Just watched this one on the old tape. El Sid finished the season well and the Mets won 4 games at Pittsburgh to finish...something they'd have A LOT of trouble doing the next few years unfortunately. 1989 was easily one of the weirdest years in team history. Everyone kept waiting for the Mets to pull away from the Cubs and Expos all through the season but they never could put together a long stretch of great baseball. Keith and Carter barely played and when they did they sadly contributed nothing. Their on-field production and leadership was sorely missed. Straw, while having a good season in general, had the worst season of his Mets career. The trade of McDowell and Dykstra for Juan Samuel proved to be one of the most ill-advised trades in team history. Gooden missed 2 months. In a strange way, 1989 really proved more than any other year just how much more talented the Mets were than other teams in that era. With the exception of HoJo's career year, almost NOTHING went right for them that year, and they still won 87 games basically in their sleep.

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.
