METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 9, 2005 GAME:

Stephen
April 17, 2005
This was the first Mets game I'd been to in over 2 years - had great seats down the left field line 7 rows from the field.

What stands out is in the 2nd inning the Mets had runners on 1st and 3rd with no outs, and 8th place hitter Victor Diaz struck out against Horacio Ramirez, who had not really fooled anyone to that point. Heilman couldn't get a bunt down, and when Reyes flied out I thought "oh bleep!"

Of course, bottom of the inning, Braves have bases loaded with none out, and 8th place hitter Brian Jordan hits a grand slam. To anyone who thinks 8-hole hitters don't matter, well, they do. (Oh, and when the people in the seats next to me finally showed up in the 6th inning, it turns out they work for Brian Jordan in some capacity, and were crushed they missed his slam).

I also rememebr Heilman calming down after the slam and retiring 9 in a row (and 11 out of 12) before Larry Jones homered in the 5th. Not that I ever thought Heilman would throw a 1-hitter in his next start, but I wasn't as down on him as many other Met fans as I left the stadium that night.

Example One
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!
