Mike Piazza's triumphant return to Shea. Everyone brought out their Piazza t-shirts and jerseys that were at the bottom of the closet since October. At his first at-bat he was given the obligatory standing ovation where he tipped his helmet and wanted to get on with the at-bat, but people were still cheering and chanting MlKE PI-A-ZZA! MlKE PI-A-ZZA! So Paul Lo Duca was stalling so Mike can tip his cap again. (SIGHS!!!) So emotional.

Then Mike proceeded to strike out swinging and I jumped up and started chanting STEV-EN TRACH-SEL!!! STEV-EN TRACH-SEL!!!

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!
