This Week in Mets Quotes

Canadian Smacktalk

"You see this?" Hudgens referring to video of Bay hitting HRs as a Red Sox

"Yeah, I feel like that’s what I’m doing." Bay

"No. You’re not." Hudgens via

Dickey says F SSS

"I think it’s coincidence. Sometimes you match up better against certain type of hitters and maybe this team has those kinds of hitters for me." Dickey on his dominance of the Marlins via

Thank you sir, may I have another

"That was my first opportunity this year, I’m happy, and I’ll wait for more." Acosta via

I’m glad TC is being honest with us

"To be honest, he’s got something to prove. You can’t get designated as many times as he’s been designated in the last couple of years and not have something to prove. He’s taken this opportunity to show us he can hit." TC via

We’re rooting for you Who

"There’s still 25 games left in the season. I’ve been playing for 12 so I still got a long way to go before I can exhale coming into spring training." Evans via

No love for first positive WPA

"It was exciting, glad to get that one out of the way. Three games, got two of the big ones out of the way-first strikeout and first save." Stinson via

Say what you want about Harris but the guy doesn’t lack confidence

"I wasn’t looking forward to facing him today, knowing those numbers. But, you know, it’s the most comfortable 0 for 13 that I’ve ever had." Harris via

Perhaps Batista or Dickey can help TC learn how to be a bit more descriptive

"Jose got on, Lucas put one where nobody was standing and we got a chance to score." TC via

Mmm, now that’s a sentence

"It’s not hyperbole to say that my knuckleball was putrid." Dickey via

So much grission

"They didn’t have any bite to them. I don’t have an explanation to why. I had to use some other stuff in the arsenal tonight. I was able to throw a larger number of conventional pitches because I felt fine. I needed to survive. I’m glad I have enough arm strength to do that." Dickey via

Words that can be applied to all facets of life

"When you get on a little hot streak, you have to ride out as long as you can because you know right around the corner, there’s an 0 for 10, 0 for 15 waiting for you," Wright via


"The 26th guy?" Evans referring to his position via dailynews

Tempted to find quotes of players saying that they just want to help the team in anyway they can

"Anyone who says they want to be on the bench is a liar, but you have to do what you can." Evans via dailynews

Yeah, that does sound awful

"Pinch-hitting is tough, but if you do well, that might be your thing. Getting one at-bat, then going up there and getting a fastball up the middle and just popping it up. And then you have to think about that pitch all night." Evans via dailynews

Please come back normal

"I'm expecting to be just normal. That's what we're looking for. That's why it is so important for me right now to get in some games and be able to test my arm, and the recovery." Santana via dailynews
Gotta love September baseball

"It was a lot of nerves going on. I was just trying to stay focused and stay calm and execute pitches. Obviously my nerves took a little over and I left a couple of balls up, and obviously they're going to get hit pretty hard. ... It kind of messed with my mechanics a little bit. I was rushing a little bit. I was a little off-balance." Schwinden via espn

No, the issue has been more the 4.41 FIP

"[Izzy’s] been a lot more physically durable than we anticipated. When he threw the ball as well as he did in spring training, the discussion was, 'There's no way he's going to make the season.' We just didn't think his arm was going to hold up. ... And that has never been an issue. His arm has never been an issue." TC via espn

Get better Jay

"[Horwitz’s] obviously is in a lot of pain. His leg was not in the right spot -- his ankle -- from where it normally should be. They put it back in place. And he's got a broken bone. So he's obviously not feeling too well. Obviously Jay is the hardest-working guy in the world, and the most-devoted Mets fan, too. Obviously he wanted to be here. He hasn't missed a game in 20 years -- over 20 years." Davis via espn
