METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 5, 1977 GAME:

This is why this site is so amazing. I recalled going to this DH as an 11 year old, and the only thing I really remembered was that the Mets swept, despite Tim McCarver hitting a pinch-hit solo homer to tie the opener in the ninth inning.

Torre had just been named manager. Sunday doubleheader was with the first place Phils. Even though the Mets won both games and the fans were hoping that this Met team could build on these wins, you could see and feel that my hero's from 1969 had grown old. Even at 17 years old, I knew that this team was heading in the wrong direction because baseball had changed. Free agency had been born in 1977 and Donald Grant was wrong. Seaver was gone 10 days later.

(Long live The little Blue and Orange Machine.)

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

Example One
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!
