I shut this game off in the first inning. The reason for this was not because the Mets fell behind so early, but because I couldn't tell which team was the Mets. On this day, both the Mets and Diamondbacks wore black shirts and black hats. They looked exactly alike! I couldn't watch a game in which I couldn't tell my team from the other. Seeing the result of the game later, I was glad I did.

This has been a problem in the major leagues ever since owners decided to add alternate jerseys to their teams' wardrobes. There have been many games that have had both teams wearing dark shirts, quite often the same color. It's important to distinguish one team from the other, especially if one of those teams is your own. What ever happened to basic home and away uniforms?

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!
