Noah Syndergaard blocked this Mets fan on Twitter, but why?

Some folks have a quick fuse when it comes to the block button. Athletes are no different. When something goes wrong in a game, even the most beloved figures get trashed on the internet. That should just be expected at this point.

Twitter gives everyone a voice, and fans like to get in the ear of the local superstars. Of course it's not always going to be positive feedback. If you mess up, be prepared to hear about it. Or, just don't have Twitter if you can't take it. That's an option too. 

Not saying that all trolling should be tolerated. If someone gets malicious, threatening, racist or whatever, block away. But if it's just a fan saying "YOU BLEW IT!" don't be such a softie. 

Ok, so all that aside, big Mets fan Connor Jagemann from New Jersey was blocked by Noah. He says he has no idea why. Now unless he deleted some tweets, I really have no idea either. Noah really can't be this sensitive, but Connor reached out for my help.

If you search @connorjagemann and @noahsyndergaard together, not much comes up. Upon further review, this was the only thing I could see being borderline "offensive" to Noah's performance. 

It's no secret that Noah has had some trouble holding on runners. The Mets took a 9-0 L that day in 2016 with Syndergaard on the bump, and Diamondbacks starting pitcher Braden Shipley stole a bag early in the game. So, Connor told Noah and Rene to get their shit together. No harm there. Right?

Seems like a stretch as you read way worse on the internet, but maybe tension was extra high that day? Could this really be the Tweet that broke Thor's back? Not sure, but there's no other evidence of foul play. Connor has since been blocked.

That was a frustrating series for the Metsies. The last place Diamondbacks swept a 3 game series at Citi Field and stole 13 bases in the process. A then team record for the most in a series. Not sure if that's since been broken.

Hey Noah, now that a couple years have past. How bout ya give Connor here a second chance? He'll be at the game again tomorrow with his sign unless the ban gets lifted in time.


UPDATE: Well, that was quick...
