I was at this doubleheader and it was Banner Day! It was the first time that I was ever on the field at Shea as me and my cousin Nancy Ann paraded around the field with our banner: THE METS ARE GROWING A PENNANT ON THE FARM! (Btw, we didn't win anything). I can't remember what I had for lunch last Friday but I can remember the day we made that banner, how do I remember this? It was the day that both Oscar winner Henry Fonda and boxing champ Salvador Sanchez both died. (Thursday August 12th)

Looking at the boxscore is always quite tantalizing, Bump Wills played 2B for the Cubs and he's the reason that Lenny Randle became a Met because Randle threw a few haymakers at Rangers manager Frank Luchessi because Randle had lost his job to Maury's son in 1977. Also of note, 2 players for the Cubs who let ground balls go through their legs in post-season play were in the lineup that day: Bill Buckner (NATCH) and Leon Durham.

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!
