very entertaining. The funniest part of it would be all the Mets fans who would hate on Noah Syndergaard despite him doing nothing wrong, and not even having anything against the Mets at all.
It makes sense as to why Syndergaard has no hard feelings towards the Mets organization. He had a great run there, and was an All-Star. Recording a 3.32 ERA, a 119 ERA+, and a 2.93 FIP, it makes sense as to why Thor has good memories of playing there.
You would think Mets fans would feel fondly about him as well, considering they had the best season they'd had in 15 years in 2015, winning the National League. They absolutely would have not won the pennant if Syndergaard didn't come up.
Syndergaard posted a 3.24 ERA and a 1.047 WHIP that season. He struck out 10 hitters per nine innings despite only walking 1.9 batters per nine. There was so much to love from Syndergaard's tenure with the Mets.
It's surprising to see how much real estate Syndergaard apparently has in the collective heads of the Mets' fanbase. Syndergaard, on the other hand, is doing just fine.
