A weak two hit effort from the anemic 79 Mets. My lasting memory of this game was Willie Monnnntannnezz trying to nonchalantly snatch a ground ball and having it bounce off his glove into RF. The next week Willie was off to Texas for a pair of socks and a water cooler. I don't think the Mets would have even been able to get Rich Chiles for Willie at that point.

Remember comparing Willie to the Cardinals' Hernandez and wonder why the Mets never seem to get real ballplayers.

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!
