The New York Mets' trip to Syracuse on Tuesday is generating all kinds of buzz — but it's for all the wrong reasons.
Mets star pitcher Noah Syndergaard went public this weekend with his frustrations over the team's travel schedule — particularly the stop in Syracuse. The story wound up on the back page of The New York Post Monday morning.
Syndergaard called the trip “not something championship teams do.”
He was also asked if he's looking forward to visiting Syracuse, to which he responded "not even in the slightest bit."
The Mets fly from Florida into Syracuse Monday night and will be working out at the Carrier Dome from noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
“You would think we would go to New York to get like, as adults, our affairs in order, but no, we have to go to Syracuse first,” Syndergaard said.
Then the team flies to Washington D.C. on Thursday for Opening Day.
