Rick Reed's coming out party. I ventured out to Shea on a bright April afternoon (I think I got sunburned) not expecting much. Got a field box from a scalper for $5 under face value. Reed was magnificent the whole way, despite some morons chanting "SCAB!" throughout the early innings. Boy, did he ever shut them up. Alfonzo blasted a 3-run triple in the 5th and that was all he needed, Reeder's first complete game and W as a Met. And when he batted in the 8th, he got a huge ovation, even from the idiots who had jeered him earlier. Great game.

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!
