My first Mets game, and I left after nine innings. True, I was only eight years old, but why would I leave before it was over? Years later I found out why. It seems the Mets were up 2-1 in the top of the ninth and the Cardinals had a runner on third with one man out. The next batter hit a high fly ball deep down the left field line but clearly foul (probably near where that triangle-shaped area with flowers is today).

The Mets left fielder at that stage of the game was a man called Leon Brown.

"Now Leon, was in trouble, but he chased that old ball down, and he made the catch but the runner scored, all because of Leon Brown."

"Had he left that ball and turned aside, he might not have been a clown, but he caught it and let the tying run score, yes he did that Leon Brown."

"He was bad, bad, Leon Brown, baddest man in the whole damn town, badder than old Dave Kong, dumber than a junkyard dog."

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!
