This Week in Mets Quotes: deGrom gives Mets a scare, Frazier is frustrated with umps

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

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Your 2018 Mets: You hope and pray it’s just something little.

“Whenever somebody comes out of the game early, you hope and pray it’s just something little. [deGrom’s] a big part of our team. It takes energy out of you a little bit, but at the same time, we’re professionals, and we’ve got to go out there and play.” -Todd Frazier [Mets]

‘A Glimmer of Hope’ pretty much defines Mets fandom.

“That it wasn’t a result from mechanics or an actual pitch kind of gives you a glimmer of hope.” -Mickey Callaway [Mets]

What could go wrong?

“It’s all good.” -Mickey Callaway opening his press conference post-deGrom MRI [Newsday]

“They said there was nothing on the MRI so my head is pretty clear.” -Jacob deGrom [Newsday]

Frazier continued...for a while.

“I’m just starting to get frustrated with these umpires a little bit. It’s one of those things where I have to say something. … Something has to be done. The more we talk about it, the more frustrating it’s getting. I’m not making excuses. We lost fair and square. The kid pitched a hell of a game. But these umpires have got to get better, bottom line.” -Todd Frazier [Mets]

I may be mis-reading Harvey, but I think he wants to talk about his nightlife exploits in LA.

“I’m not answering any questions or having any comments about that story.” -Matt Harvey [Newsday]
