Interesting game in San Diego.

Clay Kirby no-hit the Mets for eight innings but was losing 1-0. The San Diego manager went for the win and pinch-hit for him in the bottom of the eighth. San Diego didn't score and their bullpen lost the no-hitter in the top of the ninth when the Mets scored twice and went on to the 3-0 victory.

I recall listening to the game on the radio while in bed. Lots of dabate about whether the manager did the right thing in the days after the game.

Hot summer day in NYC for this 15 year old. I ate a chicken hero that didn't agree with me and was up all night feeling ill. Remember Jim McAndrew besting Clay Kirby who was removed by manager Preston Gomez despite throwing a no hitter, he was trailing 1-0 at the time. Given the sad state of the lowly 2nd year Padres, what was he thinking?

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.
