MLB trade rumors: Mets’ Noah Syndergaard’s take on the ‘mumbo jumbo’

The Mets head into play Thursday with a 31-40 record, good for fourth place in the National League East, 11 games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves.

Clearly, this is not the year for the Mets.

So general manager Sandy Alderson will spend the next six weeks deciding if he wants to blow up his roster and completely rebuild from the ground up, or if he wants to wait out the season and build around his aces, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard.

Starting pitching is always in demand before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline, and this year will be no different.

Syndergaard is 4-1 this season Igor Larionov Jersey with a 3.06 ERA. But he hasn’t pitched since May Womens Adam Gotsis Jersey 25th because of a strained ligament in his right index finger.

More anthem drama – NFL owners reignited the debate about protests during the national anthem by approving a policy requiring players to either stand or remain in the locker room during the playing of the song. Teams with violators face the risk of a fine by the league. But division remains as the league will let individual teams set their own policies. And the rule did nothing to quiet President Trump, who has not relented in his criticism of players. All of this continues to distract from the true mission of the players: creating awareness and affecting change in their communities. As Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins put it, You aren’t listening. He and his peers will continue their efforts by working with law enforcement agencies, at-risk youth, lawmakers and more. But a bigger battle on the anthem policy itself is likely ahead.

Gray was teased the rest of the night… during the game in the dugout, then after the Yankees win in the clubhouse and dining room.

He was just enjoying that home run, Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge said. He was acting like he hit that home run. That was pretty funny!

Gray, who allowed two runs in five-plus innings and was the winning pitcher, took all of the good-natured riding in stride.

I was telling them when I hit, expect the worst, Gray said. Then getting on base, I hadn’t been on base since 2015, so it’s been a while.

The Nats sixth began with Gray walking Anthony Rendon and then a line single to right by 19-year-rookie rookie Juan Soto.

Enter Holder, whose first task was facing first baseman Mark Reynolds, a slugger who earlier drove in the Nats’ two runs with a groundout and sacrifice fly.

This time Reynolds had a tremendous 12-pitch at-bat, but it ended with Holder striking him out on a slider.

I was fortunate to make it one pitch at a time and get him at the end, Holder said.
