Talk about inviting a beating of epic proportions. It wasn't lost on many either...
Trouble is exactly what followed, too! Here are the ten funniest replies and/or subtweets I could find in response to the Mets complete lack of self-awareness:
Ohhhh person who runs the official team account, don't ever stop being you.— E.J.Stankiewicz (@TheHappyRecap) December 2, 2013
The Mets want us to @ them with the hashtag #TearsForMyTeam. This is too easy.— Candy Cane Adam (@AdamMets) December 2, 2013
@Mets Whoever runs this account... Why do you bring it upon yourself?— Tom (@GetsThruBuckner) December 2, 2013
Dear person running the @Mets account: you have the patience of a saint. They should 4x your salary at LEAST. Hardest job in social media— Tom Thai (@eviltomthai) December 2, 2013
