108th and final win of the regular season. I'm amazed we all got so blase about winning by that point. Boy were the playoffs ever a big wake up call. I had a Sunday season ticket plan and it seemed like Sid Fernandez always started the Sunday home games, to the point where me and the other denizens of Mezz. Sect 20 started calling him "Sunday Sid". So it was fitting that he closed this one out.

Lots of memories:
1) Given two tickets by my Uncle and went with my brother.
2) Seats were right behind the middle of the Pirates dugout. I got Barry Bonds' autograph before the game and told him I remembered his father playing for the Yanks. My brother got Bob Walk's autograph and then #88. #88 - turned out he had asked the bat boy (BB) for his autograph.
3) Fans were going crazy when Hernandez was hit in the 1st and saw how locked in Gary Carter was. Stadium went wild as Gary hit the huge homer to back his teammate up.
4) Fun fall day and we knew the team was ready for the playoffs.

I was at this game. My family sat in the mezzanine section and the thing I remember best is when the game was over, the Mets stepped out on the field to thank the fans, and we all cheered. Then they all threw their hats into the front rows, behind the dugouts. I was like, damn, I wish we had seats down there. I don't think I'm imagining this. They threw their hats into the crowd. What a team.

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.
