Gary Cohen made some sort of cryptic comment just now about how this was a significant date and Keith Hernandez immediately recognized this. I don't remember anything about this game, but from looking at the box score I see Keith didn't play. My general memory is that the Mets at the time were not getting their act together and the egos were colliding in the clubhouse (ultimately they got back in the race but fell short). Did Keith throw a tantrum and refuse to play in this game? Was Davey Johnson ticked at him and benched him? I'm drawing a total blank. Early signs of senility, I guess.:)

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!
