The Mets won this game causing the New York Times to commit an embarrassing blooper. The Mets started the doubleheader with 98 losses and lost the first game and were losing this game which was the nightcap. The Times must have had a headline ready: "Mets Lose 100th Game." The Mets ended up rallying and winning this game but the Times erroneously ran the headline in some of their editions. The win began a six-game winning streak to end the season and the Mets never did suffer their 100th loss. They finished the season 63-99.

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!
