The Phillies acquired Syndergaard from the slumping Los Angeles Angels at the trade deadline to bolster their starting rotation.
The Phillies are right in the thick of the postseason chase and are about to get a big boost, with Bryce Harper, who has been on the injured list since June, close to returning.
Syndergaard is pretty excited about having the reigning National League MVP back, and he had a perfect quote about the situation that Phillies fans can all relate to.
Noah Syndergaard said he's been on cloud nine with the Phillies and the thought of Bryce Harper returning next week "makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up."

Phils About To Be Dangerous
The Phillies are about to be super dangerous.
If they weren’t already, then things are about to get fun in the City of Brotherly Love.
Syndergaard certainly thinks so.
The lineup will get its best run producer back, which means more run support for pitchers like Syndergaard.
Harper will be back next week and will definitely energize the team and the Phillies fanbase.
If Syndergaard was having fun in Philadelphia, he’s going to have a lot more fun with the reigning NL MVP back.
The fans can certainly relate to that feeling.
They’ve had to sit and watch this team without Harper for about two months.
They’ve played well, but without Harper, the team has somewhat of a different look.
Harper’s return should help the Phillies out in the Wild Card race.
They currently hold the second spot, but with Harper back, they could look to pad their lead over the San Diego Padres and secure their spot in the postseason.
The Phillies will soon be complete, and the rest of the baseball world is going to be put on notice.
