This was the second game of a day-night doubleheader, and I was driving at night in my SUV in northeastern Minnesota, heading out to Thunder Bay, Ontario. Even though I was in Minnesota, I could hear this game on KOA radio in Denver, which calls itself the "Blowtorch of the Rockies". Eric Young drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Rockies a sweep of the doubleheader.

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!
