Tommy Herr won it for the Cardinals in the bottom of the 9th with a walk-off grand slam. The Mets had led this game 5-0 at one time, but blew it. I think at that moment I began to realize 1987 was not going to be like 1986.

You got that right! They blew a 5 run lead as well as one run leads in the bottom of the 9th and 10th innings - the Herr grand slam just put them out of their misery that night. This was the first of what was to be many nights like this in 1987 - climaxed by the infamous "Terry Pendleton game".

As a Cardinals fan, I attended this game and sat in the right field bleachers that night. It was (by far) the most exciting game I ever attended at Busch Stadium. For the small-ball, low-scoring Cards to come back three times in a single game was nearly unheard of. And to close the game with a walk-off grand slam was icing on the cake. That night also happened to be "Seat Cushion Night" at the ballpark, and the fans rained down seat cushions onto the field with each comeback (prompting numerous delays). Busch Stadium has not had another seat cushion promotion since that night. I am probably one of only a few fans who still possesses his coveted seat cushion from that fateful night.

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.
