It was the Mets home (and season) finale and the sun played peek-a-boo with the clouds all afternoon but they got this one in. John Olerud got to the 100 RBI mark as the Mets defeated the playoff bound Braves 8-2 in front of 27,176. After the game, Bobby V and company came out for a curtain call and we cheered like crazy! It was a sure sign of good things to come as then-Dodger Mike Piazza hit his 40th home run in Colorado on the same day. Who knew at the time that several months later that Piazza would be a New York Met?

One of the most "feel good" games in Mets history in my opinion. The 1997 Mets finished off an 88 win season with a big win over the Braves. This team really came out of nowhere to put together a season that few expected after years of mediocre play, especially with starting the season off going 3-9. Once this game was over, Diamond Vision played a video of season highlights and even some of the players had tears in their eyes (notably Carlos Baerga and John Franco). Fun game to watch and really set the stage for a nice run of seasons for the team.

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.
