METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 18, 1984 GAME:

clubhouse report
April 20, 2002
Some friends from high school and I attended this game. It was the day after the Mets opening day disasterous 10-0 loss and the game before Dwight Gooden's Shea debut. Backman won it, hitting right-handed, his much weaker side, with a double into the leftfield corner off Gary Lucas who in '86 hit Rich Gedman with a pitch before Donnie Moore gave up the homer to Dave Henderson. The win ended a four-game losing streak and thoughts of "here the Mets go again" as '84 turned into a 90 win season.

Backman, batting right handed, pulled a double into the corner. This was the game that always made me feel that the 84 Mets would be different, that the franchise was finally back.

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.
