METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 9, 1966 GAME:

Feat Fan
August 10, 2004
The Pirates (51-33) won their third consecutive game with a 6-3 victory over the New York Mets at Forbes Field. The San Francisco Giants (54-32) had a two-game lead over the Pirates in the National League.

Pirates pitcher Woody Fryman had his scoreless streak of more than three games snapped but raised his record to 8-3.

Roberto Clemente went 1 for 4 to extend his hitting streak to five games. He was batting .327 (108 of 330) and had at least one hit in 20 of his past 21 games.

Clemente was one of my favorite players of all time and in some respect underated. He would have topped 400 home runs had he played in a normal ball park.

Rookie Fryman was awesome as a young lefty. At the time he appeared to be on his way to a ROY award and 15 win season. As it turned out, he did go 12-12 but the rookie hurler of the year was Don Sutton. Oh, fyi, Tommy Helms started at 3b for the Redlegs, hit .284 and was awarded top rookie. Cleon Jones had to finish second or third in the voting, one would guess.

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.
