The Mets deleted their tweet, which, as you know, means it is no longer on the Internet and never happened anyway. pic.twitter.com/BIr6x8cXO3

It used to be we could mock the Mets because they had an awful baseball team. With the way the tides have turned in the NL East, that may no longer be the case. So we have to point at their awful choice of words in the above tweet instead. Choosing to change Dice-Ks nickname to Dice-KKK for striking out the side is never a good idea.
They sent a follow up tweet noting the pun was unintentional.
That was unintended. We're glad he struck out the side. #DiceK
