Rick Porcello apologizes to Mets’ fans: ‘I’m sorry that we couldn’t have done better for you’

While it is true that the New York Mets severely underperformed expectations this year by failing to qualify for the playoffs, it is also true that their pitching depth was basically evaporated at one point of the season. Noah Syndergaard was lost to Tommy John surgery in March and Marcus Stroman decided to opt out of the season because of COVID-19. Also, Michael Wacha, Steven Matz, Jacob deGrom and even replacement David Peterson (who has now won a spot in the team’s plans for the future) missed additional time with injury.

The one starter in the original Mets’ rotation that didn’t have any injury issues was Rick Porcello.
