METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 23, 1966 GAME:

Bob P
July 13, 2004
In his second-to-last appearance as a Met, Dennis Ribant faces Jim Maloney and comes out on the short end. Maloney strikes out thirteen as the Reds shellack the Mets. 7-0.

Ribant finished the 1966 season with an 11-9 record for a team that went 66-95. His ERA was 3.20, almost half a run better than the league average that year.

In December 1966 he was traded to the Pirates along with Gary Kolb in exchange for Don Bosch and Don Cardwell. Ribant won only eleven more games in his career after the trade and pitched his final major league game a week after his 28th birthday in September 1969.

Example One
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.

Thank you!
