I remember the Doc had it going this game. The only run he gave up was a solo homer to Kruk over the right field fence. Things were looking up after this one.

The first home opener I ever attended and instead of spring (or winter) like conditions; It was 90 degrees at game time. Nails and Wally were in the lineup for the Phils and Hubie Brooks played at RF. The place was rocking after this game and it shoulda been a harbinger of things to come but it was NOT to be.

I don't have any memories of this game, but I did find a scorecard from this game that I apparently went to a day before I turned 13. Looks like it was a good one, better than the previous years opening day loss to the Pirates.

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.
