What a wild game. Well pitched which was rare of Yoshii. I went to the game to see Strawberry who was awful. The ending was chaotic. I believe it was first and 3rd one out in the 9th for the Mets and some Met hit a fly ball to O'Neill for the 2nd out. O'Neill threw it in and I believe McRae was on 1st and Baerga on third. The ball came into first to try to double off McRae who must've been sleeping on the basepaths. The 1st base umpire called out, the home plate umpire called safe. Chaos ensued. The Mets fans went wild, when Baerga was called safe, then the Yankee fans went wild when McRae was called out, then Valentine came out argued the call and the umpires called Baerga safe and the Mets won and the crowd was crazy with cheers and boos. Fun ending.

I remember watching this game on pins and needles. Hoping and praying the Mets would win. I just kept thinking there was no way we could get swept at home by the Yankees. To make things worse, the Mets were being no hit. But that old Met Magic prevailed and the Mets won it in the bottom of the 9th.

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!
