This was my very first Mets game. I had barely turned 7. I had seen softball in Brooklyn schooyards and baseball on black and white TV, and I don't think I actually realized that baseball was played on grass! And the outfield was so HUGE compared to the infield! That was amazing! Anyway, Joe Torre hit .315 with 36 hrs that first year in Atlanta, Aaron had another 44 hrs, Felipe Alou had another 31 and hit .317, but I had no idea who any of those players were. All I knew was that the Mets were MY team, and therefore were the best team, and they won.

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!
