All in all it was a pretty good day. The Mets shut out the Reds, the Beatles released "Paperback Writer," and I was born. Cool!

I remember this game very well! It was Rusteck's ML debut, and he threw a shutout against the heavy-hitting Reds. Being a fan of the Mets throughout their short existence, I thought: At last! A quality pitcher who is not at the end of his career! Alas, Rusteck hurt his arm a few starts later and was gone from MLB forever. Trivial note: I believe that Rusteck was a graduate of Notre Dame.

Sitting in front of the b&w tv watching the pre-game show brought to you by Benjamin Moore Paints. Interview with Gordy Coleman, calls Selma the toughest slider that he has seen all year. Rusteck throws a 6-hit gem besting Jimbo Maloney and the future looks great until he throws his arm out!

This was the first and only win, complete game, and shutout of Dick Rusteck's short major league career.

It was Rusteck's major league debut, and he allowed just four singles and one walk. The Reds never had more than one baserunner on at a time, and they never got a runner as far as second base.

Ed Bressoud had a three-run homer in the second inning and a solo homer in the eighth. John Stephenson drove in the other Mets run with a third inning single.

Rusteck pitched three more games, then was on the DL for two months. After coming back he pitched four more games in September and October, making a total of eight appearances for the year...and then his major league career was over.

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.
