What many people don't know is that this game was supposed to be just the first game of a doubleheader. The Mets lost this game, dropping their record to 0-4, and they started the second game. They took a 2-0 lead into the fourth inning, at which point it started to snow and the game was called. Had they been able to keep their lead and play one more inning, they would have recorded their first win in a snow-shortened game. How appropriate would that have been?

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.

Thank you!
