As if this truly horrid New York Mets season has not been more pathetic enough, now we get word that ace starter Noah Syndergaard has been placed on the DL for the second time but foot and mouth disease of all things. Syndergaard contracted the ailment while taking part in a kids camp this past week but the hope is that he will miss only the minimum ten games. Be that as it may, this is now the third time Syndergaard has been on the DL three times in the last season-plus and so he is now more than earning the label of being injury prone. Throw in the fact Syndergaard seems like your classic Tommy John future victim and investing in him on a yearly basis is become an exercise you might want to start avoiding. In between all the injuries this season, Syndergaard has pitched to a splendid 2.89 ERA but an elevated 1.25 WHIP with 83 K in 74.2 IP. While he has pitched decently, it still has fallen short of expectations and added more negative storylines to a truly ugly Mets season.
