This loss officially eliminated the Mets from playoff contenion for the 1989 season. Another year the Mets should have won!

Yes, the loss did eliminate the Mets from contention under the 2 division winner format but not the case if there were wild cards then. There would have a tight race for 2 spots between the Mets, Padres, Cardinals and Astros. Mets and Padres would have been the winners as the 2 best records of teams not to win division. 1989 NLDS would have been Mets vs Cubs and Giants vs Padres.

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!
