This Saturday afternoon at Shea saw one of the worst performances by the Mets bullpen in 1987.

The Mets fell behind early in this game, 3-0, but came back to take a 4-3 lead after four innings. Montreal tied it in the sixth, but the Mets regained the lead 6-4 in the bottom of the sixth on a sac fly by Dave Magadan and an RBI pinch- single by Lee Mazzilli. Gene Walter pitched well in the seventh and eighth to hold the 6-4 lead but he left the game after giving up a leadoff single to Tim Raines in the ninth. In came Doug Sisk, but he allowed another single, then an infield out to make it 6-5, and then the game- tying hit by Vance Law.

But the fun was just starting...Jesse Orosco came in to get the last out, then after the Mets threatened but didn't score in the bottom of the ninth, Jesse came back out to start the tenth. His first four batters in the ninth went single, single, single, grand slam (by Tim Raines). Jesse gave up two more hits before Randy Myers came in and the Expos got another run on a Keith Hernandez error.

The bullpen pitched five innings that day and allowed eight runs and twelve hits.

The infamous Tim Raines game. I recall this being a big deal because Tim Raines had a contract dispute and was playing in his first game of the season. He was pissed off and ready to play, and hit a back breaking grand slam to win the 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.
