Remember this game like it was yesterday. Doubleheader to end the season and it's on channel 9. Unbelievable finish to the second game, could not believe my eyes when Mookie Wilson scored from second base on a ground ball. Just knew next year was going to be different and it was; we were a contender now and it felt so good. Finally had something to get me through high school at La Salle!

John, I'm not trying to be the fact police...but Mookie scoring from second on a groundball did not happen in this game. Mookie actaully did it twice in less than a week earlier in 1983: in the bottom of the twelfth against the Pirates on July 31, and in the bottom of the ninth against the Expos on August 3. You can check the posts under either of those games for more details.

So many good things happened in this game. The Tim Leary era finally began, as he got his first career win--only 6 months after his first career start! And, Rusty came down to the last game with 23 PHs and 23 PH RBIs with the record for each being 25. So he couldn't get the record for pinch hits, but sure enough he came thru with a 2 RBI ph to at least tie the PH RBI record.

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!
