METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 12, 1990 GAME:

Frank Viola wins for the seventh time in seven starts at the beginning of the 1990 season. No other Mets pitcher as of today has ever won his first seven starts of the year.

Only one member of the Dodger starting lineup had a hit: Mike Sharperson, who had three of the four Dodger hits that Frank allowed. Pinch-hitter John Shelby had the other Dodger hit.

Here's what happened hours after this game: Mets manager Davey Johnson and Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda went to Radio City Music Hall to appear in the HBO's "Comic Relief" show and both managers tossed soft baseballs to Billy Crystal who proceeded to hit them into the audience and the higher he got into the upper deck of RCMH, the more money they would raise for the homeless. A wonderful gesture and priceless moment in Mets history in my opinion!

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

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.
