It was amazing how I was at this game considering 2 days earlier I've been injured in a nasty fall that almost broke my nose and my right leg was in pain. I sat in the upper deck on the left field side and it rained prior to the game and they were honoring the 40th anniversary team and the fans kept chanting GO ON STRIKE when the Mets started to give up runs to the Dodgers. They lost 10-4 and the strike didn't happen as they struck an agreement just in time.

I went to this game with my father, brother and sister. Astacio got rocked early. If I remember correctly the Dodger pitcher Perez had a perfect game going until the 5th or 6th inning, with the Shea faithful cheering him on until he gave up a hit.

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.
