I remember being a thirteen year old kid and being a rabid Met fan. We went into the series with the Cardinals having just taken over first place after the Phillies legendary nosedive. We were actually playing an important game! The Cards needed one win for the pennant. Little Al Jackson, who was always tough and had a big heart went out and shut down Bob Gibson and the Cardinals with a five hitter. It was so cool to be spoilers for the first time. I took a lot of pride in my Mets from that game.

What made it even better was that I am pretty certain that Jackson had been a Cardinal prospect that the Mets had obtained in the expansion draft!

This game was on Friday. the Mets also won on Saturday, but Gibson clinched the pennant on the final day of the season by beating the Mets. The Cardinals finished a game ahead of the Phils and Reds and beat the Yanks in the World Series.

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.
