Though Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard is currently rehabbing in Florida after Tommy John surgery, he has some legal troubles to deal with back in New York City. The man nicknamed “Thor” went on Twitter late Saturday night to blast a landlord who is currently suing him over the rent for a $27,000-a-month Tribeca penthouse.

The New York Post is reporting that Syndergaard is being sued for attempting to break the lease contract that he signed on the penthouse in February, before the coronavirus pandemic took hold in the United States. He has paid rent up until now, but offered the landlord two months’ rent upfront — $54,000 — to break the lease and allow him to re-rent the place.

This is where the problems started. The landlord is suing Syndergaard for $250,000, which is the full value of the remaining months on the lease contract, which was for eight months total.

That was a bridge too far for the pitcher, whose Twitter post laid out the situation from his end:

With Syndergaard stuck in Florida for the duration of the pandemic, if not longer, while he rehabs, he will likely never step foot in the Tribeca penthouse at all. Considering his offer to pay for two empty months while the apartment finds a new tenant, as well as Syndergaard’s assertion that the landlord leaked the story to the media, this saga could take some more twists and turns once housing courts open back up.
