Jared K

Jason Isringhausen's MLB debut. He pitched a gem that night, and it looked like at least one facet of Generation K (for whiff, which is what the Mets did in choosing Izzy, Pulsipher, and Wilson) would pan out.

Unfortunately, this game was largely overshadowed by the awful TWA 800 crash off the shores of JFK that same night.

Correction, Jared K. The TWA Flight 800 crash happened exactly one year later and on July 17, 1996, the Mets played an afternoon tilt vs the Phillies (I was there because me and my friend bought field level seats off a scalper) and several hours after the game is when the tragedy took place.

Along with Izzy's debut, I remember it was extremely weird to see HoJo in a Cubs uniform during this game. Just didn't look right on him.

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!
