METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 2, 1980 GAME:

The Mets had been flirting with .500 until mid- August when they fell apart. By September 1st, there was nothing to do but think about the future and they called up from Tidewater Wally Backman, Mookie Wilson, and Hubie Brooks who were their top draft choices of 1977 and 1978. The team was on the west coast and none of the three rookies got into the September 1st game, probably because of travel time. But Mookie and Wally started in this game on September 2nd and got three hits between them. All three of them got much playing time over the last month of the season.

Believe it or not I was at this game with a friend who had moved to LA. This was the first time in Dodger Stadium and it was strange rooting for the Mets as the home team challenged for a pennant. It also was the first time I had seen the Dodgers at home since I was a kid and my dad took to me to Ebbets Field. What struck me was the different setting the Dodgers now played in, compared to playing at Ebbets Field. Even though it was close most Dodger fans left in the 7th inning. I remeber seeing Mookie that night as well and I then followed them down the coast to San Diego.

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.
