Reed's "Imperfect" game. In the wake of another perfect game thrown by a certain pitcher on a certain team occupying the same city, the Mets were completely squeezed out of the press. For 6 2/3 innings, however, Mets fans were given a teaser by Reed. I was at this game, and from the 4th inning forward, fans were up with every pitch he threw. McGriff smacked a shot up the middle leading off the 5th...right into Reed's glove. A PH (I forget who) slices a liner to right, and the crowd gasps as Butch Huskey lumbers toward it...dives...And the man caught it! And everyone there thought we were destined to witness history. Finally, it caught up with Reed on a 3-2 pitch to Boggs in the 7th. Doubled to center, out of McRae's reach. Undaunted, Reed did complete the game, K'd a then- career-high 10, and had his first CGSHO. As an added bonus, Piazza chimed in with his 1st Mets HR at Shea in the 4th. A wonderful game thrown by Reed. The man was absolutely unhittable that night.

THIS would be a great game to show on SNY classics instead of the same games they always air. Reed's best game as a Met (besides his October 2, 1999 game) AND Piazza's first Shea homer. I remember this one well.

I remember the excitement that night at Shea. Invariably we knew somehow it wasn't to be, but nice while it lasted. I did not realize until the prior comment that this was Piazza's first Shea home run.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team.

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!
