A sad ending to a sad season. Willie had Piazza batting cleanup because he knew it was gonna be Mike's last game as a Met. Hey, at least he didn't strike out. Piazza batted three times and grounded out to the left side each time, then waved his hat and left the game. Throughout the game they were showing all of Piazza's highlights up on the scoreboard and it feels like it wasn't that long ago when Piazza was hitting 40 homers and 120 rbis and hitting those dramatic shots of Trevor Hoffman, Roger Clemens, and Kevin Brown. But I guess 5 years is a pretty long time. The rest of the game didn't really seem to matter, the Rockies scored twice in the first and then Jacobs and Diaz went back-to-back in the second and it felt like they had a chance, but then they lost 11-3. I guess everyone was just hoping Piazza would go out with a bang like Zeile did the year before when he ended his career with a home run, but Piazza couldn't even get the ball out of the infield.

Historical last game of the 2005 season being Mike Piazza's last game as a Met and the last Mets game broadcast on Fox Sports Net as the organization would be starting up SNY in March of 2006. I always wished that I went to this game but wound up watching on TV instead.

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!
