New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard isn't expected to be healthy and ready to return to the diamond until at least June as he continues to rehab from Tommy John surgery. That doesn't mean he doesn't enjoy sitting down and watching the game he loves, though.

However, Syndergaard was unable to watch his own team's home opener due to blackout restrictions. Instead, he had to tune in to a Pittsburgh Pirates game and it didn't take long for him to take a hilarious shot at the current state of that franchise.

The Pirates have gone through some tough seasons as of late posting a combined 88-134 record over the last two seasons. Pittsburgh hasn't made the playoffs since 2015 and has already gotten off to an abysmal 1-6 start in 2021.

Syndergaard has been a solid starting pitcher for the Mets ever since he debuted back in 2015. He has a 47-30 career record and has posted an ERA under 3.25 in four of his last five seasons. It is one thing for the fans to put an underperforming team on blast like this, but we hardly ever see it from the players themselves.

Baseball is a sport in which any team can win on any given day, so the Pirates may have some added motivation next time they go up against the 28-year-old Mets starter. At this point, it's safe to say that Syndergaard isn't too worried about that.
