I remember his game like it was yesterday. I couldn't sleep the night before and couldn't wait for the game. Our ace, Denis Ribant, was pitching. He was 4 games over .500 (unheard of previously). We had a chance to NOT finish last (gasp!). The Braves were starting some unknown rookie (which turned out to be Pat Jarvis, who had some success over the next few years). It didn't get better than this. (Well, I was 12.) Our ace got his clock cleaned early and another disappointing game was behind us.

The ace got traded the next year as did our only true hero, Ron Hunt. I was 12 and I needed a favorite player. It certainly wasn't going to be Tommy Davis or Ken Boyer, so I went with some rookie who pitched fairly well at Jacksonville in '66. That rookie went on to win 311 games and rarely disappointed us.

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!
