Nice win by the team in spite of Howe he made some nonsensical moves. Howe could have had Yates come out in the 7th, and warm up Stanton then he took Stanton out too late. Also he pulled our two best offensive weapons Piazza okay because Wilson did a great job in calming down Moreno in the 11th, but Floyd? It luckily wasn't costly move. The bullpen is totally taxed, Matsui had a nice game today two hits two walks he has six walks already. Yates was dominant spotting his 95 fastball also had a good changup Stanton spit the bit, and cost the kid the win.

To my knowledge, I never scored a game on my birthday (41 and proud of it). For me, one of the busiest birthdays ever in terms of things to do was capped by this great victory.

Zeile's RBI double (BTW, when he swung he looked like he was swinging with a cricket bat instead of a Louisville Slugger) was a nice shot. I remember screaming "Run your ass" to Ty Wigginton on TV while the Expos were chasing the ball around.

Also being superstitious, I was walking over to my parents' cat George and scratching him on the head between extra innings. Sleepy kitty brought the Mets luck.

Additionally, the run the Mets scored was their first tally in extra frames since May, 2003 when Piazza hit a two-run homer to beat San Diego. I also scored that one too at Shea (for veteran Met posters/lookers, that was the game where I had to take a wicked whizz and came back in time to see that great ending).

What a great birthday present. Thank you, Mets!

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.
