It was Mike Hampton's first start for the Mets, in Tokyo against the Cubs. We figured he'd just blow the Cubs away, but he ended up walking 9 guys. The game wasn't as close as the score makes it seem. It was a bad start for the Mets new ace, but he got better as the season went on.

After last season, the Mets promised to be great this year and I was so excited for the first game of the season that I woke up at 5 in the morning to watch it and Mike Hampton was pitching and I was excited to see him because he had gotten 22 wins with the Astros the year before. However, the game was disappointing as Hampton sucked and the Mets lost to the Cubs in Tokyo and we later found out that Hampton was too good to be true because he couldn't pitch in cold weather.

I coudn't sleep the night of this game; asked a couple of friends over for bagels and baseball. It was unreal watching that game but it was enjoyable watching Bobby V take Don Baylor to manager's instructional school. After all, he did invent baseball. (Just ask him!)

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.
