Ed Kranepool pinch hit and got a base hit. It was his last at bat for the Mets!

It was also the last game in Mets' history that they were not owned (at least in part) by the Wilpon family. And despite how miserable the season was, they managed to avoid 100 losses with this win.

I remember being at this game. It was Lou Brock's last game and Richie Hebner's last game as a Met. Hebner grounded out in the 8th inning I believe, and we booed him mercilessly. He had stated earlier in the week that he could not wait to get out of NY, so we were letting him know how we felt. On his way back to the dugout after grounding out, and us booing him, he gave us the finger. I will never forget that SOB as long as I live.

Example One
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!
