METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 18, 1998 GAME:

This won't be remembred as well as any of the final 5 chokes in '98, but I almost knew we lost it on this night, a Friday with a full house at Shea. I sat there in the Mezz above the auxilary scoreboard and watched Franco cough up a 3(?) run lead in a game we absolutely HAD to win... Brant Brown had dropped a flyball sparking a total Cubs giveaway earlier that day in Chicago (we were in a 3-team race for the WC with the Giants and Cubs and every game counted). That long post-game walk down the ramps at Shea that night was the ugliest I've ever seen Shea. That's saying something!

I've been informed this wasn't the same day as the Brant Brown goof... ooops. Everything else was true I swear.

I went to this game and sat behind home plate on the first base side and the Mets were winning 6-4 but in came Franco, Mr. Blow-it-All, and definitely not Mr. Reliable, and he gave up 3 runs and totally blew the game. After this loss, I was really angry because, once the Mets lost this game, I knew that they weren't going to get by the Giants and the Cubs in the playoff race. We came out of the stadium and everyone was chanting "Let's Go Yankees" and I joined in. That's how mad I was.

The forgotten game that really killed our chances in the 98 wild card race.

According to retrosheet.org; 34,862 attended this game and I was there with my 2 nephews who had gotten the tickets through a family friend. A tough loss for the Amazins and if you look at the lineup for this game for the '98 Marlins (who were somewhat depleted after Mr. Blockbuster Huizenga's fire sale) you will see 2 future Mets: Cliff Floyd (who homered) and Luis Castillo.

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.
