What a nightmare! Not only was it 95 degrees that day with a heat index of 105 degrees, but Chipper Jones ripped a grand slam and the Mets lost by a touchdown to the Braves. For this we risked heat stroke???

September 1, 2004's Jayson Stark reports that Chipper Jones hit two home runs off Bobby Jones in this game. That marked just the second time since 1916 that a player hit more than one homer in a game off a pitcher with the same last name!

Chipper had a solo shot with two outs in the fourth inning to make it 6-3 Atlanta, then hit a grand slam with two outs in the fifth. He finished the day 3-for-3 with two walks, five RBIs, and four runs scored. The Mets scored four in the bottom of the ninth to make the game look closer than it really was.

This game was the first Met game I ever took my nephew to see. He was about 4 years old at the time and I just remember it being the hottest game I ever attended.

I remember there was a buzz in the air because the Mets had just won a bunch of games and they were on the verge of sweeping the Braves for the first time in years. Unfortunately, Chipper Jones had a monster game and the Mets never caught the Braves.

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!
