Koosman got ejected for trying to bean Rick Reuschel. As Doug Flynn said Reuschel hit Henderson and Koosman tried to hit Reuschel--in the head. Flynn said he never saw a pitch go between a head and a helmet---Reuschel ducked. When Koosman was ejected he said to Flynn, "Maybe I should quit. I never miss."

This was not televised,so I remember Reuschel's beaning of Steve Henderson visually as I listening to the radio. It was a historic Mets moment, because Hendu was never Hendu again. He was hit in his front elbow, and the consequences were perceptible. The player who was the key to the Seaver deal, who started 1978 where he left off from his very good rookie campaign became an opposite field hitter with limited power. Already an inadequate left-fielder, now he's a one- dimensional hitter. The Mets should've offered him to any AL team as an excellent part-time DH, for which they might've received value. Possibly to the Yanks for Ken Clay?

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.
