This Week in Mets Quotes: Terry Collins knows Mets have to put some thing together

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 Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Your 2017 New York Mets: We have to put some things together.

"We didn't add on or we would still be playing. We have to put some things together." -Terry Collins [MLB]

Summer has come and passed.

"It was good for us to capitalize tonight on opportunities that we didn't last night. It is always good when we are able to do that." -Dom Smith [MLB]

The innocent can never last.

"[deGrom] is very good and he works hard at what he does. He wants to be known as one of the best in the game. The only way to do that is to stay out there and pitch a lot of innings." -Terry Collins [MLB]

Wake me up when September ends.

"If you play long enough, you're going to have streaks like this. These last few games for me have been very inconsistent for me as far as my knuckleball goes. I had a great one in [Philadelphia on Aug. 30] and then the past three starts it kind of floated away from me. Tonight was a night when I had a horrible knuckleball and tried to survive some innings with some conventional pitching." -RA Dickey [MLB]

Like my father's come to pass.

"[Dickey] was leaving a couple up in the zone and it is something that he normally doesn't do. We were able to put good swings on them. The ones that stay up don't move as much as the ones that are sinking and dropping off the table." -Dom Smith [MLB]

Seven years has gone so fast.

"It is the safety squeeze and [Juan Lagares] took off early. We don't do it very much and guys weren't use to it.” -Terry Collins [MLB]

Wake me up when September ends.

"I tried to get the sinker away from lefties as they had a lot in the lineup. I also used my changeup and I thought it worked well." -Robert Gsellman [MLB]
