This was a banner day doubleheader and my mother and I took the train to New York from Connecticut. We had Field Level seats down the right field line. About the third inning I went for some refreshments behind home plate. A gentleman came up the isle and gave me four tickets for the seats behind home plate 2 rows back. I got my mother and we enjoyed the doubleheader from a pair of great seats! This game was a makeup from earlier in the season. In fact they played the Padres in back to back doubleheaders and got the Mets on the roll that ultimately sent them roaring past the Cubs. The only memory I have specifically is a Duffy Dyer home run which may have come in the second game. I don't remember.

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!
