This was a low point of the history of the New York Mets as they looked like a bunch of bush-leaguers on a cloudy Sunday afternoon at Shea. Before the game, they had probably the last Mets Old Timers Day ever featuring the '69 Mets. In the 60's and 70's this would be a hot ticket and would sell out but only 24,855 showed up and they even brought back Jane Jarvis for this occasion but you couldn't even hear her playing the organ for crying out loud.

The only thing I remember was that Tony Gwynn (he truly would have hit .400 if not for the strike) went 3-4 and this was my last visit to Shea until June 17, 2005 due to the strike. The final score was Padres 10 Mets 1 and yes, they could have used some of the players from '69 because the '94 Mets were nothing to write home about!

Just watched the Old Timer's game from this date on one of my old tapes. There are MAYBE 1,500 people there to watch the 69 Mets play. A sad sight.

No wonder the Mets got rid of Old Timer's Day. But to be honest, if they brought it back now (with the 80's and 90's guys available now) I think the popularity would come back.

Example One
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!
