Noah Syndergaard: About Yesterday Afternoon (August 30)

There was a span of about 30 minutes yesterday where I was convinced baseball games were fixed. Joe West wasn’t behind the plate. That was Tim Donaghy. It happened much quicker than that. My sudden insight didn’t exactly happen in the proverbial “blink of an eye.” That might be overselling it. I’ll say it happened …

Noah Syndergaard: About Last Night (August 25)

Sometimes I think my eyeballs are filthy liars. All night long—all night consisting of precisely five innings of work—I thought Noah Syndergaard (8-6) pitched well. He worked inside, backing big sluggers like Ryan Howard off the plate with a 99-mph fastball, and he hit the inside black for strikes, notably to Cesar Hernandez to lead …

Noah Syndergaard: About Last Night (August 19)

I’ll start today’s post off with a quote from my buddy Aaron: “The team in blue did good. The team in orange did better. Pacman Jones made it rain.” That about sums up the Mets 5-4 loss to the Orioles last night. It’s been a number of years since I’ve been to Camden Yards. Two …

Noah Syndergaard: About Yesterday Afternoon (August 13)

No one ever said this pitching thing was easy. Throw too many fastballs, as Noah Syndergaard (7-6) did in his two innings, and the batters sit on the pitch and hit the ball a long way. It doesn’t matter how hard you throw it. The fastball DJ LeMahieu hit for home run was clocked at …
