The Mets lost 25–4 and well, Twitter went in on the team for just being so Mets.

If you were wondering about the state of the Mets organization, Tuesday's game was probably the best indication. 

The Mets lost 25–4, but New York was losing to the Nationals 19–0 ... in the fifth inning. It was even raining in Washington.

This was fine.

The game came after the team didn't deal off any of its big-name starters at the MLB trade deadline Tuesday. 

Again, this was fine.

The most lopsided shutout in the modern record book is when the Pirates beat the Cubs 22–0 in 1975, and if any game felt like it could beat that, it was this one. Considering the score and inning and just general Metsness, New York seemed prime to etch its name in history, albeit not in the way the team wanted this year. 

But the Mets, in true Mets fashion, couldn't even give us the benefit of seeing it all go down in flames. Jeff McNeil's sixth-inning solo homer put the team on the board, instead. The team then added three runs in the ninth to give us a "comeback."

Mets infielder Jose Reyes even added to the count when he gave up a two-run homer. The Nationals set the franchise record for most runs (24) scored in a game. 

Well, Mets fans, we want to say how much worse can it get, but really, do we even want to ask that question to see what the baseball gods give us next?

Here are some of the best reactions to the game:

Even the Mets knew this one was bad.

Recap the game here to just how awful it was in all its detail.
