This is the game in which Casey put Richie Ashburn at 2B late in the game for the first time. Ashburn had only played outfield his entire major league career. A few days later, in the final game of the season (and Ashburn's career), Casey gave him a start at 2B.

I remember thinking at the time that Casey had run out of infielders but the boxscore does not seem to indicate it. There were only three pinch hitters and one other replacement during the game. Maybe Richie just asked to do it. The Mets were losing 9-2. Does anyone else recall the details?

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!
