Anthony Dicomo’s tweet following the New York Mets 16 inning loss to the San Francisco Giants has rubbed Noah Syndergaard the wrong way.
The New York Mets 16 inning loss against the San Francisco Giants was a tough one to swallow.
They had just taken a 2-1 lead in the top of the 16th inning after a Pete Alonso solo home run. However, that lead wouldn’t last long, as the Mets’ last reliever available, Chris Mazza, was asked to go a second straight inning in which he, unfortunately, could not hold the lead.
Earlier in this game (which seemed like days ago), Noah Syndergaard pitched a gem, tossing seven innings of one-run ball.
Following the loss, Mets beat writer for MLB.com, Anthony DiComo, Tweeted this out:
Noah Syndergaard, obviously annoyed by DiComo’s Tweet, responded about nine hours later with this to say:
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen issues between a Mets player and a reporter this season. In late June, Mickey Callaway had some choice words for Newsday reporter Tim Healey following a tough loss to the Chicago Cubs. As that all transpired, Jason Vargas chimed in and made some threatening statements towards Healey.
This feud between DiComo and Syndergaard certainly is not even close to being on the level to that of Callaway and Vargas’ issue with Healey. However, Thor made it clear that this one Tweet has changed his relationship with DiComo.
To Syndergaard’s defense, was DiComo’s Tweet really necessary? It almost seems like a personal dig.
At the same time, it’s usually not a good look to leave the clubhouse without answering questions. To be fair, we do not know what was going on with Syndergaard and why he didn’t field questions.
This is certainly a difficult time for him with his name floating around in trade rumors.
Nonetheless, let’s hope these two are able to make amends because it’d be a shame if their relationship was completely tarnished because of one Tweet.
