And now Noah Syndergaard is on the DL

It’s a new season, with a new coaching staff, new trainers, and yet we still have the same old injury-plagued Mets. Noah Syndergaard is the latest player to find himself on the shelf.

Did the Mets forget to take away Ray Ramirez’s voodoo doll on the way out? I mean, come on already. This team just can’t catch a break. 

David Wright aside, the Mets have now placed the following players on the disabled list at some point this season:

  1. Noah Syndergaard
  2. Jacob deGrom
  3. Todd Frazier
  4. Yoenis Cespedes
  5. Anthony Swarzak
  6. Travis d’Arnaud
  7. Kevin Plawecki
  8. Jason Vargas
  9. Rafael Montero
  10. Dominic Smith
  11. Hansel Robles
  12. Juan Lagares
  13. A.J. Ramos
  14. Wilmer Flores 

Injuries are bound to happen. They will always be part of the game. They just shouldn’t be continuously THIS much a part of the game for the Mets.

For years we pinned it all on the training staff as the leading cause. Well, that scapegoat is gone now. Maybe it’s a higher power and god does indeed hate the Mets after all. 

Whatever the case may be, the Mets need Syndergaard back on the mound and they need it fast. Without the 1-2 combination of deGrom and Syndergaard things could fall completely off the rails in the same manner that it did just last season.

Get well soon, Noah.

The time is now to win, and you can’t risk having another manager learning on the fly holding them back. The Mets can’t miss with this hire and Beltran has to be on the high-risk list.
