METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 27, 1965 GAME:

Bob P
October 2, 2005
Heading into this game, tonight's starting pitchers, Warren Spahn and Darrell Sutherland, had combined for 362 career victories. Spahn owned 361 of them!

Sutherland pitched pretty well in this game; he allowed just one run, on a Willie McCovey home run, through six innings. But in the seventh he gave up a single to Jim Ray Hart followed by a Len Gabrielson home run and Sutherland was soon taking a shower.

Tom Parsons and Jim Bethke could not contain the Giants after the Mets pulled within a run on a Charley Smith pinch-homer in the seventh. After an error by Smith, Parsons gave up back-to-back homers to Mays and McCovey in the eighth. Bethke got the first two outs in the ninth but then walked Mays and McCovey and gave up a three-run homer to Hart.

The win for Spahn was the second-to-last of his career.

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!
