Wally Backman's inside-the-park homer (the first ever by a Met lefty at Shea) helped win this game.

October 1, 2007
This was a big night at Shea back in the day. It was sports bag night! Over 48,000 there for the game. Mets probably thought they were in the wrong stadium when they saw a crowd that big. I remember the next year they put a picture of that night in the 83 yearbook with the 1983 promotion schedule. I remember a big crowd, Mets winning and going home with a cool blue and orange (no black back then - good old days) bag that I toted to school that fall.

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!
