This was a frustrating loss for the Mets. Bill Hands was dominating for the Cubs. My most vivid memory of the game is Ken Boswell's at-bat leading off the top of the eighth inning. He hit a hard grounder that bounced off Ron Santo's glove and a few feet into foul territory. Boswell should have stayed at first base but tried to get to second on the play. He was easily thrown out by Santo. That was the Mets' last scoring opportunity.

At Wrigley, the Cubs top the Mets 1–0 to give Bill Hands (11–7) the win over Tom Seaver (14– 4). Billy Williams singles home the winner, boosting the Cubs lead to five 1/2 games. After the last out, Ron Santo jumps up and clicks his heels, igniting a roar from the crowd. The Mets think it's bush.

How is it that this premier third sacker is NOT in the HOF? Along with Gil Hodges, a blatant ommission.

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.
