This Week in Mets Quotes

Barajas for GM
"Someone said, 'You know we haven't won back-to-back [road] games since July,' and Rod was like, 'Y'all suck.'"  Frenchy swaying my vote via nydailynews

Please, we all know Victorino loves Dickey
"I'm not going to take anything away from a guy like R.A. Dickey or anybody like that, but when you look on paper, a guy like that is not going to stand out." Victorino on Dickey via nydailynews

That Hawaiian the Phillies have, he’s not too smart
“The Japanese lefty they have, he's done good things.”  Victorino on Takahashi via nydailynews

Add Brian Schneider to the list of people who are proud of Pelfrey
"He's totally changed the type of pitcher he is.  He's not only throwing fastballs. He's throwing that split a lot and mixing in his off-speed pitches. You have to give him credit. He's matured and grown up and he's pitching totally different and catching a lot of people off-guard. Good for him."  Schneider on Pelfrey via nydailynews

Obviously this means start him in the minors
"[The Red Sox] didn't give us much to pick from.  But our scouts liked Carter, they thought he had a major league bat." Minaya via nydailynews

Mound Presence = Having good pitches
“(Two years ago) You saw a good curveball that could possibly become a dominant pitch. But then [Niese] went back and he developed a cutter and a changeup, and all of a sudden he had a mound presence. The ceiling for me is now a lot higher than I first thought."  Manuel on Niese via nydailynews

I’m pretty sure Bay took this from my last company meeting
"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting the same result.  So you feel like you need to be proactive."  Bay on his struggles via nydailynews

I wouldn’t say unheralded more like constantly getting ripped on
"He is having a great year, can you say quietly? At least unheralded."  Bay on wright via nydailynews

Keep in mind this was after Takahashi went 7 giving up 1 ER
“Asked Saturday afternoon if Takahashi lacked the stuff to succeed as a starter, Manuel said, "That's a good question. I don't know that, I really don't. I think he has the pitching savvy, but as far as stuff, that could be an issue.”  Via nydailynews
