Mets: WTF happened yesterday?

From the NY Post
“This is the vaunted pitching on which the Mets’ 2019 fortunes rest?

Only hours after assistant general manager John Ricco stood pat with his best pitchers at the non-waiver trade deadline, expressing a desire to contend next season with a strong rotation, Steven Matz orchestrated an abomination against the Nationals that screamed “sell, sell, sell.”

In a historic implosion, the Mets lost 25-4 at Nationals Park.

The demolition — which included Jose Reyes entering in the eighth inning for his first career pitching appearance — was the worst loss in Mets history. It topped the Mets’ 26-7 loss to the Phillies on June 11, 1985 at Veterans Stadium.

“It’s a tough loss,” manager Mickey Callaway said. “It’s embarrassing. We have got to do better than that.””

MG- Can the Mets get any lower? This is just out of control now. Mets made no trades to get better for the next season and then they get shelled. I can even see the Mets DFA’ing Pitcher Jose Reyes while keeping the position player Jose Reyes. There is nothing fun about the Mets at all. The young players that they wanted to bring up don’t really bring any excitement and I just can’t believe how much further they are freefalling as a franchise. Oh yeah, not signing Daniel Murphy has really worked out for the Mets hasn’t it? 
This is crazy.
