This was the smallest crowd in the history of Shea - about 1,800 on hand for the action. It was a day game. The crowd was so sparse, I could hear Dave Parker shouting from his perch on the dugout railing. He was wearing a warm-up jacket and listening to a Walkman.

Stve, you're right...the official attendance was 1,754 for this Tuesday afternoon game as the Mets picked up their seventh win of the month of September against 21 losses. At this point the Mets were 22 games behind the first place Expos, and the Pirates were just over .500 and eight games out of first place.

The Mets scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to win the game, with the lead run scoring on a sac fly by Alex Trevino.

The starting lineup for New York featured three rookies who were all called up that September for their first taste of the major leagues: Mookie Wilson, Hubie Brooks, and Wally Backman.

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!
