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]
“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
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]
