I watched this game from the front row at Veterans Stadium. My sister was working in Philadelphia and got tickets from her employer, which owned a box along the left field foul line. Before the game, Ron Darling came down to our area and signed autographs.

The game was close for a while, but the Mets then won easily. Gregg Jefferies and Howard Johnson hit homers. Tom O'Malley got a 2-run single in the ninth.

There was one pleasant surprise for us on this night. I looked in front of me and I saw Number 16 walking to the mound. Dwight Gooden was making a relief appearance! He pitched three shutout innings, holding the Phillies down as the Mets slowly piled up runs. What a treat this was!

A Mets' win on the road, Doc in relief and seeing it from a front row seat. Great night!

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!
