This Week in Mets Quotes: After great pain, a formal feeling comes

Lots of interesting, funny, idiotic, and insightful things were said by the Mets—and about them—recently. Here are some of our favorites.

MLB: New York Mets at Arizona Diamondbacks Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

After great pain, a formal feeling comes –

“We don’t play too good. It’s not just one thing. There’s a lot of stuff happening right now. It’s going to get better. We’re not going to stay the whole season playing like this.” –Jose Reyes [New York Times]

The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs –

"Overall the last three or four starts have been terrible." –Matt Harvey [NJ]

The stiff Heart questions ‘was it He, that bore,’

“I am always going to have high expectations. That’s not a question at all, but I do realize it’s a long season. I’ve made seven starts, it’s still May we have a long way to go. There’s a lot of work to be done. I am pretty close to where I want to be." –Matt Harvey, owner of a 5.56 ERA [NJ]

And ‘Yesterday, or Centuries before’?

"We will probably give [Asdrubal Cabrera] a day off tomorrow. Let him get some treatment on it." –Terry Collins, Cabrera went on the DL two days later [ESPN]

The Feet, mechanical, go round –

“Injuries are unfortunate. You can’t help that. But we’ve got who we got here, and we’ve got to do a better job. That’s all there is to it.” –Jacob deGrom [New York Times]

A Wooden way

“I keep saying, ‘It’s one pitch, it’s one pitch,’ but it’s time to start making pitches in those situations. I’m frustrated. Just leaving one ball over the middle, and it’s getting out of the ballpark every game, and it’s time to do something about it.” –Jacob deGrom

Of Ground, or Air, or Ought –

“A slider right down the middle of the plate. That’s what I get for falling behind 3-0.” –Addison Reed [New York Times]

Regardless grown,

“It’s frustrating, but that’s baseball. That stuff is going to happen. I’ve gone through a lot worse times than this.” –Addison Reed [New York Times]

A Quartz contentment, like a stone –

“We have a clubhouse full of veterans, and they have all been through a game like this. They have all been through a series like this before, and you have got to rise out of the ashes and get back on the horse.” –Terry Collins [New York Times]

This is the Hour of Lead –

"Right now, somebody has [angered] the baseball gods because every move we make, it turns out to be the wrong one." –Terry Collins [MLB]

Remembered, if outlived,

“We're scuffling right now. But I read in the papers today, there's people who think the Cubs are done. We know they're not. That's why I say, if we go win seven of the next 10, all of the sudden we're OK. The issue is if you're on a losing streak and you're not playing well and you're getting knocked around pretty good, the sky is falling. And it's not." –Terry Collins [MLB]

As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow –

"When things aren't going good, nothing goes good." –Terry Collins [MLB]

First – Chill – then Stupor – then the letting go –

"I'm not going to put my head between my legs and feel sorry for myself. That doesn't [fly] here." –Terry Collins [MLB]
