Everyone remembers the game from the night before...Pendleton's crushing homer in the ninth and the extra inning loss...but the Mets had a chance to rebound about 14 hours later and Doc let them down.

After Vince Coleman struck out to start the game, here's what the Cards did off Gooden: double, walk, walk, walk, sac fly, single, stolen base, single, fly out. Coming off the backbreaker of the night before, the Mets are down 5-0 before Mookie steps to the plate. If it wasn't over the night before, it sure is over now. The Cards got another run the the top of the second and Doc was gone by the third. His line was 2 innings, 6 runs, 5 hits, 3 walks.

And one more thing I didn't remember: the loss in this game dropped the Mets into THIRD place, half a game behind Montreal. The Mets did finish the season one game ahead of the Expos.

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!
