I believe this was Torre's first game. He should have quit after the win. I remember Marv Albert reporting on Joe Frazier's KO as Met manager while watching "the likes of Warren Cromartie, Andre Dawson and Gary Carter taking batting practice." I remember the snotty tone in his voice, like who are these guys, they are not worth my time even looking at. Funny, one is in the Hall of Fame, one will probably follow and the third (Cromartie) became a notable character on two continents. You never know...

Mook, this was indeed Torre's first game as manager. The Mets had been swept by the Expos the previous day to fall to 15-30. They responded well to Torre by winning their first three games under him. In fact they were 10-5 under Torre when the stuff hit the fan on June 15 and the team was decimated by the trades.

John Milner had two singles and drove in three runs for the Mets. A crowd of 6,505 can say they were there when Torre started the managerial career that not too many of us thought would wind up like this!

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!
