Nice to see mike Piazza hit 2 home runs in this game as the Mets won 4-3. Piazza almost put the Padres ahead in the 8th inning with a blast to deep left centerfield off of Heilman. Mets are now 24 games over .500 for the first time this season. Pedro pitched very well giving up only 3 hits, though 2 of them were Piazza's home runs.

After the Mets jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, Piazza was applauded in his second at-bat, and he proceeded to punch a ball into right for a homer. Everyone cheered and the embarrassed Piazza came out for a curtain call. On his next at-bat he launched one into the left field seats, a shot we were used to seeing, bringing the Padres within two runs. There was scattered applause, a few cheers, and confusion. Then, in his final at-bat, he was booed. Having cheered for Piazza for eight years, it was difficult to turn my back but I booed as well, and when he hit it 400 feet to center I thought the Padres would take the lead, and it was fitting that Beltran, Piazza's successor as team leader, made the catch.

My mother, stepfather, one of my best friends and I went to this game for my 20th Birthday. Piazza showed he could still hit the ball a country mile that night. I thought the one he hit to center was going out. It sounded like the hardest one he hit. The Mets should have blown the Padres away that night, the Pads offense was inept and the team looked sluggish as a whole. Hard to believe they won the NL West. Wagner even gave us a Doug Sisk moment when he gave up a solo shot to Barfield in the 9th but hung on. Milledge showed he had lighting quick speed this game, hopefully the same will come of his bat.

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!
