Not feeling the Cuse.
If Noah Syndergaard had his way, the Mets would not be going to Syracuse.
Before they return home from their spring training in Port St. Lucie, the Mets are reportedly stopping off in Syracuse to do a bit of promoting.
The organization is debuting its new Triple-A team this season in Syracuse, and they’re holding a workout there this week in an attempt to stir up interest in the new club.
Syndergaard told reporters on Sunday that he thinks the trip is a horrible idea.

“I don’t know whose idea that was, but it’s not a smart one,” Syndergaard said. “I don’t think that’s conducive for winning ballgames, really — that much travel. I mean, I’m sure the amenities in Syracuse aren’t the best for a major league baseball team to go up there and have one last workout before the regular season starts, but those kinds of decisions are above my pay grade.

Syndergaard definitely isn’t shy about sharing his opinion. He also sounded off about Jacob deGrom extension talks.

New Yorkers have to respect that.
