The Braves unveiled their new mascot Blooper to, let’s just say, mixed reviews.
Count Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard among the haters.
After the Braves debuted Blooper on Saturday at the team’s Chop Fest, Syndergaard turned to Twitter to express his disdain. He posted a video from the Fox Sports: Braves account of the unveiling with the simple comment: “Nope Nope Nope.”
Perhaps Syndergaard will feel differently when he sees Blooper in person? He won’t have to wait long. The Braves host the Mets in an early-season meeting, a four-game series April 19-22. The final game of the series, a Sunday afternoon game, has been dubbed as New Mascot Bobblehead Giveaway.
