Noah Syndergaard is more insufferable on twitter than Alexandra Ocasio Cortez. I'm sure there are thousands of people who actually enjoy his banter but to those who care about the Mets success as a team, it's brutal. You are 0-1. The Mets are 5-2. You account for half of the losses directly and you got a ND giving up 4 runs in 6 innings while the offense went off for 11. The reason people love Jake is not only because he dominates on the hill but also doesn't create distractions off the field. Noah should focus more on getting batters out and not giving up so many fucking home runs rather than his next tweet or where his hair tie is.
PS - Noah posted an instagram today referencing Teddy Roosevelt's "Man in the Arena" speech.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
Everything I am writing plays 100% into his message of "fuck off haters, I'm out here doing while you are critiquing" but I don't give a shit. Back it up on the hill and no one will care. Give up 4 runs while having the nastiest stuff in baseball and the social media bullshit becomes a lot less funny.
