It just seemed too good to be true. After giving up the bomb to Dunn in the 1st, Pedro was cruising, but when Looper came in to pitch the ninth for the save, I had a feeling that Dunn would do it again.

On a more positive note, the lineup looked impressive. If Reyes keeps this pace up, he'll have about 324 runs scored!

Be prepared to see this frequently: good hitting, decent defense, good starting pitching, atrocious bullpen = a close loss

I was excited watching this game. I knew the Reds sucked and they didn't belong on the same field with us. I fell asleep from the 8th to the bottom of the ninth so I missed Looper's meltdown, thank god. I was stunned shocked disappointed when I woke up and saw the final score but I knew when the Reds come into Shea again that we would sweep them.

The 2005 season started with so much promise. It was the beginning of the Willie Randolph era as well as the first full seasons for Jose Reyes and David Wright. It was also Carlos Beltran's first season as a Met, and in this game, big free agent sign Pedro Martinez was well on his way to a win in his first start as a Met. That is until Braden Looper blew it in a horrible way.

The Mets lost their first five games that year. In one game, the first game of the year, the Omar Minaya disaster waiting to happen became apparent. With Minaya as the GM, the pitching was always patchy at best. Besides Martinez and Glavine, that 2005 staff was borderline triple-A level.

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.
