Thru This Game


September 27, 2001
The Home Run Chase brings a sellout crowd (myself included) to Shea. McGwire is cheered when he comes to bat, cheered when he strikes out, and cheered when he hits a solo HR in the 7th off Willie Blair. A towering blast into the LF bleachers. That HR happened to be his 50th on the season, on his way to what may very well be the former record of 70.

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!
