I remember this game for the boxscore only. I was 10 years old on vacation with my family in Wildwood, NJ and already a huge Mets fan but I couldn't watch the Mets on TV down there because they only showed Phillie games. My only knowledge of how the Mets did was to check the boxscores the next day. (This was well before the days of Sports Center and endless highlights.)

Well when I checked the boxscore for this particular game not only did I see a Mets win over the Cubs but I saw that this guy Mazzilli (who I'd never heard of) had pinch hit and his boxscore read 1 1 1 3 which meant he'd hit a 3-run homer. I thought to myself, "Wow this guy hit a 3-run homer in his first at bat in the bigs!" but I soon came to realize that it wasn't his first AB but his second, still not too shabby.

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!
