If the New York Mets decide to trade Noah Syndergaard, these three teams are possible landing spots for Thor.
With the month of July approaching, the New York Mets are well under .500 for the year. Rumors are beginning to swirl as to what they will do come the July 31st trade deadline. Each game seems to paint a clearer picture of the direction they will go.
The odds that they catch anyone vying for a playoff spot within the next few weeks are slim. Because of this, they may want to think about unloading whatever trade pieces they can. This includes Noah Syndergaard.
It’s a no-brainer that the Mets biggest strength is starting pitching. If they want to set up a better future, this is the group they should trade from.
Fans may not like it, but dealing Syndergaard could get them a nice haul. As much as we would miss Thor’s long blonde hair blowing in the wind on a Citi Field mound, dealing him this summer may help the franchise out more than keeping him.
Rising Apple has already looked at potential landing spots for the team’s ace, Jacob deGrom. Another chip to dangle out there, it may be more believable that the Mets trade Syndergaard instead. One could argue that losing deGrom is a bigger blow to the franchise. Even though he’s older, deGrom has proven he is the top dog in the rotation.
Nevertheless, Syndergaard is a talented arm any team should want. Over the next few weeks, we should learn more about which teams think they need him most.
Let’s take a look at the three teams who make a lot of sense in a potential Syndergaard trade.
