The New York Mets took another significant push in their rotation.
Last night, Max Scherzer was forced out of the game at the top of the sixth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The 0-1 slider spells his defeat to Albert Pujols when he called the medical staff, signaling to them that he could not continue pitching.
The Mets are now holding their breath as they wait for their experienced Tekker update.
New York City newspapers are now fearing the worst, and the Mets have tweeted a screenshot of the newspaper’s headline about the early departure of insider Anthony Dicomo Scherzer.

This is bad news for the Mets, who have already lost Jacob DeGrom and Tyler Megil.
And it turns out that the editors of the New York City newspaper hit the panic button.
Hitting a pitcher is never a good thing, and the Mets took a bad break against the Cardinals last night.
Mets fans are accustomed to a lot of misfortune, but here they have more and there is a very good chance of hitting Sherza’s injured list.
In one of the screenshots, there is a slight ambiguity about the possible severity of the injury, where it is mentioned that Sherza does not consider the injury to be serious.
However, side injuries are devastating for any pitcher.
The Cardinals can prove it for themselves, Jack Flaherty lost for a significant amount of time last year due to a slash injury and in 2018 Michael Watcher had the same problem.
But in New York, fans and newspaper editors fear the worst and some more Mets are ready to heartbreak.
