New York Yankees, Mets: Top Five Electric Arms In The Big Apple

1. Noah Syndergaard (SP-NYM)

There’s only one man in New York City who can even touch the nastiness of the newly acquired Chapman, and his name is simply Thor.

Yes, Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard has the nastiest stuff in the Big Apple. It doesn’t he’s the best pitcher, yet. It simply means the pitches generated from this man’s arm are the scariest in combination.

Syndergaard is equipped with a 98 miles an hour fastball, 98 miles per hour sinker, and an 81 miles an hour knee-buckling curve. He also mixes in a high-80s change and seldom throws his slider.

The worst part about facing Syndergaard is not the stuff, it’s the complete package. The guy can overpower you on one pitch and finesse you on another.

Speed and finesse – it’s a hell of a combination.
