My first Mets game. A Friday night outing with the Cub Scouts. Nice night weather-wise. My father made us leave somewhere around the 13th inning. It's almost as if he could smell a Met defeat coming. So I was spared seeing the end of this drawn out loss. The '68 Mets couldn't hit. The truly amazing thing about the '69 Mets is that the personnel wasn't radically different from '68, the '69 team didn't hit much better than the '68 team, and yet the stars were in alignment, the moon was in the 7th house, Messers Armstrong and Aldrin strolled on the moon and somehow the 1969 Mets won the World Series. To quote the famous baseball philospher, "and you could look it up."

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
