This game was in the middle of a dreadful stretch and season for the Mets and I remember that it was a rare appearance for them on the NBC Saturday afternoon Game of the Week. They were playing the playoff-bound, high-profile Reds. I was 14 and really excited my team was on national TV for a change. But Jeff Reardon, who was a rookie, blew the game.

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!
