The Mets are 31-12 and have the best record in baseball after this win. But during the game with the Mets up 4-1 Rusty Staub is hit in the hand by a George Stone pitch. Rusty's hand is broken, and he will miss three months of the season.

After Staub's injury the Mets go 52-61 the rest of the way and finish the year 13.5 games out of first place.

I'm pretty sure that this was the first Met game I ever went to. At least it is the first one I can remember. I was 8 years old at the time. I distinctly remember the Mets beating the Braves and Tom Seaver hitting a ground double. I remember him hitting it down one of the foul lines but I can't remember which one. I don't remember Rusty Staub breaking his hand though.

Johnrd, yes...Seaver grounded a double just inside the first base bag in the fourth inning.

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!
