Manager Joe Torre and utilityman Bobby Valentine were both ejected from this game by Joe West in the bottom of the seventh---and Valentine wasn't even playing!

With nobody out and a runner at first, Enos Cabell grounded into a routine 6-4-3 double play (it seemed), but West claimed that Doug Flynn was guilty of the "neighborhood" play and was not on the base, so he called Dave Bergman safe at second.

Torre came out to argue and was tossed out, and I guess Bobby V was holding a conversation from the bench inviting West to Connecticut to open a restaurant with him.

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!
