Noah Syndergaard held a shirtless media session after a flame-throwing Spring Training debut
Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard made his Spring Training debut on Monday in a matchup with the Astros -- and to say he pitched well wouldn't do it justice.
For two scoreless frames, Syndergaard was a beast on the mound, hitting triple-digits on more than one occasion. At least 11 times, in fact. Eleven. That makes changeups all the more devastating, as Jose Altuve found out the hard way:

That's midseason form, let alone first-outing-of-Spring-Training form. That's the work of a man with the utmost confidence, the type of confidence that also motivates you to lead postgame interview scrums without wearing a shirt ... by request:
