Larry Laughing at the Late 70's

This game marked the end of Ken Henderson's epic 7-game Mets career, so memorable that I have no memory of this game, only read about it recently. I never noticed his departure due to the ignorable impression he left on me for those precious few days. I only recall a veteran named Keith or Ken (Could it have been Harrelson?) playing RF only because the Mets couldn't find anyone else. It wasn't Harrelson because I would've made the instant name association to Buddy. But the connection to Steve Henderson is not lost on me: the immediate game before, Steve suffered a career altering beaning courtesy of Rick Reuschel. Ken Hen sustains a fateful foot injury running into the RF wall, which can also tie him to the other gem we got for Seaver,Pat Zachry. Your 1978 NY Mets: the Clown Paupers of MLB - starring the Hendont's!

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.
