As a huge Dodger fan I went to this game against my better judgment. LA took an early lead with a Mike Marshall homer off of Sid Fernandez, however George Foster (who always hit LA well) hit a three run HR off of Valenzuela and that was it. I never went to another LA - Mets game since then as I bring bad luck to the Dodgers).

Joel, I was also at this game--but I wasn't rooting for the Dodgers!

It was actually a solo HR by Foster leading off the 2nd that gave the Mets an early 1-0 lead. The Dodgers tied it in the 4th, the Mets went ahead 3- 1 on hits by Knight and Teufel, then Marshall homered off Sid in the 5th to make it 3-2 Mets. It stayed that way until the bottom of the 7th when Keith Hernandez doubled home two runs to make it 5-2. The Dodgers had the tying run up with two outs in the ninth but Jesse Orosco came in to get Mike Scioscia to ground out to end the game.

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.
