“I’ve been around some pretty good arms and this is the best group of arms and stuff I have ever seen”
Remember, this is a man who pitched parts of five seasons in the big leagues with Anaheim Angels and Texas Rangers and then going on to rapidly move up the ranks of the Cleveland Indians organization as a pitching guru. He oversaw a terrific staff in Cleveland under Terry Francona, reaching the high-point of Game 7 of the World Series and overseeing the AL Cy Young winner in Corey Kluber.
In just a few days, he’s already in love with these Mets arms and it hasn’t gone unnoticed in the eyes of Noah Syndergaard.
The always classic social media stud Thor provided his own unique take on Callaway’s words about the Mets staff.

Many fans and insiders are overlooking the 2018 Mets right now, mainly due to such a terrible 2017 that pushed the organization’s injury issues over the line of disaster. Matt Harvey and Steven Matz are usually injured, but Syndergaard himself struggled through his first big league season.
After leaving a start due to a lat injury, Thor prematurely ended his campaign with just seven starts producing a 2.97 ERA and 34 strikeouts in just 30.1 total innings pitched.
This season, Noah Syndergaard and company look ready to go and first-year manager Mickey Callaway couldn’t be more excited.
