Noah Syndergaard's bat split into pieces as he swung ... and missed

For players on teams that will not be participating in the postseason, Sunday marked the last time they'll suit up and play the game in an official capacity before Spring Training starts up in a few months.
It's also, apparently, the chance for bats that are totally over it to just pack it in and head right into the offseason themselves.
In his final game of the season on Sunday against the Marlins, the Mets' Noah Syndergaard swung at a pitch and missed ... but his bat separated from itself and broke into pieces as he began his swing -- which, again, he missed. What?

That bat just did not want to participate anymore. What a betrayal.
