METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 12, 1988 GAME:

What a frustrating weekend this turned out to be. My cousins and I drove up to Montreal to see all three games of this series (plus the NHL Entry Draft which was held at the Forum). The Mets lost the first two games of the series without much of a fight, but led the final game with Sid Fernandez on the mound. Sid had 10 K's and allowed only one hit through 8 innings with the Mets leading 3-0. We thought we were going to salvage one game and go home with our heads up. Instead Davey Johnson brought in Randy Myers to start the 9th. Myers did not record an out, but did allow 2 hits including a 3-run HR to Andres Gallaraga to tie the game. Hubie Brooks' single won it for the Expos in the 11th. What was Davey thinking?

My first-ever major-league game. I was 15, and a big Mets fan, and my uncles took me to Montreal for the game. Sid Fernandez pitched so well, and I couldn't figure out why Davey Johnson pulled him. Randy Myers gave up a three-run homer to Andres Galarraga (who at the time was leading the league in all three Triple Crown categories, by the way) in the bottom of the ninth, which broke my heart. I've hated Randy Myers' guts ever since that day. Great game, anyhow, especially for the home crowd. And there really was a crowd back then -- maybe 15,000 people, as opposed to the 3,000 or 4,000 who attend games there now.

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.
