In the 8th inning of this game, Lenny Dysktra made a game saving catch off the bat of Dave Parker. Lenny ran back to right-center field and robbed him of a homer (the catch has been included in numerous Mets highlight montages over the years). Dave Parker just laughed as he rounded 1st base, knowing that the Mets were simply too good and too hot to beat at that time. One of the more classic moments during that championship season.

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!
