Carlos! Carlos! Carlos!

I sat through a mucky afternoon game as a youth during the playoffs in 1988, and I would liken sitting through this game 18 seasons later to that game.

Rain, not hard rain, but annoying, misty rain, fell from the 3rd inning well into the 9th, never stopping the game, but soaking the players, the field and the fans. Unlike in Philadelphia, the Mets played through, and had a 3-1 lead with Wagner on for the 9th.

Wagner blew it. I had visions of John Franco allowing the lead run and the Mets losing, but Wagner managed to get out of the jam with the tie.

Stunned, soaked and frustrated, my friend and I departed our seats in the Upper Deck as the game moved into the 10th, moving to the Mezzanine, right next to the Pedro Martinez Salsa Section, which definitely lightened the mood.

Leading off the 11th inning, a shallow pop fly was hit into no-man's land between Matsui and Beltran. They both charged after it, but it appeared hopeless...Until Endy Chavez came flying in from right, dove, and caught the ball.

Finally, leading off the 12th for the Mets, Carlos Delgado ripped one out into the Bleachers in left, raised his fists coming around first, and jumped on Home Plate, ending a game that could have very easily slipped away.

Billy Wagner blew the game... again. Pedro was denied his 6th win, just as he would be over and over after this. But, in the end, Delgado, with a flick of the wrists, lifted one over the fence and ended it. Let's Go Mets!

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.
