It sure looked like Alay Soler was on his way to the most disastrous debut in recent memory when he walked the first three batters he faced, yielded a single and then a grounder through Woodward's legs. His pitches were all over the place and action was already going on in the Mets' bullpen. But then he settled down and mixed in some really good changeups and sinkers that had the Phillies swinging meekly, with his fastball, which topped 90 a few times. It was too bad that he didn't get the win but we may have found ourselves a new starting pitcher.

The best thing about this team is how they pick each other up. Beltran's homer in the bottom of the first seemed to say "we're going to score for you, kid. Settle down and it'll be all right." And sure enough the Mets erased another three-run deficit and came back to win.

It's been about twenty years since I had such a good feeling about a Mets team.

Team is really rolling now after last night's marathon. Alay Soler was a little nervous in the first and it showed. Walking 3 straight batters to start the game, but settled down and pitched much better than Jose Lima did when he came up. David Wright has found his power once again and it is so good to see with Floyd struggling. If Floyd ever gets heated up with the bat this team is gonna run away with this division. Already opened up a 5 game lead again.

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!
