Noah Syndergaard gets into heated Twitter feud with Trevor Bauer after snubbing New York for Dodgers

Trevor Bauer Noah Syndergaard Mets Dodgers

The offseason of veteran pitcher Trevor Bauer was met with heavy criticism after he chose to join the Los Angeles Dodgers over the New York Mets where he inked a three-year, $102 million contract last week.

Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard then engaged in a public exchange with the 2020 NL CY Young winner on Twitter. The Texas native reposted photos of himself along with his fellow Mets pitcher in Robert Gsellman in spring training while also taking a shot at Bauer.

The jab was referring to a previous incident where Bauer unintentionally advertised Mets merchandise on his personal website hours before he made his offseason decision. Despite hinting at potentially joining the New York-based club, Bauer then took a u-turn and proceeded to sign with the Dodgers to the dismay of the Mets faithful. He eventually apologized for the mishap and decided to donate $10,000 to four New York charities instead.

Syndergaard also found himself at fault as he previously got into a heated exchange with a handful of fans who reacted to his shirtless photos in training. Bauer kept the receipts and used the aggressive replies by Syndergaard to fire back at him afterward.

The 2016 All-Star didn’t let things slip away that easily as he eventually replied to Bauer’s allegations with a GIF coupled with a caption ‘keep digging’.

Bauer made sure that he had the last laugh between the two of them as he poked fun of Syndergaard and the Mets who finished the 2020 season with a dismal 26-34 record.

The 30-year-old pitcher is coming off an impressive 2020 campaign where he was hailed as the NL Era Leader, bagged the NL CY Young award, and earned a selection to the All-MLB First Team. Trevor Bauer’s offseason didn’t have the best of starts but he can certainly make up for it by providing significant contributions for the Dodgers in their bid to repeat as World Series champions in the upcoming 2021 season.
