I went to this game with my church group from NJ. The bus ride over to the stadium was fun. As they always are---when you're 15. It was another beautiful sunny, breezy Sunday afternoon at Shea with the usual mix of popcorn, beer, cigar smoke and hotdog odors wafting in the air. We sat in the loge. Koos had his stuff. Only problem was that Claude Osteen was better. Mets scattered 3 measly hits and I think I remember speedy Teddy Martinez reaching 1st on a very close play. Masterful pitching job by Osteen. You knew the Mets wouldn't win this one. Everyone wanted to leave the park early to "beat the crowd" I wanted to stay but in the end I had to abdicate to adult authority and we all kind of watched the Dodgers put together two more insurance runs in the 9th as we made our way down the escalators and out of the stadium. At least the bus ride back to Jersey was fun. We sang "99 bottles of beer on the wall". I don't think the church fathers cared for that.

Not to be the fact police but...

Teddy Martinez led off the ninth with a double to right field for his only hit of the game. The other two Met hits reached the outfield too: Felix Millan singled to center in the 4th, and Jim Fregosi singled to left in the 7th.

Martinez did ground out twice in the game, so maybe your memory had him being safe on a close play, but it looks like he was out!

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.
