Noah Syndergaard and why he's not a lock to succeed

Yeah, he has a ton of potential. The thing is, he only pitched in LowA ball this year. Here is a list of players that had similar age 20 seasons in Low A ball. For all of you guys out there who love K's, this list is sorted by K%. Some very good names, some ugly ones. To all of you Mets fans, have faith but don't expect immediate dominance. Be patient and don't expect Doc Gooden. You may get Hiawatha Terrell Wade. If I would widen this list it would include Josh Beckett and Johnny Cueto as well. There is a chance he becomes very good. The same was expected of Troy Patton too.

  1. I'm way late on this one, but 2012 was Syndergaard's age 19 season, not 20. :)
