Most people thought this game was over at 5-2 in the 7th, but I had faith. It wasn't a huge deficit and the Reds suck. Wiggy was great tying it up with a double to left center and Tony Clark hit another clutch home run to win it. even Benitez didn't blow this one. It made me remember the other times the Mets went into Cinncinati and swept the Reds. I remember it happening an inordinate amount of times, although that could be just a fuzzy memory. Unfortunately, when the Mets did sweep there, it was usually followed by a Reds sweep at Shea. It's definitely happened more than once. I hope it doesn't happen this time around.

The last ballgame I watched with my father. We sat in his hospital room by ourselves watching the Mets fall behind 5-2, and reflected on thier sorry state of affairs. Somewhere in the middle innings he fell asleep and the Mets rallied. When he awoke, I informed him of the comeback and he murmured through his parched lips; "Oh splendid". There was something hopeful in his voice, maybe this was a sign. Despite being a grown man as well as a professional, in the recesses of my mind where that ten year old kid still rules, I somehow took this as a sign as well that my dad would somehow rally from what I knew to be a terminal condition. He died a few weeks later.

Rest in peace, Dad. Hit 'em straight.

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!
