A day after the Mets get their first win, they draw eleven walks in this game, and still lose. Reds rookie Sammy Ellis goes six innings and allows just one hit with all the walks, and the Reds win, 7-3.

The 21-year-old Ellis will walk 29 batters in 28 innings for the Reds before heading back to the minors for more seasoning. Ellis wound up with a 10-3 record (mainly in relief) in 1964; then he won 22 games as a starter in 1965, and made the '65 all-star team.

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!
