I'm 27 now and I usually go to 1-5 Met games a year since 1992. I introduce myself that way because this game was the worst game I've ever been in attendance of. Besides losing to the Phillies, the Mets only got 2 hits that day and I believe had 0 hits until the 7th inning. I can't even remember them scoring a run. Then on the last play of the game Reyes injured himself sliding to 2nd base and if I remember right was out for the year. Like I said I'm 27 now and only have vague rememberences of Torborg, but I believe the Art Howe era was as bad as it got in my lifetime. There were just so many games like this under Howe where this team couldn't even hide the fact they didn't care about winning.

This was my first Mets game, I was nine. I can remember the first time walking into Shea and being amazed. I also met Al Leiter and Jason Phillips. The sad part was this is where Jose Reyes' rookie season came to an end with the injury at the end of the game.

Of all the Mets games I've gone to in my life this one was the absolute worst! The Mets didn't even get their first hit until the 7th inning in this one. They just flat out gave up that year.

But what makes me laugh about the 2003 Mets is despite how bad they were they had 3 future hall-of-famers on that team: Roberto Alomar, Tom Glavine, and Mike Piazza. (He's got to make it one of these days!)

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.
