Are things on the verge of spilling over even more for the New York Mets as they play their way out of the NL Playoff race? It’s a real possibility.
Early on Monday it was noted that ace starter Noah Syndergaard approached the Mets’ brass about his unhappiness when it comes to pitching to catcher Wilson Ramos.
“Noah Syndergaard, simmering all season about his inability to move Mets brass to line him up with his preferred catchers, became livid over the weekend when he had to throw again to Wilson Ramos rather than Rene Rivera or Tomas Nido,” Joel Sherman and Keven Kernan of the NY Post reported.
Pitchers having preferred catchers is nothing new. Remember, Greg Maddux having his own catcher in that of Eddie Perez during his Atlanta Braves days? It’s a similar situation with that of Syndergaard.
