Funny that, with all that happened this month, I'm more disappointed that Maine did not pitch the no-hitter than anything else. There's only one year left until we move to that awful stadium, we will probably never get the chance to have one at Shea. It was always my great fear that when it does happen, I won't be there.

In any event, this was a nice day. The weather was great, we got up big early, we had the no-no going until late and we all generally believed that the horror had ended just in time.

Funny how it goes, no?

I wasn't able to see this game on TV so I settled for radio. As I listened, I kept thinking that if the division title was going to get away, at least John Maine would give the Mets their first no-hitter as some kind of compensation (minimal as it might have been.) But when Paul Hoover got that infield single in the 8th, that hope was lost, too.

Still, the victory did lift the team into a first place tie with the Phillies, who lost to the Nationals later that day. But it was just a temporary reprieve. We all know what happened the next day.

Oh, well, thanks for the great effort, John. Fate can be so cruel!

I wish that John Maine pitched the no-no this game. Though this was long before my time, I remember reading a library book about the Mets and I learned Tom Seaver came closer to pitching a no-no more than once, including the imperfect game. That is what I thought about while hearing about the game. (I missed it because I was with my dad and he doesn't have cable which is why I try to boycott his house at times like this.)

Probably the best pitched game I ever attended. Thought for sure Maine was going to get a no- hitter, no one could touch him. 14 strikeouts and only a slow 30 foot roller down the 3rd base line could beat him. Went from a great high to the ultimate low point the next day. The Mets have never been the same.

I attended this game, I sat out in the left field bleacher seats. This game was electric, a ton of offense and bad blood, this erupted at 3rd base with Olivo and Reyes. Because of the fight, the game was delayed and Olivo was ejected. His replacement got the only hit off Maine. This excitement made me want to see the next game and final day of the season, I did get those tickets to see Glavine blow it in the first and it has been painful ever since! Let's Go Mets!

Last game I ever went to at Shea. 13 ks, almost a no-hitter and a bench-clearing brawl. I'd trade it all for a win the next game.

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.
