Stop us if you've heard this before in 2019, but there appears to be a bit of turmoil formulating in the New York Mets clubhouse.

All season long, Noah Syndergaard has been stern in his opinions about the Amazins' front office not pairing him up with his preferred catchers. Well, all of that emotion came to a head after his latest implosion on the bump over the weekend.

Pitching to Wilson Ramos (again) on Sunday against the Phillies, Thor lasted just five innings, giving up 4 runs on 6 hits, upping his ERA on the year to 4.06. Following the outing, Thor reportedly confronted GM Brodie Van Wagenen irate about the predicament, per the New York Post.

There's no doubting that Syndergaard has been more outspoken than we'd like this campaign, and his inability to keep his opinion to himself as oft enraged the Queens faithful.

However, the 27-year-old flamethrower has a thorough point here. In 92 innings with Ramos behind the dish, Syndergaard has logged a rancid 5.09 ERA. In 66 innings with backup Tomas Nido, he's posted a 2.45 clip. Further, the former All-Star made his first start with Rene Rivera behind the plate last Sunday, and he spun seven shutout innings in a dub against the Nationals.

It's worth noting that Ramos just had a 26-game hitting streak snapped last week, so Brodie and Mickey Callaway were probably prioritizing his offensive contributions over his game management prowess.

But when you consider the other talents in the Mets lineup capable of producing runs -- Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil, and Michael Conforto (among others) -- giving the vet catcher a day off to avoid exasperating one of your aces, not to mention getting the best out of him, seemed like the more knowledgable avenue to travel down.

Then again, we are talking about the Mets.
