METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 7, 1977 GAME:

I went to this game along with 17,000 other hardy souls. Seaver's last game as a Met at Shea before the disaster. He was brilliant. 10 strikeouts. Struck out Pete Rose 3 times, including to end the game. Only two Reds players got hits (though they managed to total 5 between them). The Mets beat up Cincy starter Pat Zachary for 4 runs, and reliever Mike Caldwell for 4 more. A few days later, Zachary was in pinstripes; Caldwell became a 22-game winner in Milwaukee. Seaver passed Sandy Koufax on the career K list that night; Buddy Harrelson was clapping in his glove out at shortstop when it was announced.

I attended this game. I had been to plenty of games prior to this one. The circumstances surrounding this game were unlike any other game I had ever attended. The rumor mill had been swirling about the impending trade of Tom Seaver. The company my brother worked for had a box on the railing to the right of the backstop screen. I occupied the the first seat unprotected by the screen. To this day, I have never sat in seats that are close to comparable. Seaver passed Koufax that night on the all time strikeout list and his fastball was popping. Sitting so close, you could feel it exploding into Stearns' mitt.

As an added side note, Lenny Randle who was rehabbing his reputation after punching out his manager in spring training (Frank Luchesi) was quite friendly and signed an autograph prior to the game.

Little did I know that Seaver was going to be packing for Cincinnati a week after this game. It was the night he passed Koufax in Ks, and it's still hard to believe the junk the Mutts got in return for him. The beginning of the dark ages at Shea.

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.
