ESPN is reporting that Noah Syndergaard and the Angels have agreed on a 1/$21 deal. Syndergaard showed how grateful he really was to get the QO by becoming one of the first big free agents to switch teams. If you didn’t think Syndergaard was worth the money for a QO – how do you wrap your head around a team paying $2.6 million more and sacrificing their second draft pick?
Did anyone think that Syndergaard would be on another team in 2022? And how does having two additional high picks – the second coming if/when Michael Conforto signs elsewhere – change the Mets’ thoughts on signing a free agent this year with the QO attached?
