This was second game of a twi-night double header. Remember those? This was a loooong night! The first game was a close affair Mets pulled it out but dropped the second, my girl was tired but hung in there til the end of a 13 ininng game #2. We had to park in one of the grass "lots" and not our usual spot behind left field lot. When we came out to the car it had been hit with a baseball bat as had some others and one guy's car was stolen. We had to go back into the bowels of Shea and make a police report. Which was pretty cool. I remember wanting to walk around and look for some Tommie Agee heirlooms. My wife has never let me forget that night; it was her new Red 1988 Ford Tempo with a huge dent becuse of the METS 6 hour plus double header.

I remember feeling bad for Gene Walter in this game.

In the 13th, with Billy Hatcher on first, he alertly threw to first while Hatcher was stealing, and had him picked off. But Keith Hernandez dropped the easy throw, and Hatcher made second easily. Unfortunately, by rule, Hatcher just got a stolen base. There was no error, Gene Walter got an earned run, and took the loss after Hatcher scored on a single.

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.
