At the Vet, Kim Batiste hits a walk-off grand slam off Anthony Young to win this exercise in humiliatiation.

Let's see... 15 years old... I was in Center City Philadelphia that night with a group of kids at an Easter trip reunion. Game was on at this restaurant where we ate. Kept looking backwards from my seat to see Phils winning, then losing, thinking the Mets had it sown up in the 8th, when we all left to cruise around to kill time. Knew the game was over soon after, but couldn't find a store window with a TV tuned to ESPN to get final score. Finally got home around midnight and caught the late Sportscenter with highlights of the Mets' and Anthony Young's meltdown...then heard Harry Kalas' emotional call on Batiste's grand slam, and went to bed laughing and smiling. That was the game I finally knew the Phils had the "team of destiny" tag, and that Dallas Green was no antidote for a truly awful Mets squad.

I was 10 years old and my family had scored free tickets to this game because my sister's gymnastics team participated in this little event between a few innings. The seats sucked, way upper deck, first base side, and I was the only Mets fan surrounded by a bunch of rabid Phillies fan hell bent on a championship caliber year. Bobby Bonilla's two HRs that day was pretty much all the offense the Mets could muster in the game. Gooden started the game. He had okay stuff, kept the game tied at 5. In the 9th, still tied at 5, Anthony Young was brought in from the pen. Kim Batiste drills an opposite field walk off Grand Slam HR. It was the most devastating Mets loss I remember, even though the team lost 103 games that year. To lose it in a style like that, it was heartbreaking. Those were the truly dark days of Mets baseball.

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.
