Even this Met has no idea what the Giants are thinking.
Noah Syndergaard struck out five batters across 5.2 scoreless innings and gave up only two hits with two walks in the Mets 2-1 win against the Astros on Wednesday. But his fourth spring training outing took a backseat to the stunning news of Odell Beckham Jr. getting traded to the Browns on Tuesday night.
“I don’t know what the Giants are doing. We’ll find out,” Syndergaard said. “He’s special.”
The Mansfield, TX. native said he surprisingly did not grow up as a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. If he had to pick, Syndergaard said he could be a Browns fan for a very Mets-like reason.
“I don’t really have a football allegiance. I like Baker Mayfield honestly. I like the way he competes and his mentality out there on the field,” Syndergaard said. “The Browns have sucked for so long that you can’t help but to root for them.”‘
The Giants stunned the football world by dealing star Beckham to the Browns for a first- and third-round draft pick in this years draft, along with safety Jabrill Peppers and guard Kevin Zeitler.
