Watching Matt Franco strike out Andruw Jones in a blowout Mets loss! It doesn't get any better than that. Gotta love it!

When the Mets get blown out 11-3, I'm upset. But when the Mets get blown out 16-0, I just laugh it up. That was the case in this game, where the Braves killed the Mets 16-0 and the highlight of the game was when Matt Franco came in and Gerald Williams, future-Met, would hit a homer off him before HE STRUCK OUT ANDRUW JONES! Just that was like the Mets winning to me.

I remember this game well...

I convinced my future Father-In-Law to come to the game with me, and the main draw was that it was fireworks night.

Having to sit through that debacle just to see some fireworks was excrutiating.

The lone brightspot was that Maddux was throwing a no-no going into the 5th.

I couldn't leave because it was firework night. The Mets got their butts kicked bad and Matt Franco pitched the ninth and not John Franco so you know what kind of night that was. I snuck down to field level and the guy asked to see my tickets. I said have you seen the scoreboard? He said go ahead.

A Franco pitched the ninth inning! Just not the one you expected.

Ugh, at least Matty was a better mop-up arm than Derek Bell.

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.
