This was the greatest regular season game I have ever attended until 1999, when Matt Franco singled off of Mariano Rivera to beat the New York Yankees.

I sat in left field, upper deck box, first row, overlooking the whole stadium. The stadium was rocking that night, as it was Darryl Strawberry's return to Shea, as a Los Angeles Dodger.

The game had everything, including Straw homering off of Frank Viola, Gary Carter getting a big hit against his former mates, and, best of all, John Franco striking out Darryl to end the game.

Absolutely awesome!

I was thisclose to missing the whole game because a distant relative had died in an auto accident 2 days before and there was talk of the wake being held on Tuesday. But blind fortune went my way; the wake was rescheduled for Wed. (I didn't have anything to do with it) and I watched the game on Channel 9. It was weird to see Darryl in a visitors uniform as well as the Kid. I remember Straw hit a home run and then Franco struck out Straw to end the game.

One clarification to the two earlier posts on this game: John Franco did indeed retire Darryl Strawberry for the final out of this game, but it was on a ground ball to third, not a strikeout. The Dodgers had scored twice in the top of the ninth--the first run scoring on a pinch-double by Gary Carter--off Franco to make it 6-5 Mets. The Dodgers then had the tying run on third and the go-ahead run on first when Darryl grounded out.

Strawberry's homer came in the sixth inning off Frank Viola with the Mets up 6-0 at the time. It was only his second home run of the season in his 25th game as a Dodger.

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.
