METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 17, 2002 GAME:

95 degrees F. at game time! Whew! I don't think I have ever been to a game at Shea in hotter weather and I've been around a while and seen many a Met game. I think the 95 degrees was a record for this day -- and in April no less! Anyway, Maddux was good but left the game early because of a blister on his finger so Cox brought in Millwood who was even better. Interesting incident during the game: Met pitcher Jeff D'Amico singled cleanly to right in the 4th inning but for some reason didn't hustle down to 1st base and as a result was thrown out by Julio Franco from RIGHT FIELD! Embarrassing!

What a weird game. 95 degrees in the middle of April, and you could say that they lost because of D'Amico's play in the fourth. There were two out and a runner on third, and Jeff just punched it into right. Everyone was cheering and high- fiving, and suddenly Franco just whirls the ball to first and the umpire, just as surprised as everyone else, throws his arm in the air. Everyone is shocked, and people start yelling at D'Amico. We got a break when Maddux had to leave the game, and we couldn't even capitalize off great pitching and score a couple of runs.

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.
