New York Mets

The only thing more impressive than his pitching might be his social media game. New York Mets starter Noah Syndergaard is a Twitter delight.

Following another dominant performance on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates when he threw 8.1 innings, giving up one earned run while striking out 11, he also dominated the Twitter game.

The only thing he didn’t do on Wednesday was get a hit and so he apologized about that.


After a stellar rookie year, Noah Syndergaard has taken another step forward. Along with his hard throwing in which he sometimes cracks fastballs in the 100s, he also cracks some of the most entertaining tweets of any athlete.

His presence off the mound attracts fans especially on Twitter where he always seems to say something interesting and amusing.

Syndergaard has proven that he’s not just a darling on the mound but off of it, too. His pitching, competitiveness and amusing character makes him an endearing figure among Mets fans.

It’s a shame the man the kids call “Thor” won’t be running for president, though. His long golden flow of hair might be a nice change of pace in the oval office. He’s only 23, so maybe he’s just waiting to announce his campaign for 2020?

Time will tell.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
