In his second start in the major leagues, Selma defeated the Braves, 1-0, and recorded 13 strikeouts -- at that time, a record for a Mets' pitcher

Dick Selma became the first Mets pitcher to win his first two starts in the major leagues. Selma threw a ten-inning shutout, allowing just four singles, a walk, and a hit batsman.

Milwaukee pitcher Bob Sadowski took the tough- luck loss. Sadowski allowed just three hits through nine innings, but gave up a single to Joe Christopher leading off the tenth. Ron Hunt bunted Christopher over, and after Ron Swoboda grounded out, Charley Smith delivered the game- winning single to center and the Mets had the win.

Up until this game, I was a noninterested 12-year-old living in LI, NY. The announcing of Lindsey Nelson and Ralph Kiner, and the improbable win in what seemed like a mismatch (weren't they all back then?) made me a Mets fan for life.

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!
