Trachsel pitched pretty well this game, but the score shouldn't have been so close. Benitez came into the game in the 9th looking to get the save.

Benitez is throwing hard and he gets the first two batters out. He then gives up a homer into the bleachers in left center. Not a problem; we still have a 2-run lead. The next batter, 3 pitches later, leaves the ball in the Mets bullpen. At this point, the crowd is becoming slightly upset.

The next batter is ex-Met Luis Lopez. Lopez hits a high fly ball, deep to left center, that hits off the top of the wall, and is but a few feet from being the game tying homer. Popez winds up on second witha double.

Eventually, Armando gets the third out without the tying run scoring. The performance, however, was classic for Benitez. The one inning serves as a great definition of Armando -- he got the save, but made sure it wasn't easy.

Went to this game without a ticket, however, I bought one that had me field box and behind home plate from a scalper as I got off the 7 train. It was the hottest Mets game I've been to in all my life. And thank god it was a NIGHT game! I think the game time temp was 96 degrees.

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.
