I was at this game. It was myself, my older sister, her friend and my major pain-in-the- butt Yankee fan cousin Chris. It was a pitcher's duel between Pedro Astacio and David Wells. Until the bottom of the eighth inning, it looked like it was all Yankees. The Mets offense looked sooo lethargic. My cousin was getting ready to really bust my chops. But, all of a sudden, the Mets got something going in the bottom of the eighth. They were helped by an error. Well, it was runners on first and second with none out. Up came Mo Vaughn along with his mere four home runs at that point. In the back of my mind, somehow I knew he was going to hit a home run. I grabbed my Rosary beads. Then, low and behold, BANG! The Mets had a 3-2 lead. This time, Armando Benitez did his job. It was a 3-2 Mets win and a 2-1 Shea Subway Series win. My sister and I went home smiling and my cousin went home repeating a certain four-letter word. So awesome!

This was a nice game, not only due to the fact that the Mets won, but because three generations of males in my family were there together at Shea, watching it together on Father's Day. A truly great memory. My father and I, long suffering Mets fans, and my grandfather, an old time Yankees fan. On this night, The Fat Fraud (aka Mo Vaughn) did the only positive thing he ever did in a Mets uniform, hitting the game winning homer in the 8th off of the equally fat, obnoxious David Wells. Armando Benitez actually did his job and closed out the game, ensuring the series win for the Mets.

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.
