After losing their fifth straight via the Atlanta Braves, we ask if it can get worse for the New York Mets. Noah Syndergaard takes the ball.

  • New York Mets (8-12)
  • Atlanta Braves (7-12)
  • NL, Thurs., Apr. 27, 1:10 p.m. ET, SNY
  • Citi Field, Queens, New York

Honestly, can it actually get any worse for the New York Mets? Now, after the smoke job at the hands of the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night, 8-2, it’s tough to imagine it can. Obviously, we know that it can, even if you did witness Robert Gsellman surrender a five-run top of the first inning at Citi Field last night.

Losers of five straight, the 8-12 Mets look to their ace, Noah Syndergaard, to play the role of stopper.

The good news is, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Mets pitching reinforcements are on their way back. Both Seth Lugo and Steven Matz are taking significant strides in returning to action.

“They have thrown so far without any discomfort, which is a good sign,” manager Terry Collins said before the Mets lost 8-2 to the Braves on Wednesday.

While we understand the Mets lineup is an all-or-nothing proposition (thanks to its incredible streakiness via power), watching New York’s pitching struggle this much is more than anybody can handle.
