METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 1, 1992 GAME:

Howard Fein
June 19, 2004
This was the game that featured the infamous shoving match between Vince Coleman and Jeff Torborg. Coleman was called out on strikes after failing to check his swing. After much arguing, the ump ran him. Vince kept it up, so Torborg came out of the dugout. Player and manager exchanged shoves, much to the delight of the crowd that was numbed by the otherwise dreary 1992 season. The subsequent NL pennant-winning Braves went on to win the game, 4-1. Another all- too-typical outcome for the era.

Howard, wow-I had forgotten all about the shoving match between two of my least favorite Mets of all time!

After Coleman got booted, he was replaced by Ryan Thompson, who made his major league debut in this game and struck out in his first at bat.

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.
