As you all know, 1993 was a very forgetable season. However this game was one of the few and I do mean FEW good things that happened that year. This was the nightcap of a doubleheader during a really nasty heat wave that hit the mertopolitan area. Game time temperature for the opening game was 98 and by the time the nightcap ended, it had cooled to a breezy 92.

Of course the Mets lost the opener to a Dodger team that featured 2 upcoming players named Pedro Martinez and Mike Piazza. ln the night cap (this game) the Mets took an early 3-0 lead and looked like were going to salvage a split. Of course the Mets blew it and the game went into extra innings. Partially because said Pedro Martinez held the Mets scoreless for the last 2 innings of regulation.

They almost blew it in the l0th but were able to keep Brett Butler stranded at 3rd. Then in the bottom of the l0th, the Mets were threatening when Bobby Bonilla stepped up with 2 on. Everyone was cheering for a hit, because it would bring in the winning run. He got a hit alright, the hit resonated throughout Shea and hit the top of the cup of Budweiser on the sign on the big scoreboard in right-centerfield.

To this day, I can still hear the sound of Bobby Bo hitting the ball. It was one of his few, and I do mean FEW highlights as a Met. Suddenly all of us Met fans who braved the heat through both games went home feeling pretty cool.

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.
