METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 2, 1984 GAME:

Hank M
August 7, 2007
This was an exciting win. The game was tied when Danny Heep, pinch-hitting for the pitcher, led off the ninth inning. Danny hit a high, shallow fly ball down the left field line. Henry Cotto made a diving attempt for the ball, but it got by him...and rolled all the way to the corner! With Cotto lying on the ground and the ball way behind him, I thought Heep was going to have a game-winning, inside-the-park home run. He wound up stopping at third base.

The leadoff triple turned out to be good enough. After two intentional walks to load the bases, Keith Hernandez hit a sacrifice fly to score Danny with the winning run. The Mets had a walk- off victory over the team that would become their chief rival that season.

When I look back at this game, I think of it as a great win during the Mets' return to contender status. Still, I can't help but think of how much more thrilling it would have been had Danny Heep been able to circle the bases on that ball he hit.

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.
