New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard decided to take to Twitter after learning he was not a finalist for the 2016 NL Cy Young.
What? Is this for real?
It sure is.
On Monday, Major League Baseball announced the finalist for every player award for the 2016 season. Among these awards is the NL Cy Young, a category one specific New York Mets pitcher was thought to be a finalist.
Thor didn’t take too kindly to the news. He took to Twitter with this dandy:
Not a Cy Young finalist…not a big deal…right Dwight? pic.twitter.com/5sdtA8TrzW

Alright, so perhaps the title is a little misleading. Thor isn’t really “venting” in the classical sense. In classic Syndergaard way, he’s brought humor to the table simultaneously.
In any event, this is a damn travesty. Decide for yourself:
- Max Scherzer: 20-7, 2.96 ERA, 0.968 WHIP, 284 K
- Jon Lester: 19-5, 2.44 ERA, 1.016 WHIP, 197 K
- Kyle Hendricks: 16-8, 2.13 ERA, 0.979 WHIP, 170 K
- Noah Syndergaard: 14-9, 2.60 ERA, 1.149 WHIP, 218 K
