Carl Willey, the Mets' "Maine Man" in 1963, pitched another gem, a six-hit shutout. This was victory number 41 for the '63 Mets, thereby ensuring a better record than the '62 legends. Willey even drove in the Mets' second run (Jim Hickman's leadoff HR scored the first). I don't know if it's a record, but Casey Stengel used three consecutive pinch-runners during the Mets 3-run ninth. The rally began with -- surprise! -- Ron Hunt getting hit by a pitch. Cal Koonce pitched well in defeat and six years later was rewarded by the Amazin's with a World Series ring.

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!
