I am a Pirates fan and went to this game, part of a twi-night doubleheader. This was the only game of 18 that the Pirates beat the Mets in 1986. The Pirates 1-17 record against the Mets prompted Jim Leyland to say of the 1986 Mets, "how good could they be, we beat 'em once."

I looked up this game because I recall that Barry Bonds, then a rookie, hit a home run in the game. I think he had just had his debut the week before and I am not sure if this was his first MLB HR or not.

Mark, Bonds hit a homer in this game off Ron Darling, but it was the second of his career. His first had come two nights earlier in Atlanta off RHP Craig McMurtry.

Not only was this the Bucs only win vs the Mets, as well as the Bonds HR, but also the bench clearing fight that broke out between Rick Rhoden and Mets coach Bill Robinson was in this 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.
