Compared to past weeks, this week was a bit quieter in off-the-field Mets land. Noah Syndergaard, as usual, had most of the fun -- at least from the looks of it on social media.
We found out that Thor -- who is now private on Instagram -- not only enjoys Christmas, but is quite the fan of Elf as well. But who isn't?
He went to the tree in Rockefeller Center, quoting the film in his caption: "Well, there are some things you should know. First off, if you see gum on the street, leave it there. It isn't free candy. Second, there are, like, thirty Ray's Pizzas. They all claim to be the original. But the real one's on 11th. And if you see a sign that says 'Peep Show,' that doesn't mean that they're letting you look at the new toys before Christmas."
Noah, I'm happy to quote Elf with you whenever you'd like. Or, first we'll make snow angels for two hours, and then we'll go ice skating, and then we'll eat a whole roll of Toll-House cookie dough as fast as we can...
In the spirit of the season, Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith went Christmas shopping with some Queens children, an annual tradition held by the Mets.

Speaking of Smith, he's gone from hanging with Jay-Z to hanging with Nick Jonas. Who will be next?
In "news that makes you a bit confused," Jordany Valdespin randomly apologized to Terry Collins...
... and Prince Fielder was photographed wearing a Mets jersey.
And finally, we received further confirmation that David Wright is alive, as tweeted out by Utah Jazz Guard Donovan Mitchell. Also, let's note that Josh Satin and Wright evidently hang out.
I grew up around these guys watched them work and put the effort in and become great baseball players... now to have them watch me play as a pro is crazy! #DavidWright @joshsatin pic.twitter.com/TWpc64WnH3- Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) December 1, 2017
Oh, and the next day, Mitchell went on to become the first NBA rookie to score 40 points since 2011.
