This was the first shutout by a Met righthander ever - in 1962, lefty Al Jackson had all four Met shutouts. This was the first of four shutouts in 1963 by Willey. Grover Powell had the only other one by a Met all season.

This was also the first shutout by a Met pitcher that wasn't part of a doubleheader. All four of Al Jackson's shutouts in 1962 had been during the first games of doubleheaders - and the Mets lost the second game each time.

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!
