Thru This Game


April 23, 2002
An inauspicious debut for new Mets Manager Bobby Valentine. Mets took a 3-0 lead into the 8th, thanks to a 2 run HR by Mets immortal Roberto Petagine, and Mlicki was crusing, but got into trouble, and finally was done in when Steve Finley walloped a 3 run HR off him, which gave the Padres the 4-3 lead and the win. There would, obviously, be better days for Bobby V.

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.

Thank you!
