There was a theft at Citizens Bank Park on Monday night.
If the FBI gets called in to retrieve Tom Brady's shirt, this seems to be a much more serious matter. Mets pitcher (and criminal) Noah Syndergaard picked a perfect spot before pulling off the heist of the century.
We'll break down the theft frame by frame:
It looks like Syndergaard's teammate Curtis Granderson is his accomplice in this crime. Granderson is stretching pregame and the Phillie Phanatic noticed his irregular form and decided to help.
While the Phanatic is distracted by Granderson, Syndergaard is ready to strike.
The Phanatic is completely consumed with helping straighten out Granderson's form. Just look at that focus.
By the time the Phanatic turns to realize what's happening, it's too late. The Phanatic is a skilled stretcher, but simply doesn't have the catch-up speed to chase down his ATV as Syndergaard speeds away.
Eventually, Syndergaard puts too much space between him and the Phanatic as he speeds away. Unfortunately, our friend from the Galapagos can't stay upright in pursuit.
Syndergaard is still at large. The Philadelphia Police are on the case, we assume.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).
Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).
And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.
The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.
Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?
So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.
Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.

More on the Eagles
If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.
Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.
It will melt your heart.
If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.
It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.
Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
