Mets really bombed out bad in this game. I even remember Murphy saying his old phrase, "The Mets have really run into harrrrrd times".

I was at this game. We got there early enough to see batting practise. Keith Hernandez had joined the team the month before so Dave Kingman hardly played at this point. During BP Kingman didn't hit and didn't take fielding practice. He was nowhere on the bench during the game. He did pinch hit later on and he hit the highest goddamn popup over the infield in major league history. The ball took about ten minutes to come down. Of course the ball was caught for an easy out. Even when Kingman did absolutely nothing he still managed to leave you with a memory.

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!
