METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 10, 1969 GAME:

The Giants had won five in a row coming into this contest at Candlestick Park. Their record stood at 29 and 23, three games behind the first place Braves. A Tuesday night crowd of just 6,038 showed up to see veteran journeyman Don Cardwell of the Mets take on lefty Mike McCormick.

The home team got on board first in the third inning when Bobby Bonds tripled home McCormick. The Mets scored a run in the fourth, a run in the fifth, two in the sixth and broke it open with four in the seventh. The big blow was a three run shot by Mets first baseman Cleon Jones off reliever Ron Herbel.

The Giants scored three in the ninth but it was too little too late. The Mets who eventually caught and passed the collapsing Cubs, won 9-4.

This was the culmination of an eleven game winning streak that got fans believing that the Mets were real contenders. The Mets went into the streak 18-23 in 4th place and with this win were 29-23 solidly in 2nd place seven games out. The first seven wins were at Shea but then the Mets won four more on the West Coast. The Mets finally lost their next game in San Francisco.

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.
