Took my 11 year-old nephew to his first ballgame this night. Tried to get him into baseball, into the Mets. Then we sat through this rain-soaked monstrosity. My nephew's now a skateboard punk- rocker who could care less about baseball.

The game was long and boring.The only exciting thing I saw was Andy Tomberlin hitting a home run in left field.

This was a simply amazin' game. Andy Tomberlin going opposite field...oh baby!!! That shot was worth the price of admission! Izzy getting the Mets first hit in the latter innings. Izzy gave us everything he could that night, but the Cubbies were just too tough as Ryan Sandberg put on display his home run power.

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.
