This Week in Mets Quotes

Now ride the pine, it’s time to give Frenchy some ABs

“Jerry said to me, ‘I’m not putting you in the 4-hole because you’re a slugger, but because you’re a great hitter.”’ Carter via

The Mets dropped 2 of 3 but I consider this a win; there are much more important things in life

“[Logan Morrison] father Tom was able to see him play in person for the first time in the majors. The elder Morrison was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer in April and has spent much of the summer in the hospital. He was finally well enough this week to take a 29-hour train ride from his home in Louisiana to see the series.”

“Anytime [my dad is] in the stands I kick it up a little bit. He’s the reason I’m here.  And with him being sick, there might not be too many more opportunities where he can see me play.”  Morrison via


Coming from Wright, these are pretty harsh words

“It wasn’t like HoJo gave us any great words of wisdom.  We’ve just started swinging the bats better.”  Wright via


I’m going to assume that Jeff still swung

“[Duke] kept us off balance and threw his curveball for strikes.  When I faced him in the past, he’s had trouble doing that.”  Frenchy via


We need more pitchers that hang around and just win

“We had chances to really put the game away and we didn’t do it, so you have to give Sanchez some credit. He didn’t have his best stuff, but he hung around and got the win.”  Wright via


JerryBall:  It’s big when players who I don’t let play still manage to effect the outcome of the game

“That’s big. Anytime the guys that aren’t getting the opportunity to play anymore can contribute, it makes for a better team effort.”  Manuel via


Beltran/Pagan BFF

“That was a play, right there.  The hit was good, but (the hustle) was a play.”  Beltran on Pagan via


I don’t think Jerry is even trying in his interviews anymore

“We’d like to have kept [the streak] going, but we’ve got a chance to put some stuff together.”  Jerry via


Niese should use hot ice, you see it’s ice that you heat up

“I feel good, though. I feel like I’ve caught a second wind. I haven’t iced my shoulder since the All-Star break.” Niese via


AA Quote of the Week

“The steinbrenner family should build a statue to whatever morons at CBS couldn’t figure out how to make money with the most storied sports team in north american history that allowed a shipping magnate from Cleveland to buy the team for a song back in the 70s.”  Kendy Namo
