In the first game of a Sunday doubleheader at Shea, Yogi Berra is batting seventh and catching for the Mets. Yogi strikes out three times for only the second time in his career as the Braves win 8-2.

Yogi struck out his first three times up and then grounded into a force play in what would be the final at bat of his outstanding career.

Through his time in the majors, Yogi struck out just once every 20 plate appearances, and never struck out more than 38 times in a season. That's amazing for someone with his power. Yogi usually had more homers than strikeouts, and in 1950 he hit 28 home runs while striking out just 12 times in 151 games!

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!
