New York Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard takes one last shot at the Cleveland Indians as the season comes to a close.
Noah Syndergaard may have not had the best year on the mound. However, his Twitter fingers are still strong.
Back in August, the Cleveland Indians Twitter account called the New York Mets a “fringe postseason team.” This came after the Indians dropped two consecutive games to the Mets. It was supposed to be a motivational tweet before the team’s final game of that current series. Syndergaard responded to that tweet after the Mets swept Cleveland, saying “We got some FRINGE for you right here, we call it a SWEEP in NYC. #LFGM.”
Now, Thor’s taking his last shots.
Oh and @Indians
Looks like we were both fringe playoff teams 🤷♂️

This comes after both the Mets and Indians missed out on the 2019 postseason. New York has been out since last Wednesday after the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Cincinnati Reds. The Mets, at the time, needed to win out and the Brewers to lose out.
The Indians, on the other hand, finished 3.0 games back in the American League Wild Card race and 8.0 games behind the AL Central-winning Minnesota Twins.
New York, despite not making the postseason, has a lot to look forward to in 2020. They have a versatile lineup with a great amount of young talent along with a starting rotation that has the potential to be dominant.
However, with this amount of expertise on the team, they should’ve been able to crack the five-team threshold in the National League this year and make the playoffs. The fact that they didn’t means manager Mickey Callaway could be on his way out as early as this week.
