A great game I remember going to. Bobby Jones duels Pedro Martinez. 7 shut out innings each and Matt Franco helps Jones get the win with a pinch hit HR. I emember seeing Pedro slamming his glove on his way to the clubhouse after giving up those 2 runs in 8th. Seeing that game gave some of us a feeling that this team could really be getting somewhere finally.

I remember two things distinctly about this game.

First, Baerga, in his usual habit of getting red-hot in May and June, then folding his tent, hit a huge RBI double in the last of the 8th, driving home the winning run, and then Hundley tried to score a third run, but got gunned down at home, despite the fact that he basically body-slammed Expos Catcher Darrin Fletcher at the plate. The OF who gunned him down, from RF, on the fly? Vladimir Guerrero.

The second thing I remember is the great Pedro Martinez, in his usual fashion, sitting by himself in the Expos dugout no less than half an hour after the game, alone, in the dark, arms folded and pouting.

Pedro, Pedro, Pedro...What are we gonna do with ye?

A great game. Pedro v. Bobby Jones in a classical pitchers duel. Vladimir throws out Hundley at the plate from the warning track in right. The best throw I have ever seen. Matt Franco homers to the right field bullpen to win it over an awesome Pedro.

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.
