METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 7, 1991 GAME:

Jim Eckert
February 18, 2011
Attended this game against the awful Phillies in Philly. The Mets won easily 8-2 as I watched with quiet contentment. You don't make joyful Met noises in Philly. I'm yet alive to this day because I understood that.

Regrettably it was heading into the all star break as the Mets extended to a 7-game winning streak. But for a bit more they didn't cool, they picked up after the break to make it 10 in a row. They were making their run and were going to finally steamroll past the Pirates! They reached 53-38.

Then the wheels fell off and the engine dropped out, worse than in 1977. How can a 53-38 (94-68 season equivalent) team end by going 24-46 (56- 106 season equivalent). Can anyone explain how this happened?, I forget, probably because I tried hard to. Even the "awful" Phillies, 14 games behind the Mets after this game, finished a half game ahead of them. A dark era had come, anti-climaxed, of course by 1993, the worst Met season in context ever.

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.
