The New York Mets had yet another extremely successful Opening Day performance, including a gem from Thor himself.

The New York Mets increased their already major league-leading record on Opening Days, raising it to 36-20 during the franchise’s history. Eight of those wins have been shutouts, including the six inning, no run gem from Noah Syndergaard on the first Opening Day start of his career yesterday.

ESNY has your highlights from yesterday’s Mets – Braves matchup here.

But the victory doesn’t come without its drawbacks, as Syndy left after six with just 86 pitches thrown, in part due to a blister on the upper part of his right middle finger.

“It’s a small blood blister, started probably around the second inning or so,” Syndergaard said after the game. “It popped in the fifth inning and started to bother me.”

The blister will allow Mets manager Terry Collins to hold back Syndergaard and give him an extra day of rest, as they had been contemplating anyway, according to the NY Daily News.

A Twitter viral video from NBC New York appeared around the Mets’ 1 o’clock game time of a rather, what you might call, “upset” fan, who was angry that a train derailment had caused delays at Penn Station, therefore pushing back his arrival to Opening Day in Queens.

Syndergaard got together with friends last night — including rotation-mate Robert Gsellman (on the back left) — following his successful opening to 2017, for a group dinner, presumably on him.

But this “Adam” guy that Thor wrote the oh-so kind #Adamsucks about, has been speculated by some here at ESNY to be the man who plays Syndergaard’s ultimate nemesis on a day-to-day basis — Mr. Met, writes ESNY’s Rob Sabo.
