I remember going to this game with my father and high school friend Willie and watching Doc break the rookie strikeout record. At the time I remember me and my friends thought he'd be the next Bob Gibson.

Wow, I can't believe it's been 20 years! I gave one of the ticket agents an extra $10 and he put my dad and me 5 rows behind the Pirate dugout. Doc was throwing gas that night. This was before radar guns were showing fans just how fast, but Doc was on. I remember after he struck out Tony Pena for the third time, Pena started barking at the ump. The guy next to us stood up and yelled, "It sounded high, huh Tony!" Only in New York.

We thought we were going to see history this night. Gooden had 15k's thru 7 innings and was as dominant as any pitcher ever was. He finished with 16k's and no walks. This was a great experience for a high school kid even though I was and am a Yankees fan. Seeing my ticket stub last night made me think of this masterpiece pitched by Doc.

I was 16 and won these tickets on the back of a Coke cap. I sent in the Coke cap and they sent me two fairly nice seating tickets. I went with my dad and we watched Gooden make history by breaking the rookie K record. He was unhittable that night. I remember the last batter fouled off quite a few pitches before Gooden got him out to complete the shutout.

If my memory serves, this may have been the best game he has ever thrown. Didn't he have a no hitter going into the 8th??

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.
