June 11, 2008
I really do not know what to make of the 2008 Mets. After a 10-game span where they went 7-3, they follow it up with 5 losses in a row (4 to a bad Padres team without having to face Peavy, Young, or Maddux). The team just can't seem to get anything going consistently. When they pitch well they don't hit and when they hit well they don't pitch. Not surprisingly in this game they got out to a 5-1 lead on Arizona and the bats went to sleep. Arizona was able to come back and win the game. We see this way too much with the Mets: they get a lead and they sit on it depending on starting pitching that is inconsistent and a bullpen that cannot be trusted. I hate to say it but maybe this is what they are, a .500 caliber team. Maybe Omar Minaya should consider trading away some of the veteran talent like Wagner and Beltran to get young major league ready prospects in return. Build that team around Johan, Wright and Reyes. Even if the Mets turn it around I am not sure if they have a good enough team to compete with the Cubs, Phillies, or D-Backs. I am not giving up on this team I am just being realistic.

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.
