Opening Day, 1979: young Jesse Orosco makes his major league debut, coming in to pitch to one batter and getting the last out of the game. The batter he faced was....Bill Buckner.

I was very excited about the Hebner trade. I had remembered his play with the Pirates and I had high hopes for this season. Yes, I liked Richie Hebner but then again I like green ham. Opening day against the Cubs, Hebner is four for four and he came up with a runner on third and less than two out. I was hoping for a hit or a sacrifice fly so he could have a perfect day at the plate. He popped up to the infield. I felt a strange foreboding at that moment.

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.
