METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 31, 1967 GAME:

I remember watching this game with a great deal of anticipation. Bo Belinsky had a lousy record at the time of this start and I fully expected the Mets to light his ass up in this one. The Mets scored two runs in the first inning and I figured they would knock Belinsky out in the next inning or two. Belinsky then mowed down the Mets for eight straight innings, giving up two hits, both to Tommie Davis the only major league hitter the Mets had in the line up that day. This game taught me an important lesson about baseball and how unpredictable games can be. I still remember this particular game more than forty years after the fact because of this valuable lesson I received that July afternoon.

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!
