My first time to a game! I remember my Dad took our family. Been searching all over for this box score. Remembered it was a perfect night, so excited seeing my first game. Candelaria pitched a fantastic game! I'll never forget this.

I went to this game (a Friday night game) with a bunch of friends from the neighborhood, a couple of weeks after I graduated from college. It was the first time I ever heard or saw John Candelaria of the Pirates who pitched great. Willie Stargell hit a HR off of Tom Seaver, the Mets loser though was reliever Tom Hall whom they had obtained from Cincinnati.

This game was symbolic of the 1975 season. The Mets could generate little offense and their pitching could not carry them in 1975. Thus they could never get much over .500. They went into this game 3.5 games back of the Pirates who also swept the remaining two games of the series to lengthen their lead to 6.5 games. By All-Star break less than a month later, it was a 10.5 game lead and the Mets were for practical purposes out of the pennant race. Tom Seaver held the game to a 1-1 tie for 8 innings. But Tom Hall could not shut down the Pirates in relief. Hall was a little lefty (as Bob Murphy used to say) who was a quality pitcher for years with the Twins and Reds, but had little left by the time he came to the Mets near the end of his career.

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.
