Now Armando can't even save a meaningless game. I was in my car last night listening to the Mets Marlins game and the Mets were up 2-1 in the 8th. They mention Benitez is warming up for the 9th and then give the list of the Marlins due up. Preston Wilson, Dereck Lee and Juan Encarcion, all home run hitters. So I immediately think the Mets better score at least one run in the 8th (which they don't do) since you know Benitiez can't face three power hitters in a row without giving up a bomb. He may be able to out duel one power hitter, maybe two, but no way can he face three in a row and not groove a fast ball that someone can deposit in the stands. Sure enough Armando gives up a dinger to Wilson, the first batter. That fast ball doesn't always move and good hitters can catch up to it and turn it around. Thanks Armando for prolonging the home losing streak to 16 games. Loser!

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!
