Noah is down at camp, and is all in on Brodie Van Wagenen. A bearded Syndergaard reported a little early, as players tend to do, and is echoing Brodie's claim that the Mets will "definitely" be the team to beat in the NL East.
Noah: It’s On. My Column https://t.co/o3C0EZfygu— Kevin Kernan (@WheresKernan) February 6, 2019
If you missed the announcement a few days ago, Brodie hit me up last week about the Subway Series. He marked his calendar down for July 2nd at Citi Field to join The 7 Line Army. He wants the whole experience. Tailgate and all. Should be something.
Noah told Kevin Kernan from the New York Post: “I think Brodie is the GM baseball has been longing for. It’s really cool seeing him in the batting cage the other day and then making the announcement that he is going to sit in The 7 Line [Army] section during the Subway Series. I was like, ‘Hell, I wish I could do that. If I’m not pitching that day, I want to join him."
Super far fetched idea, but sounds great on paper. The pitching staff did sit with the kids last summer during the Little League Classic, but that was obviously a special circumstance.
Awesome. Mets pitchers are in the stands with kids for the Little League Classic. https://t.co/9Y8Sam6TY1— Brad Galli (@BradGalli) August 20, 2018
If you wanna bend the rules a bit, navigate the capacity crowd, and don't mind taking a billion selfies, come on down. I'm sure The General will let you lead the "HEEEEEEEEEE..... STRUCK! HIM! OUT!" chant. Bring your hammer.
If you are pitching that day though, how bout a no-no? Cool.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
