This was my first Mets game. I believe it was Seaver beating Carlton. Can someone out there confirm? Thanks.

Friz, if you are still reading this board, I can confirm that at your first Mets game Seaver beat Carlton, 1-0. The Mets scored the only run of the game in the 4th inning on an RBI single by the legendary Roy Staiger. Seaver pitched a 4-hitter and struck out 8, and allowed just one hit after the third inning. Carlton wasn't too shabby either: he allowed five hits and struck out six in six innings. The only reason he came out so early was that the Phils had first and third and two out in the top of the seventh, and Danny Ozark sent up Seaver's nemesis, Tommy Hutton, to bat for Carlton. Seaver struck him out.

Bob P., you forgot to mention the most important thing about Seaver's strikeout of Hutton in the seventh. It was Tom's 200th of the year, giving him that total for nine consecutive seasons.

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.
