This Week in Mets Quotes: Báez wants to play with Lindor, Drury feels good man

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 Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Your 2021 New York Mets: It’s Been a really, really fun team.

“I feel like a broken record but it’s been a really, really fun team to be a part of.” -Michael Conforto [MLB]

It was.

“I mean, [Conforto] couldn’t have thrown that ball any better. That was the play of the game, really.” -Brian Snitker [MLB]

Brandon Drury reaction to hitting a game winning home run like I would react to making a good BLT.

“I’m feeling pretty good.” -Brandon Drury [MLB]

‘Make it so’ from a pure fun standpoint.

“If I go to the free agency, I would like to play with Francisco Lindor. I loved playing with him in the World (Baseball) Classic. It is the only option I would take to play second base if it is to play with him, otherwise I stay playing at shortstop.” -Javier Baez [SNY]

The emptiest of feelings

Disappointed people

Clinging onto bottles

And when it comes it’s so so disappointing

“I’m frustrated I let these guys down. You’re playing the Braves, obviously they’re right behind you in the hunt for the division here, so it’s frustrating. It’s embarrassing.” -Jared Eickoff [New York Post]

Buying a TBD jersey for my three-year-old son.

“Two TBDs in a row. We put some guys in, we win one and we just lost one.” -Luis Rojas [New York Post]

Exactly how the Mets feel about a rookie soft tosser.

“It’s funny ‘cause when you see a guy like Rich Hill, it looks like you should be able to hit him. But that’s what he does. He’s a good pitcher and he keeps guys off balance and he makes big pitches when he has to.” -Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo [ESPN]

We really don’t acknowledge how weird/awful life would be if us Normals could just be traded by our employers.

“It was a crazy couple days. It’s kind of a whirlwind.” -Rich Hill [ESPN]

“Today was a great win and I was happy that I was able to contribute.” -Rich Hill [ESPN]

Tylor Megill has been a godsend for this team.

“This guy’s here, and he’s here to stay. He’s put us in position to win a lot of games already.” -Luis Rojas [MLB]

“We have been facing pretty good pitching, and the guy today was really good. I don’t care what kind of offense you’ve got — pitching’s the name of the game, we always talk about that — and their guy was really tough today, for sure.” -Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo [ESPN]

“For a moment, I didn’t realize what was going on just because I was blacked out from getting a hit but once I heard it, it was pretty cool, and something I’ll remember forever.” -Tylor Megill [ESPN]

“Leaving camp, there’s no chance I thought Tylor Megill would be doing at this point what he’s doing for us. It’s been very surprising. I’ve always been a fan personally, but to see what he’s doing right now, I keep saying it: It’s more than we expected. This kid has been a blessing for us.” -Tylor Megill [ESPN]

I missed the context but whatever makes Pete happy.

“The horse was in the dugout and I hit two homers. We’ll see, but I think it’s working so far.” -Pete Alonso [New York Post]

“Am I the only one that is embarrassed by the fact that the Mets have a stuffed animal in their dugout? What are they, toddlers?” -Robert Van Orden

AA Quote of the Week

It’s a game where grown men hit a ball and run around bases for 3 hours based on arbitrary rules made up 150 years ago. You are, or at least should be, the only one embarrassed by the presence of a stuffed animal…” -PriceIsAlwaysWright
