I remember going to this game. Even though the Mets won the game I was disappointed that Sparky Anderson chose this day to rest most of the Big Red Machine regulars. Instead of Morgan, Bench, and Perez I got to see Flynn, Plummer, and Driessen. Oh well, such is life.

This was my first trip to Shea and my first baseball game ever. I remember that it was unbelievably hot and sticky. I remember that Ed Kranepool knocked in the winning run - it may have been a homer. It's been a non-stop love affair ever since.

The only run in this game came in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI single by Bruce Boisclair.

Jerry Koosman pitched a five-hit shutout and struck out eleven. The Reds, who had a 13.5 game lead over the Dodgers coming into the game, rested Pete Rose and Joe Morgan this Sunday afternoon. Future Mets George Foster and Doug Flynn had two hits each for Cincinnati.

This was my first game. I remember being so excited I couldn't sleep the night before, I was ten years old and have been to many games since. I was a little disappointed that Rose and Morgan were not playing but seeing my Mets in real life for the first time was something I'll never forget.

An interesting footnote: Bud Harrelson scored the winning run and a few hours after the game got married!

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.
