METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 30, 1973 GAME:

Tom Seaver shuts out the Cards for nine innings, but it's not good enough because the Mets can't score a run despite four hits and seven walks off St Louis starter Reggie Cleveland.

Jose Cruz singles home Lou Brock in the bottom of the tenth for the only run of the game, and the Mets (61-71) will spend the night in last place for the final time this season. The Mets go 21-8 the rest of the way and win the NL East.

The Mets had just gotten out of last place the day before, and this loss put them back in last place for the last time that season. It was pretty devastating and should have effectively ended the season but we all know what happened in September.

Example One
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!
