METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 4, 1990 GAME:

Educated Fan
November 5, 2006
Here was the turning point of the 1990 season. The Mets had been red hot the past couple of months, going 40-15. Also, they had two 9th- inning comebacks on the road this past week.

The turning point came in the sixth inning. The Cardinals have 1st and 3rd, one out, and Todd Zeile at the plate. The Mets are hoping for a double play, and Todd Zeile chops one right back to Gooden. But Gooden chooses instead to throw to 3rd and try to catch Willie McGee off base. He got back safely. Now the bases are loaded with one out, and the next batter Terry Pendleton promptly clears the bases with a 3-run double. Even the Mets radio announcers did not understand why Gooden did that.

From this game on, the Mets would be a mediocre 30-30 and would miss the playoffs once again.

Terry Pendleton was a huge nemesis to the Mets on several occasions.

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!
