My first ever game at Shea! An eternally memorable day, even if the Mets did get clobbered!

Braves scored five in first off Ribant...Johnny Lewis made an over the wall catch in right field off Joe Torre(?) to prevent further damage...then- unknown Nolan Ryan made his major league debut in middle relief...I just missed catching a foul ball off the bat of Henry Aaron...ballpark looked gigantic to a very happy 7-year-old.

One of the longest and most extraordinary careers began when a 19-year-old fireballer stood on a major league mound for the first time. Nolan Ryan struck out Pat Jarvis for his first career strikeout and he went on to leave batters wetting their pants for another 26 seasons.

He struck out 5,714 batters, threw seven no- hitters and won 324 games. He also pitched in seven presidential administrations -- Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton -- before retiring at age 46 in 1993.

Of course, the METS felt that a washed up Jim Fregosi would better fit their needs!

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.
