This was Casey Stengel's final win as a major league manager. The game had the bizarre feature of Phillies players colliding with each other on pop-ups three times in the eighth and ninth innings. A total of seven Philadelphia guys, two of whom got hurt and had to leave, were involved in the collisions. John Stephenson got an RBI single in the 10th to win it for the Mets, but Stengel would not see victory again. He suffered his own injury in a fall one night later and was forced into retirement immediately.

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!
