I attended this doubleheader as part of a trip with my Boy Scout troup. What I remembered the most about these games was that Tug McGraw, who had been traded by the Mets to the Phillies during the off-season, made his first appearances for the Phillies against the Mets at Shea Stadium. Tug had been one of the Mets' most popular players when he was with the Mets, so he received a warm reception from the fans when he made his first Phillies appearance at Shea Stadium.

Tug must have been relishing his first chance to pitch against his former team in their home ballpark. In the first game, Tug pitched three innings to earn a save, and in the second game he pitched four innings to earn the win in extra innings. During the day, Tug gave up no runs and one hits in seven innings, earning a win and a save. Tug earned a measure of revenge against his former team in front of their home fans that day. Clearly, there have been few relief pitchers who had a better single day of relief work than Tug did that day.

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!
