New York Mets ace Noah Sindergaard downplayed a report that he was "alive" because he had to throw himself at hunter Wilson Ramos during his start on Sunday and said his bad parting with Ramos was "on" me."
The New York Post reported on Monday that Syndergaard had confronted manager Mickey Calloway and general manager Brody Van Waghein on Sunday's decision and asked the team to release him to another hunter.
"The whole idea that we have 'alive' – – or I was alive – was a completely false conversation," Syndergaard told reporters on Tuesday. "We had a very cordial and adult conversation on the subject.
" As far as Wilson is concerned, nothing but respect for the man and that does not change our relationship … he breaks it down … every day, I have utmost respect for him . My only major concern was simply having an open dialogue with (the) front office and coaching staff. "
Syndergaard has a 5.09 ERA throw to Ramos in 1
Syndergaard said on Tuesday that "there is no question" with whom he is being caught.
it's just that it's all up to me. I'm just trying to find the answer, "Sindergaard said." There's a certain factor, there's a connection – a symbiotic connection, which (the boilers and the hunters) can own and everything is comfortable for you there. "
Syndergaard could be a free agent after the 2021 season. Ramos signed a two-year, $ 19 million contract as one of Van Wagain's acquisitions for free agents in his first season after moving from agent to the front in New York
Van Vagenen said on Monday that he respected Syndergaard for sharing his feelings.
"We listened to him, he understands our thought process that there may be other captures to catch him," GM said in his first year. "Different from this one earlier in the season and we will continue to make these assessments every day, which gives us a chance to win."
