Doc v. Ryan. Can't beat it. Preview of the great series that was to come.

This was Doc vs. Ryan, but my memory of this game occurred after it was over. I saw Ray Knight and Nancy Lopez leaving from the bullpen area. That day's Post had on the back page the headline "Whatta Knight!" after Knight's dramatic home run from the previous game. Anyway, Ray and his Mrs. were both nice enough to exchange pleasantries with me and sign my newspaper.

I was at this game with my dad. I remember being so excited after the game the night before. It was Nolan Ryan vs. Dwight Gooden and I remember Hernandez ground ball single up the middle to score Dykstra from 2nd in the first inning. I then remember a long fly ball off the wall in right for a 2B by Dykstra to put the Mets up to stay, 2-1. Ah, the good ol' days. I miss those days, when baseball was played the way it ought to be. I also remember the rumors circulating around Gooden with drugs.

We had seats behind the Mets dugout and I remember seeing Kevin Mitchell looking out into the stands. I asked him what he was up to, and he said, "I'm looking for my boys."

I had drawn a picture of Darryl Strawberry that I brought to the game in hopes of getting him to autograph it. I handed it to Mitchell and he took it to the clubhouse, then returned and said he couldn't find him. At the same time, I felt embarrassed asking Mitchell for his autograph!

Oh well...the memories.

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.
