Remember when the New York Mets had Noah Syndergaard pitching for them every fifth day? It feels like ages since we saw him daring batters to meet him 60 feet, 6 inches away.
His last start with the team, the season finale on September 29, 2019, occurred in a much different world where pandemics were a thing of science fiction and Syndergaard would always be in orange and blue.
