I remember watching this game on TV as a kid. The Mets were trailing the whole night before Dave Marshall tied it up with a 2-run homer. What sticks in my mind most, though, is how they lost it in the tenth. Tug McGraw threw a pitch that bounced right over Jerry Grote's head! Jerry ran back to get the ball, but he couldn't find it. Tug went back to help, but had no luck. Meanwhile, the runner on second base came all the way around to score. A tough-luck loss!

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!
