This was the first Mets game I ever attended. I was 8 years old. I'd love to see a box score to confirm my 37-year old memories, but I recall Bob Shaw started and took a tumble at some point in the game that dirtied his uniform. I think I recall Rob Gardner pitching in relief, and Ed Kranepool hitting a home run.

William Ortenberg, if you are still out there....Bob Shaw did indeed start this game for the Mets. Rob Gardner relieved him in the seventh with the Mets down 3-2 and gave up two walks and a single, plus a batter reached on an error by Ed Bressoud. Kranepool's homer came in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and a runner on and made the score 8-4.

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!
