This happened to be Irish night at Shea and everyone got green Met hats which I still have to this day. I was 13 and went with my father and some of his friends. I remember this being an enjoyable game and Todd Hundley hit an opposite field grand slam en route to a Mets victory. Looking back 1997 was one of the few years in my lifetime when the season ended and I was satisfied. (The Mets went 88-74 that year.) They did better than I expected and it just seems every season since then they either just were bad, collapsed down the stretch (e.g 1998, 2007, 2008) or had an excruciating playoff loss.

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!
