Was in SF for two straight games, this being the first. Mets set a team record for first inning runs in an away game. It was over before it started. I have a photo of the Candlestick park outfield scoreboard showing that first inning 9-spot.

I was at this game as well. I remember the 9-run first inning, and a Giant fan's comment that if not for the first inning, they would have beaten us 6-4. And as a kid I said, "6-4, blame Bob McClure!"

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!
