Yet another one of those '87 games that reminded you this was not going to be like '86. Jeff Innis made his major league debut in this one. As a 9-year-old, I was always excited when a new Met made his appearance on the scene. I liked him for about an inning, until he gave up a bomb to Jeff Leonard in the 10th. After that, he was like Doug Sisk to me.

After some research, I'm fairly certain this was the first game I ever went to. About a month away from my 7th birthday, my dad took me to the Big Shea. I was just starting to follow baseball during what I believe was my first year of tee ball. There's no doubt I went to this game because I know I was at Nestle Crunch Glove day in 1987. I've been able to determine that all of the other games I have memories of attending in those days were after this one -- so I think I can label 5/16/87 as the day I was officially a Met fan.

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.
