Thru This Game

I did not attend this game or even have memories of it since I wasn't born until two years later. I do however have a scored original program from this game. Some stats of note. Billy Williams went 3 for 4 with 3 doubles. Ernie Banks had a solo homer in the 6th. Cubs only other run came with Williams scoring on a Ron Santo single. Nye pitched for the Cubs. The Mets scored three times in the 5th with hits by Jones, Swoboda, and Tom Seaver, and a walk to Grote. In the 7th Grote doubled and scored on a single by Charles. Seaver's line, 2 runs, 10 hits, 3 walks, and 3 k's. Just thought someone may be looking for this info someday.

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!
