I remember this game well. I was 13 and some friends and I got together to go to the game before the end of the year. The Mets were about to complete the second year of the 1977-1983 Dark Era and people were staying away from Shea in droves, especially considering that the Yankees had been to the Series in '76, won the Series in '77 and were about to win another in '78. We were able to get amazing seats behind the first base dugout. I had never sat in that section before. Unfortunately, Silvio Martinez was amazing for the Cardinals (it was his ML debut IIRC) and the Mets scratched out two infield hits for the whole game. Things were bad for us Mets fans then.

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!
