Whenever they think about the risks of using pitchers on 3 days rest in the postseason, they'll think of Darryl Kile.

The home first went like this: Double for Timo, double for Alfonzo, double for Piazza, double for Ventura. One out later, double for Agbayani. My brother & I had great seats and the place was going crazy.

Still, we needed five innings of scoreless relief from Rusch, Franco and Bentiez, and a boneheaded error from Fernando Tatis, to finish them off.

Darryl Kile died in 2002 but before that he had a history of beating the Mets. He had even pitched a no-hitter against them when he was with Houston. BUT YOU DON'T PITCH SOMEONE ON THREE DAYS REST, NO MATTER WHO IT IS! Had Tony LaRussa decided to pitch Darryl Kile in Game 5, a game that I was at, the Cardinals might have gone to the World Series against the Yankees instead of the Mets. But this didn't happen and, as a result, the Mets hit 5 doubles off him in the first inning and the Mets won and, once again, I was going to a game where the Mets could clinch something.

I flew back to town from San Diego for three games of this series with my dad. May Darryl Kile rest in peace, (died in '02) but man, was Shea ROCKIN' that night! Timo Perez was still playing like a man possessed. That first inning was hella exciting with four straight doubles. It was like batting practice!

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.
