Is Noah Syndergaard headed for Tommy John Surgery?

Today could be the last time we see Noah Syndergaard in uniform for 18 months or so.

It was weird, today at work I had this premonition that I needed to go watch Noah Syndergaard’s start. I began my day pretty early today so I gave myself a free pass and knocked off at about 2:00 so I could come home and see a bit of this flamethrower.

I don’t really like pitchers. I can count on two hands over the last 15 years the guys who I liked enough to actually make sure I’m around a television to see them pitch. Hitters, sure. But a pitcher has to bring something special.

Thor was beginning to give me that feeling of Pedro in 1999 or 2000 almost. I liked him that much. But it was weird that I was sitting at my desk when I had this urge to go see him throw.

So I did it. And sure enough, Syndergaard had the elbow issue today during his start and he’s not going to see a doctor. With the way things go with pitchers; and moreover, pitchers that I like, Syndergaard is going to follow this up with a visit to Dr. James Andrews and he’ll have Tommy John Surgery. We won’t see him for like 18 months.

This absolutely sucks. I think I’m going to be sick. I am sick. I can’t move.
