My wife and I had just moved into our house and we took this week off. To get away from the constant cleaning and straightening up we decided to go to the game that night. Fortunately, my father knew a guy in the Mets' ticket office back then and I called him and he put aside two "X- seats" for us, right behind the plate under the screen. And so I got my first up close look at Dwight Gooden, from about the eighth row!

Doc didn't disappoint us, he went 8.1 innings, striking out 12, and despite giving up a leadoff triple to Bill Doran in the first inning, Gooden was the winner in this 4-2 Mets victory. Wally Backman had two singles and drove in 3 of the Mets' 4 runs.

Jesse Orosco came in to get the last two outs and struck out Ray Knight, who represented the tying run, to end the game.

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!
