This was a huge game because it was the second- to-last game of the season. It was the second game of a three game series against Pittsburgh and, at the beginning of the series, there was this whole thing about how either Cincinatti or another team (I forgot who)had to lose 2 of 3 and the Mets had to sweep. The Mets had won the first game of the series the night before and now Rick Reed was going to have to beat Pittsburgh. I was at this game and the whole game was Rick Reed. But before the game, we were all watching the scoreboard and we saw that Milwaukee had managed to beat Cincinnatti for the second loss in the series and a cheer rippled through the crowd as we all knew that we had control of our own destiny. Reed pitched the game of his life-- an incredible shutout and the Mets needed to win just one more game!

I was a groomsman at my friend's wedding that day and kept ducking inside his new mother-in-law's house to watch this one. The final score hides the fact that it was scoreless pretty late and the Mets scored 5, I think in the 8th, to put it away. It was a very tense night and I caught a lot of heat for hiding in the house watching.

Example One
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!
