The Mets announced that they placed pitcher Noah Syndergaard on the disabled list with hand, foot and mouth disease. It is believed he picked up the virus interacting with kids at his baseball camp.

Syndergaard didn’t seem too worried about the news. He even poked fun at traveling with the team with a pretty funny tweet.

Syndergaard’s illness sums up the Mets season perfectly. They need to call in someone to lift the curse from their organization. The curse is so strong it’s even taken out the chosen one, Tim Tebow.
Mets’ minor-league OF Tim Tebow broke the hamate bone in his right hand swinging the bat this weekend and is scheduled to have surgery Tuesday and is now likely out for the season, per MLB source. #sticktobasketball
