Better remembered as the day of the second Massacre. Mets fans never forget...

I'll never forget sitting in the car listening to the game with my grandparents. Von Hayes won the game with a home run. All through the game, the announcers said the Mets and Phillies had made a trade, to be disclosed after the game. We were trying to guess who it was.

I remember the Mets "Dynasty" as we knew it then, took the biggest hit at the end of the game when they traded Lenny Dykstra and Roger McDowell to the Phillies for Juan Samuel. That trade WAS the beginning of the end of that great team. Davey Johnson ruined ANY talk of Dynasty when he endorsed that trade DURING the game.

My father drove us to Veteran's Stadium from Queens. The game was close. For some strange reason they pinch hit for Nails in the middle of the game. We had no idea. After the Mets lost we turned on the radio in the car to hear that the Mets made one of the dumbest trades they ever made. Lenny Dykstra for whiff machine Juan Samuel. Sure Dykstra tried to hit too many HR's but he really was the CF of the future at the time. Mookie was aging and would be gone a year or so later. Juan Samuel in CF. Ugh. The Horror.

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.
