Tough loss, considering what was involved.

Brian Rose, who would come back to pitch horrendously for the Mets in 01, started for the Sox this night and stifled the Mets. Gave up 3 or 4 hits over 7 shutout innings, and then got lifted. Sox led 2-0 in the 9th when they brought in Tom Gordon, who immediately walked Olerud and then gave up an absolute BOMB to Piazza, who stood and watched it for a few seconds to tie the game.

The game went to the 12h Inning, where the Mets turned a nifty rundown play to nail Damon Buford at the plate on a slow grounder by Jose Offerman, but during the Rundown, Offerman went to 2nd, and sure enough, next batter John Valentin poked a single to left to score Offerman. Mets threatened with 2 walks in the bottom of the inning, but Ventura grounded out to end it...And oddly enough at that exact same moment the Knicks defeated the Pacers at MSG, a win that put them in the NBA Finals, and instead of a sullen murmur to end the game, there are raucous cheers and LET'S GO KNICKS chants as the stadium emptied out.

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!
