"The Yankees just helped the Mets!"

This is what my father said after we saw what happened in the sixth inning. Horace Clarke, who had been released by the Yanks because of his continuous shoddy fielding, let a two-out ground ball get through his legs. This error allowed the tying run to score and paved the way for a 4- run inning. The Mets would go on to win, 4-2, with all runs unearned.

The game of baseball can provide a lot of strange twists. This game is a good example. It was won with a little help from our "friends" in the Bronx. Thank you, Yankees, for releasing Horace Clarke, allowing the Padres to sign him. It came in very handy on this night.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

Example One
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!
