The afternoon before this game, Major League Baseball had a big meeting in Montreal to determine if the Expos would stay in Montreal for another season. Jean-Luc, my "French Connection" up there said he saw this big newspaper reporter who only covers the Expos when something REALLY big is going down. The next day it was announced that this would be the last season for the Expos and that they were moving to Washington DC in 2O05.

Which was even more weird 'coz the NHL lockout began a couple of days before so Montreal must have been this big ghost town that winter. Which sucks 'coz Montreal is a great baseball town (obviously taking a big back seat to hockey).

Anyway Glavine pitched a gem and I felt a bit sad afterwards thinking that this would be it for Les Expos.

0ddly enough I ran into Jean-Luc at Shea for the final game of the year vs. Les Expos. He and 2 buses of "Habitants" came down to bid adieu to Les Expos. He told me that a few days after the Mets game up there when the Expos played their last game, Stade Olympic became the biggest funeral home in Canada with just about everyone, including him, crying their eyes out after the game.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
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!
