Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard isn't too keen on Blooper, the Braves new mascot.
The Braves unveiled the newest member of their team Saturday at Chop Fest in Atlanta with CF Ender Inciarte there to pull the lever to make Blooper come alive.
Syndergaard, though, showed his displeasure of Blooper on Twitter.

Blooper has some competition with Mr. Met and the Philly Phanatic being two of the most iconic mascots in the MLB, let alone the NL East.

On behalf of Mets fans everywhere, we agree with you, Noah. I'm not afraid of mascots like Noah has said he is, and still -- "no" is pretty much the only word to describe this.
As grateful as I am that the Braves are no longer using Mr. Met as inspiration for their mascot, we truly don't need another Philly Phanatic in the mix. You can't deny the similarities.
We've already seen Syndergaard go after the Philly Phanatic before a game at Citizens Bank Park -- stealing the Phanatic's ATV. Will we see him go after this new Philly Phanatic-looking Braves mascot, too? Go get him, Noah!
