This was a great day for Bud Harrelson. He hit a home run in the first inning to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. The homer was his first one that ever went out of the park (he had an inside-the- parker a few years earlier) and the only one of his six as a Met that he ever hit at Shea Stadium.

Buddy didn't stop there. In the third, he hit a triple that scored Tommie Agee, then scored himself when Joe Foy doubled. The Mets got three runs in the inning.

Tom Seaver, pretty much, took care of the rest. He pitched a shutout, scattering eight hits, but the day really belonged to Buddy. He provided the offensive charge with some slugging, which didn't come from him too often.

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!
