Come on!!! I know Barry Bonds is great and all but do Mets fans have to give him a standing ovation when he hits a home run? No way. I can't figure it out. I'm a Met fan and I root for the Mets first and everything else is secondary. I respect Barry Bonds but I would never cheer an opponents home run, never. It was nice to see the Mets fans give Alfonso a standing O as a great ex-Met (who has pretty much crapped the bed for the Giants) but that was only applauding his appearance in the game. If he had homered I would not have appluaded. There is a difference and I would not applaud Bonds' appearance. But he is awesome. The Homer he hit off of Weathers in the 9th was a rocket shot. It's amazing that he is hitting over .500 against Weathers. It was nice to see Heilman get a win but he was hardly great. He could have easily lost. Also nice to see Grant Roberts have a decent inning.

The Mets announcers said that Mets fans got what they wanted, a Bonds show and a Mets win. Please! I root for a no-hitter every game I see, not for the opponent to have a great game but lose.

I think this was the game where the Mets had a video tribute to Edgardo Alfonzo who had ended up with the Giants. Nice moment.

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.
