In the first game of a Sunday doubleheader at Shea, Rusty Staub leads off the ninth inning batting for Junior Ortiz and singles to center. It is Staub's eighth straight base hit as a pinch- hitter...a streak that negan June 11 against Montreal.

That streak tied Dave Philley for the all-time record. Philley actually had nine stright pinch hits but the first eight were at the end of the 1958 season and the ninth was on Opening Day of 1959.

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!
