First of all, it was very COLD!!! 44 degrees at gametime which is better suited for Joe Namath and the late "Big Cat" Ernie Ladd than for Matt Harvey and Yonder Alonzo (BTW, that's a great name). Pol Pot Bloomberg's soda law was in full effect because the Big Gulp type cups were NOT to be around (although the law was struck down by a judge). It's a good thing that I live in New Jersey where my governor Chris Christie (a Mets fan) would take Bloomy's legs and make what happen to that Louisville hoops player look like the sniffles!!!! Matt Harvey (his birth certificate says the Nutmeg State and NOT the Bahamas, so he knows about pitching in the cold) was great 7 innings and 10 K's. Buck, Duda, and Davis all hit home runs. It was so cold (More cold than the 2007 home opener at Shea) that I took refuge into the Promenade Restaurant and chatted it up with Mets fans and a few Padres rooters, a couple of SD transplants living in the Apple. I gave them a fact that the Padres were close to moving to Washington, DC in 1974 before Ray Kroc (the founder of McDonalds) bought the team and kept it in San Diego! Plus I gave a few dudes wearing the garbage Yankees hat some choice words (NO profanity) but with the Miz's WWE catch phrase "REALLY?". I should've thrown in a couple of "GO RED SOX" as well and I will be back to Citi when the supposed global warming kicks in and the fans aren't dressed up like they're watching the bobsled trials at Lake Placid!

Matt Harvey pitches seven shutout innings. He strikes out ten, gives up only one hit and faces only one batter over the minimum. WHY DID HE NOT FINISH THE GAME???!!! Relievers in the last two innings allowed four runs. Great game, but a pitching gem ruined by too much bullpen dependence.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

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!
