Warning: Story contains coarse language

Noah Syndergaard isn't happy about a scheduling change that's moved a New York Mets game against the Los Angeles Dodgers from Sunday afternoon to the prime-time slot that night.

"Hey MLB, ESPN whose dumb fucking idea was it to change tomorrow's game to a night game when we're traveling to the West Coast after," the Mets right-hander wrote in his Instagram story. "Won't get in until Monday morning. Take on first-place (San Francisco) Giants later that evening. Brilliant!"

Syndergaard, who hasn't played this season while recovering from Tommy John surgery and elbow inflammation, said the Dodgers get a raw deal out of the last-minute change too.

"Wow. The Dodgers don't even get an off day Monday. This is cruel," the 28-year-old added.

Los Angeles returns home to face the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night after playing a three-game series in Queens.

The Mets just started a brutal 13-game stretch against the Dodgers and Giants, the National League's top two teams. New York dropped the first contest in extra innings Friday.
