David Wright saved this game. In the bottom of the ninth, with the Mets up by two and Billy Wagner on the mound, Mets nemesis Pat Burrell came to the plate with a runner on first. Burrell hit a smash down the third base line that looked like an extra-base hit off the bat. Wright dove for it, but the ball hit the dirt in front of the bag and took a weird bounce. Reacting instantly, Wright reached up and grabbed it (maybe with his bare hand), got up and fired the ball to the second baseman, who threw on to first for the double play. I still remember the incredulous call by Harry Kalas: "Are you kidding me? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??"

This game is what I associate with being the height of my Mets fandom in the 2000s. My uncle decided out of nowhere to get tickets for this game, and after I finished my shift at my summer job, we went down to Citizens Bank Park.

The Mets won a slugfest 9-7, and yes, David Wright saved the game with a stab at third that I believe qualifies him for sainthood due to the miraculous nature.

This game was the one that really had me convinced the 2006 Mets were not going to be caught and the Braves run of NL East titles was coming to an end much sooner than anticipated. The win put the Mets at 40-23, extended a win streak to six, and began a three-game sweep in Philly that put them 9.5 up at its conclusion.

Very luminous times.

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!
