Mets Win

I remember this game:

Mazzilli leads off game with a double off left field wall, Mike Easler hits 2 home runs. But Mets Win

February 10, 2004
Just one minor correction to the earlier posting by "Mets Win": Mazzilli had two singles in this game and led off the bottom of the first by grounding out to second base.

Living in Brooklyn and in the 4th grade at the time, my father takes me and my 7-year-old sister to the game with one of our neighbors. Big crowd, pulled into the parking lot just minutes before the game started. Amazingly, my father walked up to the ticket window and bought four box seats down the third base line. Four nice college guys from Pittsburgh are sitting behind us. (Pirates are defending champs at this time.) My sister, in her first baseball game, makes a point of sticking it to the college guys each time the Mets score and at the end when they win. Left halfway through the second game to make it home in time for dinner.

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!
