METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 26, 1990 GAME:

I got my first foul ball at this game. It was hit by Joe Carter.

Hey, Tony! Did Carter hit that foul ball to you in the fourth inning? If he did, then you got your souvenir while Sid Fernandez was recording his 1000th strikeout. El Sid fanned Carter in the top of the fourth for his 37th strikeout of the season, which brought him to the 1,000 mark for his career.

Mr. Roboto, you are a little off about Fernandez. The strikeout of Carter in the 4th inning was actually his 1,000th as a Mets pitcher only. Sid had nine K's with the Dodgers before coming to New York and reached the 1,000 career mark in San Diego six days earlier. Ironically, it was Carter that he struck out for that milestone, too.

Mr. Roboto
November 11, 2011
Jughead, thanks for your clarification of my earlier entry. I did a little checking and found that you are correct about Fernandez. His 1,000th strikeouts with the Mets and as a major leaguer were both against Carter. I had forgotten that Sid began his career in Los Angeles. Good research.

There is another interesting fact about this game. It was the last win for Davey Johnson as Mets manager.

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!
