Happy Recap
September 7, 2000
UGH! What a miserable game. After a hot August, the Mets suddenly couldn't win at all in September. It looked like they would win this one, though. Bobby J. Jones didn't make it out of the third inning, but Bobby M. Jones relieved him, and pitched four strong innings. The bullpen was handed an 8-5 lead, but it all came apart in the 8th. Turk Wendell and John Franco gave up two runs, and, with the bases loaded, Armando Benitez came into the game and on the first pitch gave up a demoralizing grand slam to Benito Santiago. The Mets had "September swoons" in 1998 and 1999, and it looks like they're doing it again.

This game was horrible. I remember the Mets were up 8-5 after the 7th or 8th inning and they blew it.

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.
