After a video of Brandon Nimmo jumping for joy after his walk-off run appeared on Twitter, New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard cashes in on a golden opportunity to burn him. 

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard is very good at two activities. Pitching and making jokes on Twitter. While he only pitches once every five days, he can make jokes on Twitter whenever the opportunity presents itself.

He received a prime opportunity to do exactly that after outfielder/very excited child Brandon Nimmo’s walk-off run courtesy of Wilmer Flores on Saturday night against the Diamondbacks, and he took it.

Video of Nimmo leaping in celebration after he scored appeared on Twitter, and made it’s way to Thor’s timeline. The upper-echelon pitcher called Nimmo “the dolphin we all adore” in a tweet.


This is not the first time that Syndergaard, who’s Twitter hilarity is rivaled only by Keith Hernandez, has used Twitter to have some fun with a teammate. After threatening to reprimand fellow pitcher Robert Gsellman for claiming the title of fastest pitcher, in an interview, he followed through.

Gsellman took to Twitter to ask Syndergaard for his Xbox privileges back after Syndergaard took them away (presumably for claiming the mantle of fastest pitcher). For the record, Syndergaard is a strict parent, as not only did he refuse to return the Xbox, he threated to ban Gsellman from the iPad as well. I’d recommend Gsellman not talk back to Syndergaard again. It doesn’t appear to have a way of ending well for him

Syndergaard is somewhat kinder to his fans on Twitter than his teammates. He recently restored following privileges to a fan who had previously been blocked by the star for a year. He did, however, give the fan a warning in the process.

Moral of the story: Don’t try to out-Twitter Syndergaard. It can’t be done. Unless you’re getting the newspaper with your cat.
