I was at this game - I had been to the game the day before, and then my Uncle took me to the Jets practice the next day, and to lunch with Gerry Philbin, who was a client of his, and then to the Mets game that night. The highlight of my 12 year-old life to that point!! And my favorite Met, Ron Swoboda, hit a homer to help win the game! (Kooz was my favorite pitcher, and he won the game, so doubly good.)

James, Gerry Philbin was one of my favorite Jets!

The Mets won this Friday night game to start a six-game winning streak. It was the middle of a larger streak that saw them go 12-1 in a thirteen game stretch. At the start of the stretch they had fallen to third place, 9.5 games behind the Cubs. But by the end of the streak on August 27 they were just two games out of first.

The Mets jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in this game thanks in part to Swoboda's two-run homer off Bill Singer in the second inning. But Kooz wasn't at the top of his game this night, allowing ten hits in six innings and committing two balks. The Dodgers got to within one run in the seventh but Cleon Jones knocked in an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth and Tug McGraw retired the last seven batters he faced for the save.

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!
