2017 Mets Season Review: Noah Syndergaard’s lost year

2017 Mets Season Review: Noah Syndergaard’s lost year

An early injury ruined what could have been a Cy Young year for Thor. Expectations were sky high for Noah Syndergaard coming into 2017. A year after breaking out as a legitimate ace and receiving significant down-ballot Cy Young votes, Thor came into camp having added muscle and expressing a desire to throw harder. During spring training and the early part of the season, that goal seemed totally in reach, as he posted some truly gaudy average velocities: 99.50 on his four-seam fastball, 98.81 on his two-seamer, and an absurd 93.09 on his slider. All of those velocities would have been the...

Mets in the market for a new manager after 2017 debacle

NEW YORK (AP) - By the time April was over, Noah Syndergaard and Yoenis Cespedes were already hurt. Five months later, the New York Mets are in the market for a manager. A season that started with such promise finally crawled to its merciful end Sunday when the depleted and ...

Mets Morning News: The 2017 season is officially over, Terry Collins’s tenure reaches its conclusion

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The final game of 2017 went much like the Mets’ season, once Noah Syndergaard was out everything fell apart. Syndergaard looked fantastic in his two-inning appearance but Chris Flexen did not. The defense let Flexen down a bit and the Phillies piled on against Rafael Montero late. The offense was shut down by Phillie pitching and all told it was just another Sunday, but mercifully this was the final one of the year for the Mets.

Mets vs Phillies Recap: Smell Ya Later, Terry

Mets vs Phillies Recap: Smell Ya Later, Terry

A mercy killing by mercy rule. The Mets closed out their season in pathetic fashion today, dropping the game and the series to the Phillies by a score of 11-0. Despite getting two strong innings from Noah Syndergaard to start the game, the fourth inning doomed the Mets, due to some poor pitching, poor fielding, and poor management. Noah Syndergaard started for the Mets and, over his two innings of work, struck out two, walked one, gave up no hits, and reached 101 mph on the radar gun. Hopefully, Syndergaard has an uneventful off-season, and can get back to performances like...

Final Score: Phillies 11, Mets 0—Cripes

Final Score: Phillies 11, Mets 0—Cripes

We welcome the sweet embrace of the off-season. The Phillies defeated the Mets 11-0 this afternoon at Citizen’s Bank Park, putting the Mets’ season to bed and, with it, the managerial career of Terry Collins. The afternoon began with a short, two-inning start from the rehabbing Noah Syndergaard, who looked quite good, walking one and giving up no hits while striking out two and hitting 101 miles per hour with his fastball. He would be relieved by Chris Flexen who, along with some defensive miscues by Dominic Smith, gave up six runs in the fourth inning, putting the game out of reach...

The Mets will bring their 2017 campaign to a close in Philadelphia

There’s a good chance that Noah Syndergaard shows up as New York looks to end the season on a high note. We’ve finally made it, guys. These last three games in Philadelphia mark the end of a disappointing regular season and the beginning of an offseason that will hopefully help turn the Mets back into a winning organization. Sure, it’s a little sad that we won’t get to watch the Mets play baseball again until spring training starts up, but it’s also going to be exciting to see how the front office addresses the team’s issues over the next few months. Or maybe the front office...

Final Score: Nationals 4, Mets 3—Superhero Cameo

Syndergaard throws spotless first inning in extra inning Noah Syndergaard made a blink-and-you’d-miss-it cameo in his first major league appearance since April 30. Syndergaard hit 99 MPH on the gun over his five pitch appearance. The Nationals made some solid contact, but Daniel Murphy grounded into a double play to end Syndergaard’s brief return. The Mets jumped out to an early lead by plating three in the bottom of the third inning against Stephen Strasburg. A Brandon Nimmo RBI double opened the scoring, then Kevin Plawecki followed with a two-run single that just squirted through...

New York Mets: Yoenis Cespedes plans to adopt new offseason training program

Noah Syndergaard arrived at New York Mets Spring Training with 17 pounds of added muscle, thanks to an offseason workout regimen heavy on weight-lifting and strength training. Yoenis Cespedes also adopted a weight-centric workout program with team strength and conditioning advisor, Mike Barwis. “His workout is phenomenal,” Barwis said back in February. “He is in here […] The post New York Mets: Yoenis Cespedes plans to adopt new offseason training program appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Stephen Strasburg and Noah Syndergaard go head-to-head (for a few innings at least) in the second of three for the Nationals in New York... Noah Syndergaard returns to the mound in the majors tonight for the first time since he walked off the field in Nationals Park back in late April with what was diagnosed as a partially torn lat muscle. New York Mets’ skipper Terry Collins talked at the time about the fact that the hard-throwing right-hander had attempted to pitch through pain for the sake of his team when he ended up getting hurt. "Heroes die real fast in baseball," Collins said, as...
