I will never forget this game. It was the one where Richie Hebner was thrown out at the plate, and argued with the umpire. He was ejected.

So he tossed dirt all over home plate and stumped off to the dugout. Joel Youngblood came in from right field to play third base, and Bruce Boisclair (Andrew and I always called him Bruce Boys-clare) jogged out to play right field. The Mets lost anyway.

I guess Hebner was happy to get the game off.

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!
