The game stats for this game, I think, are wrong. I remember this game because I was there. I was a big Dodger fan and my parents took me to see this night game on the way back to Florida after visiting my aunt and uncle on Long Island. We sat about ten rows up from the top of the left field fenc, about two aisles to the foul side of the foul pole. Home plate was a galaxy away, but I didn''t care. Anyway, what I remember is my boyhood idol, Steve Garvey, making it a game I would never forget when he stroked a late-inning laser beam over the left field wall with two on. The ball was out of the park in less than four seconds, and Garvey hadn't reached first base. Thanks, Steve.

Oh, about the wrong stat. You don't credit Dodger right-fielder Gary Thomasson with an error for dropping a simple, short fly ball. I know he did because I saw it, and I remember thinking that was typical for the Dodgers that evening. No way the scorekeeper would have awarded the batter a hit on the play. I think Thomasson was too focused on getting the runner tagging from third.

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.
