Went to this game with my mom, grandma, and dad. We sat in the field level near third base. What a classic! It felt good to be at a key Mets game within the last month of the season for a change. Things looked bad at first as they were down 4-1 going into the bottom of the fifth on home runs by Kenny Lofton, Pat Burrell (of course), and a RBI single by Jimmy Rollins. Mets looked flat and my mom was seemingly throwing in the towel. However, the Phillies' lead was down to 4-3 by the bottom of the eighth. Mets had two runners on with one out against the tough Ugueth Urbina, Ramon Castro comes up, and BAM! The crowd went wild after he hit a home run. Braden Looper came in and closed it out. The next day in my 8AM class, these two guys tell me how they saw me on TV. I thought they were just messing around. Then, I got a voicemail from my friend Jim telling me the same thing. Anyway, I had the replay taped and there I was in the bottom of the fifth when they showed the crowd during Carlos Beltran's at-bat. An awesome memory added. Too bad they could not continue the momentum.

The last "hurrah" of 2005. R. Castro put our Mets within .5 games of the Phils for the Wild Card spot with a dramatic 3-run dinger. Then the next night Pedro gives up a lead and the roof caves in for the next 2 weeks. But the hope of a great Met team for the future is still there.

This was the high point of the Mets season, when I thought the Mets were going to the playoffs. They were down 4-1 and they began chipping away and then Ramon Castro stepped up and hit a monster home run to left and the Mets won. This put them 1/2 game out of the wild card, but that was the closest they would come.

Great night because of the Castro home run, but also because Mike Cameron made his first Shea appearance (he exchanged lineup cards before the game) since his collision with Carlos Beltran in San Diego, and Mike got a terrific reception from the crowd. Also, we had a chance to meet Davey Johnson, manager from those great '80's teams, who was making a rare appearance at Shea.

Great game. Key play was Beltran throwing out Kenny Lofton at home plate in the 5th (Chollie was ejected arguing the call). We didn't have enough to maintain the momentum.

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.
