This Week in Mets Quotes

He later added Wow. This place is great. When can we move in? You gotta try this pole. I'm gonna get my stuff. Hey. We should stay here. Tonight. Sleep here. You know, to try it out.

“I hope I can bring a lot of hits and energy.  This team really has a good chance for the playoffs. This stadium’s amazing.  I’m excited.” Chris Carter via nyt.

Surprising, I thought Manuel was going to end his sentence with eukonkanto

Being Jose Reyes = bunting over runners

“Regardless of where he hits, he still has to get back to being Jose Reyes.”  Manuel via nyt.


Barajas is a straight shooter with upper management written all over him

Pelfrey too

“You make a pitch like that, the guy’s supposed to hit it.” Pelfrey regarding his HR he gave up to Bernadina via nyt.


Sorry, Jose but Pelfrey and Barajas had something else to say

“The Mets have been playing much better lately, and let’s just see what happens.  Sparky Anderson always used to say to me, ‘Forty to 50 games, you can’t make any judgment before you play 40 to 50 games.’ That is true on the business side of the game.”  Selig on the Mets attendance decrease via nyt.


“We are confident as we continue to play better, the weather gets warmer and school ends that we will draw more fans and end the year fine.” Dave Howard, the Mets’ executive vice president for business operations, on the Mets attendance decrease via nyt.

Classic SBNation Post of the Week

Breaking: Trey Wingo Now Speaking Entirely in Understatement

“Bristol- According to confirmed sources close to the situation, ESPN's NFL Live host Trey Wingo is now using understatement almost universally, including in his private life… …In December and January, when the Patriots wrapped up their undefeated regular season, Wingo was unable to refer to the season as "great" or "record-breaking" using instead "pretty good" and variations on "this Tom Brady guy, he may be good someday"… An official at East Bristol Elementary School confirmed to Royals Review that Wingo's children were initially confused by their father's increasingly cold way of speaking to them…Last week little Anne came home with straight A's. Wingo's response was, 'well, these are, umm, solid numbers." –Will McDonald of the Royals Review
