This was one of the best games Warren Spahn pitched as a Met and the only run came on an opposite field home run by his opponent that night Jim Bunning. Spahn also doubled as the pitching coach and critics felt he left himself in games too long for the short period of time he spent in New York.

At New York, the Phillies Jim Bunning hits a home run and beats Warren Spahn, 1–0. For Bunning, it is his 6th complete game victory against the Mets in six starts, three of them shutouts. Yogi pinch hits late in the game and somewhere there is a self-created score sheet that I had authored while watching on Channel 9.

A cold night in the upper deck of Shea, but what a game to watch. 2 hall of famers going at it, with the junior Bunning providing the margin with a home run over the right field wall. We got in through Borden milk coupons, so how much better could it be? If only Spahn had hit the homer.

What a forgotten Met classic! Two Hall of Fame pitchers hooked up in a 1-0 double complete game with Bunning nailing Warren Spahn with a solo home run. Yogi also makes one of his 4 appearances for Mets.

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.
