The greatest Mets game I have ever witnessed in person! Gentry vs. Don Sutton. Mets were charging hard, and I watched the scoreboard all day as the Cubs split a doubleheader against the Astros in Chicago.

Swoboda had a huge day, including a bases loaded walk in the first, and a great throw from right field to third base to nail a runner trying to go from first to third on a single. But the Mets trailed 4-3 as they came to bat in the seventh. They loaded the bases again, and this time Swoboda rapped a double into the left field corner to score all three runners for a 6-4 lead. Grote single him home to complete the scoring, and Cal Koonce finished them off. Gentry had a bad outing and left early.

The packed house was deafening (so were the jets that day), and it was an incredible day that I feel fortunate to remember vividly.

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.
