It’s a fun part of the year if you’re doing it.
Team meetings are all about timing
Every time I have a meeting we seem to play that way so I guess we won’t have anymore meetings

Manuel on Winning
Despite where we are in the standings, the quest for a championship continues.
-Manuel via 9/10 postgame.
If we did some things situationally, we had a shot.
To recap, Marriage or Having a good start = Maturation process
To get out of that inning like he did is part of the maturation process
It’s good to see the mental toughness. That just shows the maturing process.
-Wright speaking of Parnell’s steller start versus the Cubs. via 9/4 yahoo recap.
Remember that part in Major League where the bleacher fan…
As it came off his bat, I thought, 'That's too high.' Then it kept traveling and traveling. Then it went to that part that's a little short. Once it got about halfway, I realized it wasn't going to be enough ... thankfully.
It’s called strategy; it’s what good managers do
Any ball hit into the gaps is an automatic triple for your average runner. It will be more beneficial to bunch our outfielders.
Balls down the line are doubles pretty much no matter what you do. You play it straightaway, and you might stop one in a hundred. But you can save some runs if you're bunched.
-Sullivan via 9/05 postgame.
The Cubs countered the defense alignment by hitting three balls out of the reach of the OF and into the stands.

I’m a pretty big fan but I think jail is still worse
Coakley's antics cost him dearly -- "perhaps the worse punishment for any true Mets fan.'
-Queens District Attorney Richard Brown via 1010 wins
The Mets banned Coakley (that guy that streaked during the Braves game) for life from all their facilities including KeySpan Park and Tradition Field.
However, I think he can still go to Buffalo or Bingo, so he’s got that going for him
No pressure John
I think he's pretty close to where he's going to be (in 2010.) In St. Lucie, he was 91-94 mph. I think we'll probably see that in the game on Sunday.
-Warthen on Maine via the Daily News
In other words, ‘we have to see if he’s any good’
We have to know where an individual is mentally and see whether it is productive to keep giving him an opportunity as to possibly developing or evolving into a guy who can start at this level
