I didn't get to see this game in person or the first time it was on TV, but the re-broadcast was unique. Most of the time, you get an edited rebroadcast, chopping out innings to fit into a time frame. But the quickness of this game (1:53) made that unnecessary. It was a real joy to watch because the pace was so QUICK. It's been a long time since I've seen a Met pitcher in "the zone" the way Estes was this night. Strike after strike after strike. I don't recall him looking this good since a game at Shea in late 1998, when he came in with the Giants and shut the Mets down.

One of the best pitched games in franchise history. I always enjoy a good old fashioned 1-0 pitcher's duel rather than a 10-9 slugfest. Two young southpaws working quickly, getting it done in under 2 hours. Ex-Met Rusch pitches a gem despite being the hard luck loser, but Estes even though he wasn't successful in Flushing, pitches one of the many 1-hitters in Met history. To this day, still no no-no by a met. Maybe Pedro will do it. We'll see.

Shawn Estes for ex-Met Glendon Rusch. Estes had one of the best pitching performances in Mets history, giving up one hit and the Mets won.

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.
