Great outing for San Francisco Giants pitcher Phil Nastu from Bridgeport, Connecticut. Did not get the "W" but pitched 5 1/3 solid innings and left the game with a 4-1 lead. It is also amazing that Jesse Orosco who took the loss for the Mets is still pitching in 2003 with the dreaded Yankees.

This game is on YouTube. (Who says YouTube is great only for stupid stunts and dunking women underwater?) Bob Murphy doing the TV only a few years before he would move to radio full time. 6000 was the attendance at a time when the 'Stick was a cold concrete dump and light years away from the Giants getting their jewel of a park. FYI, the 'Stick is gonna be no more because the 49ers are saying farewell after the 2013 season as they get ready to open their own jewel of a stadium.

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!
