East and west coast meat was a thing in the ’90s, but it looks like it’s alive and well in 2023.

Noah Syndergaard recently signed a one-year deal to head west and join the Angels, this after seemingly turning down the Mets’ qualifying offer in the process.

That decision seemed to infuriate New York’s (retired) sports pope and former WFAN radio host Mike Francesa, who took to Twitter to give some unsolicited and unsolicited views on Syndergaard and the Mets:

“The Mets are better off without Syndergaard. In case you haven’t noticed, they’ve been without him for years,” Frances tweeted.

French is right about one thing: The Mets have been without Syndergaard for a few years, as “Thor” has been battling injuries since 2019, pitching only innings, both in 2023, during that span.

In any case, the pitcher did not take French’s words kindly, instead expressing his own ill will in a reply:

“Damn, I didn’t know you were still alive. Congratulations,” Syndergaard replied.

Not to be outdone, Francesa kept the beef alive, proving his truly exaggerated opinion of himself, comparing his dominance of more than three decades to Syndergaard’s legitimate athletic prowess on the field:

“I competed every day for 35 years (and won) in my chosen profession in the largest city in the world. Noah complained and ran away,” French replied in a tweet.

Finally, Syndergaard delivered the final blow, dropping the hammer on French after the incongruous comparison:

“The only thing you’ve ever won is being an opportunist who hates the gas bag Mets. All you’ve done is talk and scatter toxic garbage for a run. Congratulations again honey, you’re doing great,” he tweeted .

Syndergaard finished his career with the Mets with a 3.32 ERA and a 2.92 FIP in 121 games (718 innings) over six injury-plagued seasons with the New York NL.

French ended her radio career as New York’s Numbah 1, eventually ending up with a bad audience loss to “The Michael Kay Show,” the ESPN Radio New York show in 2019.

If there is one thing that is evident, it is that French, the member of the Radio Hall of Fame, still has her fastball. The Angels will hope Syndergaard has theirs, too.
