Please feel free to share any memories, good or bad, that you may have of
any Mets player. It's okay to be critical, but please try to keep the
language suitable for family reading. All submissions are reviewed before
they are posted to the site. We will edit or reject your entries if
they use offensive language, excessive HTML tags, or are off-topic.
Also, please remember that this is not a bulletin board. We're looking to
use fan memories to flesh out our profiles of each individual player. When
you post a question, such as "What high school did he go to?" you're
not "sharing a memory" and your question, unless it is combined with an
actual memory of the player, will be removed.
This is also not a place to engage in conversations. You may, of course,
want to respond to a comment made by another reader. And as long as your
response contains memories or opinions of the player in question, that's
fine. But if a conversation should stray off into, for example, a
discussion of the infield fly rule, we'll step in and cut things off.
We've also had to remove a number of comments that don't actually say
anything, such as "I love Mike Piazza!" Or, "He's Mookie!"
Tell us why you love Mike Piazza, or better yet, why he's
Mookie, and your comments will remain. But short statements that don't say
anything simply take up space, and will be removed.
We're also not terribly interested in jokes or silly comments based solely
on the player's name, such as comparisons between Jon Matlack and Andy
Griffith's TV character "Matlock." Or Joe Frazier the manager and Joe
Frazier the heavyweight boxer. Such comments, you guessed it, will be

and we'll look into it and make any necessary corrections.
You may use HTML tags for paragraph breaks, italics, or
hyperlinks. Using giant-sized bold text to make your comments stand out,
however, is not permitted. If you do such a thing, we won't
necessarily delete your comments, but we will remove the tags.
All of the above guidelines are subject to our own discretion. If a memory
bends one of our rules, but is posted by someone who has made quality
contributions in the past, we'll sometimes (but not always) let it slide.
Please don't let any of the above guidelines intimidate you, however. You
don't have to be a hard-core baseball expert to post here. Whether your
comments involve the mechanics of throwing a curve ball, an actual
encounter with a player, or your thoughts on a player's hairdo, please
share them with us. The wide variety of comments that we've received are
entertaining to your fellow readers, and to us as well. Keep them coming!
We are a completely unofficial site, so you may freely and openly
criticize any player, or Mets management, past or present. So if the
player you're writing about was involved in a stupid trade (Jim Fregosi,
for example) don't feel obligated to hold back!
On the other hand, of course, you're welcome to gush about your favorite
players. We're all fans, after all, and hopefully we have more positive
memories than negative ones!
