New York Mets Investigates New Pitcher’s Homophobic Tweet

Through a recent trade, the New York Mets recently picked up right-handed pitcher Noah Syndergaard, rated one of Toronto’s top pitching prospects. Unfortunately, he’s homophobic as well, tweeting last week, “@DMarze89 nice crocs fag lol.” The tweet has been deleted and the Mets claim to be investigating the full context of the tweet, though it’s unclear what context could possibly redeem its offensiveness.
