Even during the quarantine, Mets fans get the short end of the stick as Noah Syndergaard needs Tommy John surgery which will cost him this season and some of next.

By the time games resume the minor injuries to JD Davis and Michael Conforto would be long behind us, Cespedes would probably be in game shape and any lingering issues Dellin Betances had would be a thing of the past, but alas it was not to be. In terms of this season (whenever it’s safe and responsible to play, no rush) the loss of Noah is a big one but probably one that can be overcame.
