Mets troll themselves over worst loss in franchise history to Nationals

The New York Mets found themselves on the wrong side of history on Wednesday night after a 25-4 shellacking at the hands of the Washington Nationals. The humiliating defeat marked the worst loss in franchise history. So bad was the beat-down that the Mets felt compelled to troll themselves on Twitter.

Twitter of course was on fire as social media wisenheimers gleefully mocking and ridiculing the woeful Mets. While the team does deserve some semblance of credit for owning up to the savage nature of the horrific performance, there are some social media dispatches that merit noting as well, especially those from major media outlets.

Perhaps the best one comes from MLB’s Cut4, who noted how the Nats stormed out to an incomprehensible 19-0 lead early on in the whupping.

And then there was the always reliable New York Post, well-known for bringing the pun-tastic snark when needed.

Saving the best for last, the Mets’ social media department either explicitly acknowledged what the team’s fans may need after suffering through such a horrible night — not to mention the prospects for the rest of the season — or unintentionally delivered a tweet with perfect timing.

Cheers, indeed. If wine was ever needed…

Game. Set. Match. Either way.
