As the season continues, and the Mets fall further out of contention in the National League East, Noah Syndergaard figures to get a lot of interest on the trade market.  One of the teams expect to make a run at the flamethrowing right-hander is the crosstown rival Yankees.

Via The Sports Daily:

The Mets have been in a massive slump, dropping 15 of their last 22 games, and now the fan base is starting to panic. Even though there are a lot of games left, the rumor mill is starting to swirl around the Mets again, courtesy of SNY’s Andy Martino. Martino is reporting that the New York Yankees are expected to pursue starting pitching later this season, and that they are expected to check in with the Mets about Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler if the Mets are selling.

These are the type of rumors New York sports media lives off of.  There’s no way the Mets ever trade a guy like Noah Syndergaard to the Yankees, but it should provide a few days of content for the local media.
