While the pain is still there from getting shut out in the wild card game against San Francisco back in October, it was relived through MLB.com’s commercial, featuring Thor himself.
In an emotional call to it’s viewers, Major League Baseball took the hurt and pain that fans and players go through, and had Syndergaard speak to them through his own tweets, following the loss to the Giants.
In a pretty cool twist, the producers of the commercial spoke to not only much younger fans, but to the social media platform. Using a social media website like Twitter, that blue bird logo speaks to a lot of people.
Knocked in the past for being “old and conservative,” the commercial was definitely a call to action in regards to younger fans. Using one of the top pitchers in baseball who isn’t even 25 years old yet is just another element of what Major League Baseball was attempting to do.
On the biggest advertising night in the world, the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard took center stage. For a pitcher who has been dominant since his rookie season, the sky is the limit for Syndergaard. Already being declared the opening day starter by manager Terry Collins, expectations will be high yet again this season.
With a healthy rotation coming back into the fold, New York looks to have the top pitching staff in all of baseball. They have four legitimate starters with ace-type stuff. Look for Syndergaard to finally crack the 15-win mark this season, with a chance to possibly hit 20.
