Noah Syndergaard makes wrong kind of history in brutal start

Noah Syndergaard makes wrong kind of history in brutal start New York Mets ace Noah Syndergaard did not have a lot of help behind him during Wednesday’s important start against the Chicago Cubs. Some defensive miscues enabled Chicago to drop six runs in the first inning. Even then, Syndergaard himself was not good. The veteran yielded 10 runs (nine earned) in three innings of work. In doing so, Syndergaard became the first Mets pitcher to yield 10-plus runs in a start since Johan Santana back in 2010. Syndergaard's 10 runs allowed is the most by a Met since Johan Santana also allowed 10 on May 2, 2010— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) August 29, 2019 Given how bad some Mets teams have been since Santana’s tenure, this is an eye-opening sta

Michael Christopher “ Mickey ” Callaway (born May 13, 1975) is a former American professional baseball pitcher and the current manager of the New York Mets.

New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway has no plans to split up the Noah Syndergaard-Wilson Ramos battery despite the pitcher’s concerns.

Syndergaard is scheduled to start again Friday, and on Wednesday, Callaway said it’s likely that Ramos will be catching him. This comes despite Syndergaard’s issues working with Ramos — and the pitcher’s inferior ERA when the two are paired together.

The story erupted this week, with Syndergaard discussing his catcher preference with Mets brass. His ERA when throwing to backup Tomas Nido is roughly two-and-a-half runs lower than it is when pitching to Ramos.

Despite those talks, this isn’t a huge surprise. Callaway was pretty dismissive of Syndergaard’s concerns publicly. The manager wants to keep Ramos, a .298 hitter, in the lineup. Syndergaard will just have to deal with that.

More questionable decisions from Mickey Callaway don’t do desperate Mets any favors against Rockies.
DENVER — One would hope, this late in the season, we’re not still discussing questionable managerial decisions that had an impact on the outcome of a Mets game. Alas, with the season on the line, manager Mickey Callaway again made some head-scratching moves during the Mets’ 9-4 loss to the Rockies in the series opener on Monday. The Mets (77-73) dropped five games behind the last Wild Card spot with their third loss in four days. The Cubs (82-68) beat the Reds, 8-2, and the Brewers (81-69) downed the Padres, 5-1. With 12 games remaining in the regular season, the Mets have have limited opportunities to make up ground.
