Ray Burris took a hard-luck loss in this game in typical early-80's Mets fashion. The only run scored when the Padres' Willie Montanez got caught in a rundown off third base, but John Stearns's throw hit the baserunner, allowing him to score. Unfortunately, the Mets were mired in a hitting slump at the time, and that one run proved to be an insurmountable lead.

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!
