METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 6, 1999 GAME:

The Mets had to win one game at Yankee Stadium to earn any respect from the fans in New York and Roger Clemens was pitching against Al Leiter. The Mets managed to absolutely murder Clemens, including Piazza hitting his 10th home run of the year off Clemens to start a rivalry that would end in more than home runs. The Mets would end up winning that game 7-2, with Clemens only pitching 2.2 innings.

This was the most important game of the 1999 season. Going into this game the Mets were enduring a tough losing streak that put them at 27-28 55 games into the season. To add to that, the night before Steve Phillips had fired 3 of the Mets coaches.

However, Bobby Valentine shouldered the load for the team and put his own job on the line; he promised that if the Mets did not play at least .600 ball over their next 55 games, he would resign as Mets manager. With their ace on the mound, the Mets not only won this game against the Yankees, but 40 of their next 55 games, good for a .720 winning percentage. The Mets would continue to battle the rest of the way, eventually taking the wildcard after a 1 game playoff vs the Reds, making their first post season appearance since 1988.

And this was the game that started that miraculous turnaround. LETS GO METS!

Al Leiter saves the '99 season. Luminous times would follow this game, as would another Piazza home run off Clemens when the Subway Series came to Shea.

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.
