Can the Houston Astros get the most out of Noah Syndergaard?
A similar sentiment could be said about the Houston Astros as stated with the Rangers. Another team from Syndergaard’s hometown state, he might need to travel a little further to see where the old Blockbuster he grew up visiting on Friday night. Still, it’s a much closer trip than where he currently is with the Mets.
The Astros managed to turn a lot of mediocre pitchers into stars or at least revitalize careers. We know now that it wasn’t all pixie dust. Video surveillance and maybe some sticky stuff played a factor as well.
Regardless of all of the funny stuff going on in Houston, they could have the need and desire to sign Syndergaard. The organization always seems to at least attempt to put together a winning club. This offseason, in their pursuit of adding to the roster, I expect the same plan.
Because they can offer Syndergaard an immediate opportunity to play competitive baseball, I do think he might have some interest. I think every Mets fan has believed that he would one day end up playing for a team in Texas. If the Rangers aren’t ready to buy, I expect the Astros to at least consider adding Thor’s thunderous arm to the rotation.
