This was the game where Jay Payton got a case of mistaken identity: he thought his name was "WALTER" Payton and -- while representing the tying run -- was gunned down trying to go 1st to 3rd on a shallow base hit.

A very bittersweet game for the Amazin's, not only they lost; it was also the last Mets game to be telecast on WWOR-TV (Channel 9) after 37 wonderful seasons. After the '98 season all local over-the-air (aka non-cable) games have wound up on WPIX (Channel 11). As the legendary rocker Chrissy Hynde once sang "Part of my childhood was gone". Speaking of rocker; the then-quiet John Rocker got the save for Atlanta but that Macon redneck would NOT be quiet for long.

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!
