METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 11, 2004 GAME:

Howard Fein
October 27, 2004
The day started on an emotional note with a touching pre-game ceremony acknowledging the third anniversary of the dreadful terror attacks. For a long time it looked as if the Mets were going to coast to a rare and easy victory, holding a 6-2 lead through the sixth inning. Then the Phillies began scoring off the belaguered bullpen (WHY would Looper be brought out for a five-inning save?!) but the Mets kept tying the score. The crowd, frustrated by the home team's inability to put away the game, was energized by Billy Wagner's ejection for brushing back Cliff Floyd in the bottom on the ninth. Then the Mets tied the score at 9, forcing extra innings. Unfortunately, the Mets' momentum was shot after that; they got on base numerous times in the tenth through twelfth innings to no avail. Tired, hungry and fed up with the many time-consuming pitching changes, we left at the end of the twelfth with the score still tied. As soon as we got the car and turned on the radio, the Phillies had an 11-9 lead. At least we got to see Victor Diaz's first hit and RBIs.

This game, played on the third anniversary of 9-11, saw a final score of 11-9.

After nine innings, both teams had 9 runs and 11 hits.

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.

Thank you!
