First game of a DH. I think the Mets were only about 5 games behind the Expos at this point so it was a big DH. It was a giveaway game, advertised as receiving "a Cream Filled Cake" as only Murph could say. Turned out to be a Twinkee! Twinkee Twi-nighter! The left field field level and Loge had a huge twinkee fight mid game. Oh, thr game...Mets score late and often, I think a Joel Youngblood 3-run job capped a big late inning, to win, close the gap to 4 and set the stage for a memorable game two.

My memory of this game was the Twinkee give away day. They were giving away a case of Twinkees to whoever was sitting in a randomly picked seat. The person that won was sitting above me on the third base side of the field. Sitting below me was a Expos fan with his nice white Expos jersey. You know how New York fans are; don't come to our home and be wearing the opposing teams jersey. Shortly after the case of Twinkees were delivered to the gentlemen that won them, there were Twinkees flying past my head right for the guy in the Expos jersey. A major Twinkee fight was going on and I don't think the Mets ever had another Twinkee give away day to my knowledge.

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.
