Austin, on facing Syndergaard: "It's going to be a long night. For him."

He didn't have the best season, but that's some badass shit from Tyler Austin in Game 1 of last night's Double-A playoffs, a game the Thunder won 6-5. Not only did he talk trash about the opposing starting pitcher, top Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard, he backed it up with a 3-5 night at the plate with 2 doubles off Syndergaard and 2 RBI. That's the kind of stuff prospect evaluations don't measure and that's why I'm still on board the Tyler Austin bandwagon.
Come out, talk some trash, whoop some ass, and raise a little hell. If you're down with Tyler Austin, give me a hell yeah!
