Second of my two Met games at Candlestick.

Mets were on fire the night before, Cone was on fire all that year but this night he was all wet. So, I was treated to one of only three Cone losses that year. Early in his career, he didn't have a game face - he would just show his dejection to the world.

A Coincidence: I also saw one of Ron Guidry's 3 losses in 1978. (2-1 Balt @Yankee Stadium 2-run hr by DeCinces following a Dent error!)

I had better seats for the Cone loss to the Giants, a few rows off short left field where I think the visiting Mets had their Warmup mounds. And yes, it was true that you had to bring a jacket to night games at Candlestick.

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!
