This was a nationally televised prime time game on NBC.

This was a big game in Mets history because it was a network game and the nation got a first glimpse at the great Tom Seaver, who pitched a complete game victory.

The biggest highlight was Eddie Kranepool's three-run homer off Bob Bolin in the bottom of the fourth that put the Mets up to stay. In his earlier at bat Krane had almost put one out but was eventually retired. In the fourth he hit a bomb and Shea errupted.

The next morning the back page of the New York Daily News said in a huge headline, "Kranepool HRs Giants, 5-3." I cut it out and still have it to this day, one of my great memories of the early Mets years.

My first time watching Seaver in person. There was an excitement at Shea that night that I had never before felt: Tom Terrific had already made an impact.

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.
