See also game 44, the first of the doubleheader. I dare anyone to come up with a more wretched Mets twin-bill in their history. Wasn't really there, was glad of that. Never was the cliche "they haven't given the fans much to cheer about today" probably more often said and more true.

So let me know if you were there and what you remembered, if not repressed, seeing that this must have gone beyond even "lovable losers" entertainment.

We were visiting friends in the City and took in this doubleheader, riding the subway to Shea Stadium with some neighborhood kids form Flushing. It was my first time at Shea, and also my first time seeing the Mets play in person. Despite the drubbing, the games didn't seem really out of hand until the later innings when the Pirates poured it on. (or the Mets just fell apart). What I remember most was great pitching performances by Bob Friend and Vern Law of the Pirates this day. Though 40 years ago, I can still recall that in game two Bucs pitcher Vern Law was totally in command and constantly ahead on the count on the Mets hitters all day. Couldn't help admiring a really impressive performance by Pirates pitching.

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.
