I remember it was almost 90 degrees and sunny. I left Shea with a sunburn. I was and wasn't excited for the game because the Mets sweep by Montreal. The crowd yelling nasty things when John Rocker was introduced and as it would turn out to be one, if not the final appearance with Braves even though he didn't pitch during the series. Anyway, Piazza homered twice, Shinjo got his first MLB home run and his first curtain call. Bentiez gave up a 9th inning home run (what else is new). The Mets raised the 2000 NL Championship banner in centerfield with the rest of the pennants. They wore the 20/60 patch for the first and only time of year. One of the games that WASN'T a indication of the topsy tirvy that would come.

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!
