Noah Syndergaard thinks that Gritty is a terrible mascot

With their Spring Training officially wrapped up, the Mets were scheduled to fly from Florida to Syracuse, N.Y., on Monday night to hold an open workout for fans at the Carrier Dome. The team eventually made it, but not before mechanical issues delayed their plane on the tarmac for a few hours.
