One of the worst losses in Mets history. As a met fan, you had to be thinking there is no way for a replay of the previous Sunday at Shea. I was at a wedding, checking the radio in the parking lot between beers, and Leiter was absolutely cruising. And then the ultimate Armando meltdown. He permanently lost the faith of the fan base that day.

What a disgrace. Were there any words for this game? The Mets, running high and playing very well for the better part of the month, get themselves into position to finally dispose of the Braves. After losing the big first game in Atlanta, where they've just been horid, the Mets take a 5-1 lead into the ninth, only to watch Benitez choke and filthy Franco serve a pitch my grandmother could have it out of the yard. That was basically the Mets season right there. They eventually won the next day but that 2 game swing really threw them off...I believe it would have cut distance between them and first place Atlanta to 2 games...anyway, the Mets lost, and losing just continued the following season, into the next and into present day...miserable.

Just when we thought we put the final nail on the Braves coffin. It didn't happend. I felt bad for John Franco because it really wasn't his fault. Bentiez should had been the "closer" he was meant to be and end the game. Another Pennant hope dashed in 2001.

This was it. Do or die. And Benitez made them die for the most part and Franco put the nail in the coffin.

One of the worst losses in Met history. Benitez and Franco, as always, choked under pressure. What could have been...

This is the worst regular season loss in my memory. I don't think I uttered another word the rest of the day. It felt like someone kicked me in the stomach after Brian Jordan's grand slam. I thought that throwing darts at my dartboard with the Greg Maddux card attached would help me feel better, but it didn't work.

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.
