This was the game where Steve Trachsel should have had a no-hitter. Trachsel was pitching a gem and had a perfect game going. In the 6th inning, someone tried to bunt to break up the perfect game, but to no avail. The next guy up was the opposing pitcher, some Taiwanese guy. He hit a double over Timo's head (which he should've caught). What made me mad, was that where I was sitting there were more people cheering the pitcher than Trachsel. I was in the upper deck, which was full of Taiwanse people from Flushing (who knew nothing about baseball). In the 9th inning, someone else got on base. It was initially ruled an infield hit, but after the game changed to an error. Trachsel ended up with a complete game one hitter. It was an enjoyable afternoon game, with a Mike Piazza home run. One of my more enjoyable games at Shea for a while. You know, I don't think the Mets will ever get a no-hitter. It's kind of like Boston or Chicago winning the World Series. And now with Bob Murphy retired, I wouldn't want anyone else to call the first Mets no-hitter!

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.
