Happy Recap
May 17, 2001
Steve Trachsel gave up four homers in the third inning. I don't know if that's a club record or not, but I sure hope it is. I'd hate to think anyone ever gave up five! In the ninth inning, Desi Relaford, who had been at shortstop the whole game, takes the mound and pitches a perfect inning. This season has gone from bad to horrible, and now has suddenly become absurd.

Attended this game with my mom and we met my uncle and his girlfriend's son. Mets were off to an awful start and then newcomer Steve Trachsel only added ten gallons of fuel to the fire with his four home run inning. We left after the fifth inning. We later turned on the radio to hear the game and the first thing we heard was Gary Cohen say "this is just getting ridiculous." Of course, he was referring to the score at that point. So ironic that Trachsel has become one of their best starting pitchers over the last four seasons.

This was one of the funnier games I ever listened to on the radio. Trachsel was unfathomably terrible.

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.
