Mets hurler Noah Syndergaard has … um … matured significantly since he was in eighth grade.
Indeed, anything is possible.
We’re not here to pass judgment or discriminate, but to think that Syndergaard has developed into a 6’3″ flame-throwing co-co-co-ace of the upstart Mets is astonishing. He now throws 101 with a hammer curveball and undeniable presence on the mound.
He has set a Mets rookie record with 20 strikeouts in a single postseason, and that number will most certainly rise during his next turn through the rotation. The Cubs and the Dodgers haven’t been able to solve the man the world calls Thor.
So, here’s to growing up. Maybe you’ll throw 101 some day too.
