METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 31, 1982 GAME:

The Mets lose their fifteenth in a row as Nolan Ryan two-hits them and strikes out nine. At this point the Mets are 50-80 and have gone 16-50 since June 20.

Ryan had a no-hitter for 7 innings until Ron Hodges singled with no one out in the eighth after Hubie Brooks reached on an error. The other Met hit was by Bob Bailor leading off the ninth.

I was at this game as a kid. Nolan Ryan dominated with a 2-hitter K'ing Mookie 3 times. Mets looked hopeless in a forgettable season. Not many fans at this game but they sure gave it to Kingman and George Foster all night!

I was at this game with the other seemingly couple hundred fans even with Nolan Ryan pitching. Nolie threw a 2-hitter I believe. Mets were horrible during these times. Fans were booing George Foster all game with Dave Kingman a close second. I remember the US Open across the parking lot had small matches going on during this game and saw a little of Wilander vs. Lendl which was more memorable than this Met team.

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.
