I was at this game on a hot, sticky, summer day at Shea and they were facing the Arizona Diamondbacks. Though I had known Bernard Gilkey had been traded to the Diamondbacks, it really felt weird seeing him playing in a D-Backs uniform just a month after I had watched him play in a Mets uniform and just two days after I had first seen the movie Men in Black where he appears in a Mets uniform when he is hit in the head with a batted ball.

It seemed like one of those easy days because our ace Al Leiter was facing Brian Anderson, a guy who one season gave up more homers than any other pitcher in baseball. However, despite a homer by Alfonzo, Anderson pitched well, Leiter didn't pitch as well, and the Mets lost 4-3.

Second game at Shea for me, went with my father and my friend's family.

I remember it being obnoxiously hot and an odd series because it was a three-gamer that started on a Saturday and ended on Monday. Just a bad loss to a bad team which culminated in a series loss the following day.

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.

Thank you!
