Hard to believe this game is 18 years old now. The local community college was sponsoring a trip down to Philly for this game. Of course I was mocked by Yankee fans for having an interest in going to see two last place teams play at the time.

The only memory I have of this game besides the Phillies winning was the third base coach sending a runner home who got thrown at the plate to end the eighth inning. Obviously not that exciting of a game as I can't remember most of it!

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!
