After news circulated on the New York Mets Noah Syndergaard pending lawsuit for his NYC apartment, he shared his side to the story. The original tale pitted him as the bag guy after he decided not to pay rent on his eight-month lease for his Tribeca apartment.

Syndergaard’s landlord says the Mets pitcher abandoned the apartment, refusing to pay for it. Since the season’s postponement, the city-wide shutdown, and Syndergaard’s Tommy John Surgery, there was no longer a need for him to live there. The landlord leaked the story then filed the $250,000 lawsuit against Syndergaard.
All About the Money
Syndergaard’s statement likely came with the guidance of the lawyers. His side makes it seem like the landlord just wanted to steal all the money he can from an All-Star athlete in the middle of a pandemic. But we should be aware that the details of the lease have not surfaced.
The lease could have been non-negotiable. If so, Syndergaard’s hands become tied if the landlord did not want to budge. There are still plenty of variables in this case, and there is a long road ahead for everyone involved. Between rehabbing his elbow and dealing with the case, it will be a busy summer for Thor.
