METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 19, 1972 GAME:

Mike
December 2, 2001
The first major league I ever saw. The Mets were playing the Big Red Machine. Dave Marshall was playing right field and allowed a ball to go through his legs. Staub was out for the season with a broken hand, Cleon, Harrelson and Boswell were out of the lineup as well. It was Brent Strom's major league debut. The lineup was Kranepool, 1b, Lute Barnes, 2b, Teddy Martinez, ss, Garrett, 3b, Agee, lf, and Grote, C. I can't remember who was in left that day. The Mets lost 5-0. Bench hit a home run and a double. Joe Morgan made a spectacular play at second.

Mike, if you are still reading these boards, it was John Milner in LF and Dave Marshall in RF for this game. It was actually Brent Strom's second appearance, he had broken in three weeks earlier against the Expos. Johnny Bench homered leading off the second inning and later singled to help build another run.

Jack Billingham pitched a three-hitter (all singles) for the Reds.

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.
