Nice game, at a point in time where the Mets were still in the thick of things, and there was a certain Buzz in the air in what was the first game of the second half of the season.

Trachsel and Milton dueled it out early on. Neither team had a hit through 3 innings. Reyes and Matsui had back to back doubles to start the 4th though, and then Trachsel himself singled home a run in the 5th.

Trachsel had his good stuff this night. Had a no-hitter into the 5th inning, but he ran out of steam quickly, and was gone after Abreu hit a 2-run HR in the 6th to tie the game up.

And so it went. Zeroes through the late innings as each team's bullpen did an admirable job. Looper got out of a couple of jams in the 9th and 10th, but the Mets couldn't break through against Madson in their half of those innings.

Meanwhile, in the Upper Deck, the Philly fans surrounding me began to get more and more annoying, as they nicknamed all of their players.

"LET'S GO, LIE-BEE!"

Lie-bee?

"TAKE HIM OUT, J-ROL!"

J-Rol?

Philly put Roberto Hernandez in to start the 11th. He walked Piazza, followed by Uncle Art pinch running for him with Vance Wilson. This prompted my friend to turn into John McEnroe. "YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!" he yelled.

After a Floyd single and a walk to Spencer, the bases were loaded for Wigginton. 1 out.

"COME ON, MADSON, LET'S GET OUT OF IT!" the Philly fans yelled.

Some fans. They didn't even pay attention to who was pitching.

Wiggy lined a comebacker that Hernandez made a kick save on, picked it up, and threw a palm ball home which "Lie-bee" couldn't handle. Vance scored, and the Mets had a niifty little win, and I got to whoop it up in front of the Philly fans.

How fleeting it would be...

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.
