Even The Mets had to laugh a little after a humiliating record defeat last night

A 25-4 loss in Washington keeps the Mets firmly on course for a 90-loss season.

IN A 2003 episode of ‘Friends’, Joey Tribbiani uttered the immortal line: “Let me stop you right there, the Mets suck.”

15 years later not much has changed. In fact, things have actually gotten worse as the New York Mets got completely destroyed 25-4 in a humiliating MLB match against the Washington Nationals last night.

The defeat was the biggest losing margin the Mets had ever registered in their entire 57-year franchise history, as the team shipped seven runs in the opening inning, were 19-0 down after the fifth, and only registered their first run in the seventh.

The loss marks a new low for the Mets and, as the New York Times notes , the team is on course for over 90 losses — failure is clearly a habit that is now hard to break.

However, while the Mets may have lost the match, their social media team scored some garbage time points because of the way they handled the defeat on Twitter.

The ‘final score’ tweet was simple and not inaccurate:

They also mastered the art of the reply, here:

Sure if you didn’t laugh…

When they finally scored their first run of the night:

But hey, it’s not the biggest loss in the entire history of the MLB (so, eh GO METS!): the Baltimore Orioles were smashed 30-3 by the Texas Rangers in 2007 and, going back even further, the Louisville Colones had to lick their wounds after the Chicago Colts beat them 36-7 in 1897.
