After the Mets' enthusiastic celebration of a walkoff win against the Cubs on Sunday, commentator Bob Costas quipped that the display was "another sign of the ongoing decline of Western Civilization."

Wednesday afternoon, Mets GM Sandy Alderson got his revenge. In tweet form:

Alderson is known for his dry sense of humor, particularly on twitter.
