This Week in Mets Quotes

The players react

"I don’t like to give Philadelphia fans too much credit, but they got this one right."  Wright on the U-S-A chants via espnny

"I heard the chants and they were great.  It was a pretty neat thing. It was emotional. Hopefully this brings some closure but it’s still not over."  Dickey via

"The emotions that those guys must be going through hearing that same news -- as proud and as great as the moment was being on a baseball field, you multiple by that by a million and that's probably what they're feeling at the firehouses, at the police stations."  Wright via espnny

"It’s probably a night I’ll never forget. I came inside and heard the news. There are some things bigger than the game and our jobs. You could hear the crowd chanting, 'U-S-A!' And I got chills hearing that."  Young via espnny

I don’t think anyone could disagree with this

"I think it's classy to afford the team the luxury (of adding a player to the roster) and make it so the player doesn't have to worry about leaving someone shorthanded," Bay via dailynews

I stand corrected

"Twenty-five years ago nobody left.  Nobody went to weddings.  You played because the season was six months long or five months long and you stayed.  But the rules changed and that's part of the Basic Agreement now, but they got this rule which helps you so you don't lose a player and you can keep a core roster. We adjust to it. (But) I'm sure the wives are happier."  Collins reminiscing about the good ole’ days of 1985 via dailynews

Canadian smack talk

"I'm tired. Most people in my situation would be. I'm definitely not looking for any sympathy. That's the way it is. I'll have a lot of time to recuperate tonight. I got here on time and we got a win."  Bay via

Canadian Deception

"The middle name is David.  After David Wright. So he thinks."  Bay on his newborn’s middle name via espnny 

Collins is three days from retirement

"I’ve seen it before, this guy [Frankie] needs some tension, he needs to be on the edge.  I wish he wouldn’t do that. I’m too old to watch this stuff."  Collins via

Ever the optimist, Duda continued ‘The sun rose today, so that was pretty cool"

"Obviously you want Jason back.  I would want Jason Bay out in left field; I wouldn’t want me out in left field. They told me it was for a couple of days. I said, ‘You know, two days is better than no days.’ If I never get back here, I got two days. So that was pretty cool."  Duda via espnny

And by consistent, Frankie means a pace to reach 55 games finished by the end of the season

‘"I don't think I have thrown the ball good yet," Rodriguez "I've fallen behind in the count too many times and the walks and hits are high, so that's something I have to improve in this month coming up."  Rodriguez said there's no magic bullet other than getting consistent work.’  Mike Puma via nypost

Thole is too good for his home

"[Thole] caught 300 baseball games in his life. It’s like anything else -- when you don’t have that years of a base, when things go bad, it’s hard to find home. That’s what he’s going through now. It’s a little bit harder for him, but he’s fine."  Catching instructor Jon Debus via espnny

AA Quote of the Week

"I want a drink now, not 3 weeks from now."  Packard37 on the GKR bartending charity event

If I were in charge of the Mets (Edited)

"I did not write the original post...i realize that this was a terrible post and i stand against just about everything that was in it.  I sincerely apologize for the awfulness.  The post was written by my friend (who happens to be a yankee fan) and if I could completely delete this I would but this is the best that I could figure out.  This was a bad post [insert bad post picture here].  Woo hoo! 78 words!" metman726
