I was at this game and here is what I remember - Cards' Mike Torrez was issuing an intentional walk and a teenager behind us yelled "wild pitch" and sure enough the pitch got by the catcher and the Met on 3rd base scored! Also, my favorite, Ron Swoboda, came in the game late and won it in the bottom of the ninth with a bases-loaded walk!! Imagine Rocky waiting out a walk in that situation! Also Al Hrabosky, later of Mad Hungarian fame with the Royals, pitched that night as an unknown rookie, and I remember thinking what an unusual last name.

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!
