This was the first of three consecutive Mets games I attended with my friend Mindy. She had the idea of going to an entire three-game series after the first two Mets games we saw were losers (Brewers in '04; Atlanta the next year). "They can't possibly lose three games, right?" she reasoned. Even though we got to see the Mets win a game in person against Florida that April, I thought that the idea of having three chances to win one would be moot. But she insisted on doing it and that it would be fun. Who am I to turn a lady down?

We sat in loge and, unfortunately, my "favorite" pitcher Steve Trachsel was on the mound. That piece of rotten prune danish never won whenever I saw him pitch in person... until that night.

Endy Chavez became Mindy's favorite Met thanks to a bomb of a home run. I had just finished explaining to her that with a runner on first, Chavez would lay down a bunt to put the runner in scoring position when Chavez unloaded. Some bunt.

Mindy also took an immediate dislike of the Rockies players because they all had first names that sounded like they all sang for N'Sync or some other boy band (i.e., "Cory" Sullivan; "Garret" Atkins; "Jamey" Carroll). She can boo opponents with the best of them.

One down, two to go.

This is the first game I ever went. I was 10 years old. I remember I was so excited because it was the first year I started to really pay attention to Mets baseball. I don't remember much but the one vivid memory I had was Endy Chavez pulled a home run over the right field fence. He was the last person I expected to hit one. I also believe he caught the last out leaning over the right field fence in foul territory hit by Yorvit Torrealba. I started to like Endy Chavez a lot more after this game.

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!
