METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 25, 1984 GAME:

I was there. Kepshire had the Mets in his back pocket and enjoying a three-run lead until Straw-man came up in the bottom of the fourth with two men on. A lazy swing stroked a fly ball that just made it over the fence to tie the game. Remember, this was when Darryl was synonymous with youth and anticipation, before he was the feared slugger (as well as for his darker side). It was almost the feeling that no matter what, he was going to tie the game; that the universe had willed it to be that way. Kepshire was quoted after the game as saying "the ball shouldn't have gone out."

Such was the excitement in the early days of Mookie, Wally, Hubie, Darryl and Keith.

This was the game that convinced me the Mets were for real. I was there in the 3rd base box seats, broiling in the sun. The Mets are behind 3-0 and I'm conditioned to feel that this is going to be another lost afternoon at Shea. Then Strawberry hit it out and they go on to win. I bought a Mets painter's hat that day that I continued to wear to every Mets game I went to and they won over 75% of the time. I even wore it to (bow your heads) Game 6 of the '86 Series.

Example One
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.
