Strange day. Kobel first had to get the last out to complete the game from the previous day (see the post for that game). The Mets won the continued game 5-0. Then Kobel continued on as the starting pitcher for the scheduled game - and lost it.

I was at this game with my brother Andrew. We didn't know about the fuss with Kranepool not being on the field the day before, but learned later. How you could play a third of an inning without anyone -- umpires, players, coaches, broadcasters -- noticing there was no first baseman. They ran Kobel out to end the game, and Torre protested having to finish it. After that absurdity, Kobel started the real game and lost anyway. I forgot that John Stearns played third base that day. Day game after a night game, I guess. He didn't do too well there, either. I think Richie Hebner was booed as a pinch-hitter. I remember the Cruz home run.

Example One
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!
