This Week in Mets Quotes

No beer and bad calls make Jose go something something

"I went a little crazy there."  Reyes via espnny

"Yeah, I’ve always said he’s not very tough.  And I’m sticking to that. He’s not very tough."  Wright via espnny

"I’m not going to make him mad.  I’ll promise you that."  Turner via espnny

"Everybody’s making fun of me." Reyes via espnny

More importantly, what is Dickey’s opinion on Jose’s outburst

 "Justified."  Dickey via espnny

But does he have an edge

"One of the things I like, and it may came back to bite us—(Reyes’) passion to play, his energy. I think it’s contagious. He’s an excitable guy, and I think that’s why fans love him.  He plays the game with fun but with a great passion, and I think the rest of the guys bought into it tonight."  Collins via

The story has a happy ending

"[Hudson] talked to me [Reyes] during the game. He said he looked at the replay and he missed it out there.  I said, 'It's good you let me know. I think I overreacted too.' So I apologized because of that. I went crazy a little bit. But that's in the past."  Reyes via espnny

Sandy showing how last year’s visit should have been spun

"I’ve visited military units all over the world over the last 10 years or so, and there’s no doubt in my mind that the services today are far more professional, far more motivated and capable then they were in my day.  And that probably has a lot to do with the fact that it’s all volunteer, which is why it was important for us to have an all-volunteer group go visit."  Alderson via NYT

Sandy continues to show his media savvy

"I was with a triple amputee today, talking about his desire to be back with his buddies and making a contribution.  It was quite uplifting. He was a Phillies fan, but other than that."   Alderson via NYT

Winning really is contagious

"Ike Davis played the other day and was as sick as a dog during the game. He threw up before the game."  Collins via

"I didn’t feel great, that’s probably a big part of it. I didn’t do too much.  While I was in the bullpen I said, ‘I’m just going to throw strikes. I don’t feel great. We’re going to grind through this and we’re going to get through it."  Pelfrey who threw up but swallowed it while on the mound via

I think this is Canadian smack talk

"I think at this juncture it’s kind of a moot point, isn’t it?  We knew that in January or December, when Cliff Lee signed there. And they were tough before he got there. I think we can keep playing this [hype] game every time we play the Phillies. They're just another team, albeit a very good one. We’re playing better now. Hopefully that has a little momentum on our side."  Bay via espnny

Pudge added, ‘I’m not going to lie, I’m the most humble person you’ll ever meet’

"I'm not going to lie to you. That was a missile that I threw to second base."  Pudge on throwing out Reyes via espnny

Bay teaching the fundamentals

"It’s like Outfield 101. You don’t want ever to get the glove between the ball and your face."  Bay via espnny

Izzy is a gamer

"It's as good as it's going to get.  I'm an old man. It's worn out. I'll keep going until it pops." Isringhausen via Daily News

Wright once again side stepping putting the team on his shoulders

"We’ll go as far as our starting pitching carries us.  I think it all starts and ends with starting pitching."  Wright via

SiteBot FacePalm of the Week

"If it was based on three starts, it would be silly…but it’s not.  Those stats are pulled from this season (and it’s five starts this season – nearly a sixth of a full season, right?)"  bgrosnick

AA Quote of the Week

"Did Seaver ever dress up as Darth Vader and oder a turkey sandwich?  Case closed."  ScottfromPeekskill
