After a thrilling first game (see previous post) game two started with the Expos grabbing a two run lead in the first....Joel Youngblood hit his second homer of the DH in the bottom of the first to give the Mets the lead. Next pitch was right at Mike Jorgensens head. Remember, Mike was beaned and severly hurt earlier in his carreer while with St. Loius. With that, John Streans come flying out of the doughout and bowls over the pitcher and starts a wild brawl! Several fights, several ejections. Mets lose by a run as Mazzilli lines out with the bases loaded....This DH is still memorable 20 years later!

I was 12 years old when my dad and I attended this game. We had field level box seats, third base side. I'll always remember this one because it was the first time I ever saw a brawl in person at a game. I remember the Mets had taken the first two games of this series and had scored four runs off Bill Gullickson. I remember Jorgensen walking out toward Gullickson, with his bat pointed at him, then Stearns charging out of the dugout at Gullickson. The fans were going NUTS and started the "Let's Go, Mets!" chant during the fight. Most of all, I remember a fan coming out of the stands and kicking Expos' outfielder Ellis Valentine squarely in the behind, then running away. My dad, who didn't like my cursing at anything, probably was either too caught up in the excitement, or sympathized with my anger when, as Gullickson walked off the mound after that and I yelled at the top of my 12-year-old lungs, "YOU SON OF A @!%@#!"

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.
