It was Mike Hampton's first start for the Mets, in Tokyo against the Cubs. We figured he'd just blow the Cubs away, but he ended up walking 9 guys. The game wasn't as close as the score makes it seem. It was a bad start for the Mets new ace, but he got better as the season went on.

After last season, the Mets promised to be great this year and I was so excited for the first game of the season that I woke up at 5 in the morning to watch it and Mike Hampton was pitching and I was excited to see him because he had gotten 22 wins with the Astros the year before. However, the game was disappointing as Hampton sucked and the Mets lost to the Cubs in Tokyo and we later found out that Hampton was too good to be true because he couldn't pitch in cold weather.

I coudn't sleep the night of this game; asked a couple of friends over for bagels and baseball. It was unreal watching that game but it was enjoyable watching Bobby V take Don Baylor to manager's instructional school. After all, he did invent baseball. (Just ask him!)
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
