Whoa. New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard is simply not having it. He fires back at the media with a complete vengeance.
Score another major point for social media. The new-age world continues to bring humans closer together (pour an immense amount of sarcasm on top of that last line).
After one of the tougher Mets losses of this season, there was a pretty stark difference between losing pitcher Chris Mazza, who stood in front of his locker and answered every question, and starter Noah Syndergaard, who bolted the clubhouse without answering any.

Syndergaard started the Mets marathon 16-inning 3-2 loss in San Francisco against the Giants on Thursday night. He pitched well, tossing seven innings of one-run ball while head-up against southpaw Madison Bumgarner.
Apparently, Mazza hung around to answer the tough questions while Syndergaard was nowhere to be found.
On Friday, mighty Thor responded.
This is what you go with after a tough 16 inning marathon loss? Anthony, I have been nothing but respectful and professional with you over the years. If you had issue w me, talk to me in person like a man. This is below you, you’ve changed our relationship in 1 tweet. Congrats

By the time it was all said and done, the clock was seen well past 2:30 a.m. ET. It was a tough one for the New York NL club looking for its fifth-straight victory.
Syndergaard was spotted hanging around the dugout well after he was relieved. Many starting pitchers have skipped out entirely after a start. They hit the showers and disappear at times. It’s a common occurrence steeped in tradition.
Perhaps Syndergaard’s greatest gripe holds true; the idea DiComo used Twitter to get his point across instead of talking with the righty face-to-face leaves a lot to be desired.
Nevertheless, again, Twitter wins the day while the human race experiences overcommunication without the personal touch.
Noah Syndergaard’s New York Mets will look to get back on the right track on Friday night when Jacob deGrom takes the ball from manager Mickey Callaway. First pitch from San Francisco comes your way at 10:15 p.m. ET.
Have your style of caffeine ready to go at a moment’s notice.
