The big H

A note about this game is that it was part of a doubleheader where Ryan and Seaver were the starters. I am making this note in the part of the split that the Mets won. This was a one admission double header that featured the only two players to come through the Mets system to go to the Hall of Fame.(Hopefully one day this will no longer be true) The only Met memory I had about the game that Ryan won and Seaver lost. I also remember Cub Manager Leo Durocher arguing a call with the Umpire and seeing his eyes popping out of his head. I was sitting up in the top deck at Shea, but his eyes were so popped out of the sockets I could clearly see the whites of his eyes all the way up there.

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!
