This was the first time ever that the previous season's two Cy Young Award winners faced each other in a game.

This was the "salami" game that gave me my 15 minutes of fame. Abe Lebewohl, the owner of NYC's famous Second Avenue Deli, had announced a promotion offering a free salami to anyone who showed up with a ticket stub from a game won by new Met Frank Viola. Being kind of a wise-ass, I thought it would be fun to see their reaction to a ticket from a road game. I ordered a ticket through the Dodgers, and had it sent via FedEx. I showed up at the restaurant the next morning with my ticket, and the next thing I knew, I was besieged by media and got my picture and a story in all the major city newspapers. Lebewohl gave me a whole box of salamis!

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!
