This Week in Mets Quotes

Using his access and reporter skills to feel the true pulse of the team, that’s his stance
"RT @KBurkhardtSNY: Mets have sent Mejia to AA Binghamton as a starter. No corresponding move yet This smells like prepping for a trade!!"  via AllenY70 twitter

"@AllanY70 totally agree" via KBurkhardtSNY’s twitter, Bobby Parnell was called up within the hour.

Hello Hello Mr. Manuel Reyes wants the little house not the castle
"That’s home for him," Manuel said, referring to the leadoff spot. "I was trying to take him out of his home, trying to take him somewhere else. He was in a little house. I was trying to get him to a castle." Via nyt

Can we convince Manuel that RF is Pagan’s home, he seems to be fixated on homes
"It’s home and he might end up there, I don’t know."  Manuel regarding if Beltran would play in Puerto Rico via nyt

Don’t worry, it happens to lots of guys
"I was unsuccessful." Dickey regarding being unable to convince Jerry to let him finish via sports.yahoo.com

Conversely, you can pay him enough that he is contractual required to maintain a dyed as well as adequately groomed moustache
"I know the core is important but during spring training if someone was watching me I would do sit ups then when they turned their back I layed down…you couldn’t pay me enough to do sit ups."  Keith Hernandez during the Tigers-Mets broadcast

Being a lifetime Mets fan allows you to see the silver lining in anything
"He’s got nice batting gloves though" Gary Cohen after Detriot pitcher Armando Galarraga swung helplessly over two changeups to start his first at bat.

I knew something was off against Detriot, Takahashi didn’t stay in the moment
"He really made some adjustments.  To watch him manage that lineup for six innings was impressive. You never got the feeling that he was going to flinch. He stayed within the moment and pitched extremely well."  Manuel regarding Takahashi shutting down the Yanks via sports.yahoo.com

Who says Jerry doesn’t believe in number crunching
"So, when they called and said, ‘He’s your guy,’ I said, ‘Well, O.K., here we go.  Now to have him as a part, if you ask me on a scale of 1-10, he’s a 9.8."  Manuel reveling his intricate calculation which is accurate to the tenth via nyt

He has a vision and I like his vision
"He has a vision. I congratulated him. He came into camp to make the team. He succeeded. Mejia has a vision. He's focused. He knows what he wants to do. This is where he wants to get. He wants to be a starter. He sees himself as that. He's focused. He sees this as something that's going to help him long term."  Omar via sports.yahoo.com

Seinfeld is not a fan of interleague play
"There’s a drive to left field," he said. "And it’s going to find the glove of ... I don’t know the name of these guys. Why is Detroit here?" Seinfeld via nyt

No joke here, I just like picturing Pagan and Beltran chatting on the telephone
Angel Pagan
speaks with Carlos Beltran frequently on the telephone. "He always tells me the good job I’m doing," Pagan said. "And I always tell him, ‘Hey, we need you here.’ Via nyt  

Good one Girardi
"I think it’s global warming," Girardi said to laughter after Sabathia shut down the Mets and beat Roy Halladay after struggling in May via sports.yahoo.com

He later added, then maybe Gina will think I’m better than Manny Acosta
"[I plan to] trust my stuff, attack the hitter and try and stop nibbling."  Parnell via nyt
