The scene was Game 3 of the 2015 World Series. Noah Syndergaard went high and (kind of) tight to Alcides Escobar to kick off the game. The Royals were not happy, and chief among the irritated was third baseman Mike Moustakas.
It was postgame that Syndergaard made his now-famous, “60 feet, six inches,” remark, which had to be at least partially directed at Moustakas.
Fast forward two-and-a-half years later and it seems like Thor hasn’t forgotten about their beef.
Moustakas signed a one-year, $6.5 million deal with the Royals last week, roughly $12 million less than he could have made had he just accepted Kansas City's qualifying offer. And on Saturday evening, this popped up on my Instagram feed:
Either Noah is just finding the humor in all this: a crummy situation for the players underscored by Moose’s situation and punctuated by a picture of him yelling at Syndergaard. Or...there’s still some hard feelings. Either way, God bless social media.
