This is a fine example of how great this game of baseball is and how it can humble you at times during a 162 game season.

First baseball might have to take a long and hard look at instant replay just for home runs. Because this is twice in less than a week that the Mets have been victimized by a wrong home run ruling.

Second the Mets looked like they were getting out of that horrible 9-run inning with just the umpire-aided home run but it was not meant to be. Two tough errors and then the doors were blown off the FORD!!! I stayed up till after 1 a.m. to watch thinking maybe, just maybe the Mets could come back. They tried they really did try but came up a little bit short.

Third and my last point is why didn't anyone go out and talk to Oliver Perez after Shaun Green's error? It befuddles me! You would think with all of his so-called mental lapses, him losing his arm angle, someone would have went out to talk to him. No they went to talk to him after they scored I don't know 4 or 5 more runs. I think that was too late. I love the way Oliver has pitched so far this year but I think he needed a go get them rah! rah! rah! pep talk after the second error.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
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!
