Big Reds fan (because of Tom Seaver) living in Brooklyn at the time. I was in 4th grade and played sick to see this afternoon game broadcast on WOR. The Mets led 6-2 going into the bottom of the 9th when the Reds rallied for 4 runs, including a 3-run pinch-hit home run by Harry Spilman. The Mets pushed across a run in the 10th for the win. Incidentally, I remember Denis Potvin scoring an overtime goal against the Flyers in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals the night before. Big Islanders fan as well.

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!
