Thru This Game


December 2, 2004
Attended this game by virtue of some freebies given out unceremoniously by Freddie and the gang for sitting through a miserable, soggy night at Shea in August. Little do I realize the treat I was in for.

Wright smoked a HR off Ortiz to lead off the 2nd. A beauty off the Loge seats in LF. Valent and Floyd added HRs later on in the game. Wright added a double and single, but fell short of the cycle in his last AB. I don't think triples are his forte.

Our old pal Mr. Chips was booed lustily throughout, as per usual.

But this night belonged to Kris Benson, who tossed his 2nd ML Shutout in this one. His one previous was also against Atlanta, in June, 2000. Benson had his stuff from the first inning on, was perfect into the 5th, didn't walk anyone, 7Ks, didn't allow a runner past 2nd and, thankfully, was able to talk Uncle Art into letting him finish.

Fortunately, Benson has been locked up for a few seasons, so let's hope he can deliver some more games like this one. He simply dominated in this game.

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!
