Jack Fisher of the Mets pitched a complete game win but only had two plate appearances! This isn't a trick; the Mets beat Larry Dierker in the bottom of the ninth when Ron Hunt, batting for eighth place batter Danny Napoleon, singled to end the game with the Mets having a total of 26 batters.

Fat Jack finished the year at 11-14 with a decent ERA of 3.68 besting 20 year old hardballer Larry Dierker.

Dierker had a perfect game going into the ninth. You can look it up.

This was the best pitched game I ever attended. Dierker was perfect starting the ninth. Bressoud led off with a sinking liner to left which could have been safely played as a single, but with a perfect game on the line Left Fielder Lee Maye tried for a diving catch and the ball got past him for an extra base. A wild pitch and a soft liner that touched the top of the glove of a leaping infielder and just dropped behind him got the winning run home.

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.
