Gooden vs. Valenzuela, round 2. If the game in May was the greatest ever, this has to be number 2. Tom Paciorek made a miracle catch in right field to keep this one scoreless, and both pitchers dominated. Gooden pitched 9, Fernando went 11 -- and many people think he was never the same after that game. The Mets finally won it in the 13th when Darryl Strawberry poked a 2-run double down the left line.

I remember going to my brother's house to watch this game because my town hadn't gotten cable yet and this game was on Sportschannel. On top of that, I had a vicious stomach virus but I still sat on my brothers couch watching until nearly falling asleep. If I had leprosy, I woulda went there anyway: It was Doc vs Fernando.

Remember the comic strip "Motley's Crew" which was in the New York Daily News in the 1980's? It featured the antics of the beer drinking, blue collar working and sports fan Mike Motley, his family and his friends. Anyhow, the Saturday September 7th, 1985 edition foretold a Mets win from this game. It begins when the Old Man asks Mike what is in the news and Mike replies "Yesterday, the Mets beat the Dodgers, the Blue Jays beat the Twins and the Pirates beat the Astros." In the words of Phil Rizzulto's pal Meatloaf, 2 out of 3 ain't bad: They got the Mets and Blue Jays victory right but the Astros wound up winning in 10 innings over the Pirates. (Comic strips are drawn in advance.) I was a big fan of "Motley's Crew", I read it every day until it ended many years ago.

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.
