Don Aase. He gave up a three-run homer to Willie Randolph in the top of the ninth with the Mets ahead 3- 2. It was Randolph's only home run the whole year! The Mets went into a tailspin after that and couldn't catch the Cubs. It was also Ramon Martinez's rookie season (he started the game) and he did a decent job.

One of my top 10 worst regular season losses. Willie Randolph taking Don Aase deep to the opposite field...I still have nightmares about it. Aase will always live in infamy for that home run.

I didn't attend this game, but watched it on TV...Future manager (but for how long?) Willie Randolph came on Kiner's Korner to talk about his 9th-inning homer that won it for the Dodgers, and said, "Sorry, Met fans..."

For some reason, I'll never forget that...

Example One
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!
