It's no secret now - the Phillies are to name Joe Girardi as the team's new manager.
Philadelphia is celebrating left and right and it's apparent their offseason is off to the right start.
Just a little north though, in the city that never sleeps - Mets fans are about to have a lot of restless nights … and we are here for it.
Having Girardi in Philadelphia is exciting in itself but knowing the Mets wanted him too? Well, that's icing on the cake.
I feel sorry for Mets fans … really, I do (not).
And they've taken to social media to express their frustration with the club. Here are some of the best reactions:

Of course the Mets don't get Girardi 🤬— Scotty (@ryan_scott1310) October 24, 2019
A couple of hours later, and I'm still amazed at how aggravated I am about the Mets passing on Girardi. I knew it was coming, and yet still pissed. Just such a disgrace of an organization. Never going for top-tier, in either players or managers.— Digruntled Mets Fan (@AllMyTeamsStink) October 24, 2019
That organization had the right man at the right time staring at them this whole time and still struck out. Girardi leading the Mets would've been exactly what they needed but..... they dropped the ball and let him go to a division rival. pic.twitter.com/wMERClzGB0— Bruno Miguel (@BrunoMigz) October 24, 2019
I wish I could say I'm surprised that the #Mets didn't get Girardi. I'm not. It was a no brainer so of course they screwed it up and to make it worse he's managing a division rival— Tom Spencer (@Tommy__Spencer) October 24, 2019
And I saved the best (and most accurate) for last ... you're welcome.
When the Mets miss out on hiring girardi but then you realize the front office and owners are still horrible and it wouldn't have mattered anyway pic.twitter.com/0LMDjHGGOs— TB (@nottherealtomb) October 24, 2019
