Thru This Game

This game was a lot of fun. The Mets for the first time in years looked as if they might have a say in the division race, and rallied to beat the Braves in their final at-bat on a single by Carlos Baerga. It was their second straight win over the Braves and fans showing early symptoms of pennant fever left Shea chanting "sweep! sweep!" I was on a first-date with a Braves fan and was slightly embarrassed to be rubbing it in her face, but I did anyway. Too bad we got killed the next night.

Sat in the field level in left-field, saw Baerga's game-tying homer sail past me... then he had the game-winning single! His best game as a Met. I remember being elated, I had gone to the game the night before as well. My dreams of a sweep were dashed the next day when Bobby Jones was rocked. Luckily I wasn't there for that one.

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!
