Last quote by Terry Collins

I'm swinging at pitches that are in the zone. I've been swinging at bad pitches for some time. And for the past few days, the hitting coaches have been telling me that my pitch selection is better, which is why I'm feeling better.feedback

It's nice to see them out there. I don't know when I'll get them back, or if I'll get them back.feedback

They looked free and easy. They were free and easy. I thought both of them were nice and loose and free. For the first day of throwing, I thought it was a good sign.feedback

We just have not played well in day games or on Sundays. I can't defend it. We just got to get after it today and hope we play as well as we did the last two games.feedback

Jul 16 2017

That's our goal – let's get to 90 wins and see where we're at. I don't think by any stretch of the imagination that this is over yet.feedback

Jul 15 2017

I thought he had a tremendous game. As you just saw, he's got all the skills. Beat out a ground ball, threw a runner out at the plate, took another ball and turned it into a double. Hopefully that tells you his legs are feeling much better, and hopefully it continues. Hey, if we're going to get in it, he's got to lead the way.feedback

Jul 15 2017

There may be some guys in there who are worried about July 31, but it's out of their control. They need to worry about what they're doing on the field. That's the only way we're ever going to approach it. What's going to happen at that deadline, nobody knows. We may get some guys. We may lose some guys. But for now, they're wearing Mets uniforms, and they need to play like Mets.feedback

Jul 15 2017

We talked about it before the break. We said when we come back, starting today, there's a sense of urgency. No question about it.feedback

Jul 15 2017

Those No. 1 guys, when you need them, they rise up. Jake's on a roll right now. The team is comfortable when he pitches, and I think that leads to more offense.feedback

Jul 09 2017

We're not hitting, we're not pitching. When you don't pitch the game looks rugged. When you don't hit, they look even worse.feedback

Jul 09 2017

We haven't been able to stop the bleeding.feedback

Jul 09 2017

We weren't able to establish roles in the bullpen.feedback

I cannot afford to have him blow out that hammy again and he's out for two months.feedback

Jul 03 2017

They know these are important. They know they're big games.feedback

Jul 02 2017

We got our work cut out for us, but there's no reason we can't be optimistic. If we can put together a second half like some of these teams did in the first half, we'll be fine. If not, it's going to be tough to catch back up.feedback

Jul 02 2017

He kept us right there. He had one bad inning, but if we get a couple of runs, we're right back in the game.feedback

Jul 01 2017

I'll tell you, if we get him hot, we're going to have a good finish.feedback

Jul 01 2017

These are the games where you got to say to yourself, look, we're not out of it. We got a good team here. Let's put a couple of hits on the board and try to put one over the fence.feedback

Jun 30 2017

In the second half of the season a lot of things can happen.feedback

Jun 29 2017

He has had an absolutely tremendous career. I'm sure he'll land on his feet someplace. He's a pretty valuable guy to have.feedback

Jun 29 2017

It stabilizes your bullpen because you don't have to find a fifth starter or a spot starter.feedback

Jun 28 2017

It's just frustrating at times to continue to see them go down.feedback

Jun 27 2017

Once in a while, if you hear the same thing the boss is saying, but from somebody else that you really respect, because he's one of your peers, it helps a lot.feedback

Jun 25 2017

I hope this is what we're going to see from now on.feedback

Jun 25 2017

This is exactly what we wanted to see from him.feedback

Jun 24 2017

Right now, everybody needs to look in the mirror and do their jobs.feedback

Jun 23 2017

In my opinion, that gives us the best chance to win the game.feedback

Jun 23 2017

It hasn't happened to date. It's not going to happen now. The thing is, I know he can play there, and that gives us our best shot.feedback

Jun 23 2017

Every time we seem like we get something going, everything spins in the wrong direction. We start playing good, and Neil Walker gets hurt. The next thing you know, Asdrubal Cabrera gets hurt. Now we've got Zack Wheeler down, and he'd been pitching good.feedback

Jun 23 2017

Not with the way we're playing, no.feedback

Jun 23 2017

That's a stunning number. There were a lot of nights I've been in Dodger Stadium and the ball doesn't fly, and it flew out of here like nothing.feedback

Jun 21 2017

Not every time they take the mound they feel great. It's impossible. It's the middle of June. You're not going to feel good right now.feedback

Jun 21 2017

You've got to be able to realize that you've got to be able to pull together and make sure everybody is on the same page. These kinds of things happen. We'll rally.feedback

Jun 21 2017

It's tough for me to sit here, night after night, and look up and see we're not just making pitches.feedback

Jun 20 2017

When you knock Clayton Kershaw out, you better take advantage of it. And we couldn't stop them. Certainly those add-on runs at the end of the game came back to hurt us.feedback

Jun 18 2017

Sandy Koufax told me a long time ago, you got to have a guy who's going to be 12 games over .500 in your starting rotation to have a chance to compete. And right now, Jake is leading the pack to be that guy. Guys like that stop losing streaks.feedback

Jun 18 2017

There's only so many gut punches you can take before you're down on your knees. You can only take so many blows before you start to feel sorry for yourself. But if you do that, you're not going to have much of a chance. We'll bounce back and we'll start playing good.feedback

Jun 18 2017

If you continue to win games, you can get back in the race. Today was a huge win for us, but we got to play again tomorrow against another good team.feedback

Jun 17 2017

We're a team that's got a number of guys that are possible free agents – that can't be in your thought process. The thought process has to be, What can I do today to help us win the game today?' If you feel sorry for yourself here, you're going to get your butt handed to you.feedback

Jun 16 2017

How many (injuries) can we possibly continue to have to play through? You know what the answer is? As many as pop up. That's how many you've got to play through.feedback

Jun 16 2017

Those great pitchers, they get the lead and they can chew you up.feedback

Jun 16 2017

Anytime you go in and have surgery, there are nerves that are damaged, and it takes time for those nerves to regenerate. And I think that's all part of it.feedback

Jun 16 2017

We talked to our doctors, and they're saying they've got to strengthen his back muscles up, and that will be two to three weeks. So we don't know how long after that until he's ready to pitch again. The doctors are confident he'll recover, and they're the only ones who have had histories of these things, so they'd know a lot better than me. But I always think a guy like Matt Harvey, who works as hard as he does, will be able to at least try again, that's for sure.feedback

Jun 15 2017

We've made up some ground this week and that I'm happy about. Let's just not lose any.feedback

Jun 14 2017

We were overusing our bullpen. And believe me, guys, I'm the one accountable for using them too much. But we were not getting deep into games with our starting pitching.feedback

Jun 14 2017

Our pitching should be a lot more dominant than it has been at this point. We're starting to see it now, getting back to where we expected it to be.feedback

Jun 13 2017

Well, it feels better, but he still feels it, so we're going to have him take it easy today, and hopefully it starts to disperse by tomorrow. We got to be careful with this. These things can get carried away.feedback

Jun 13 2017

It is a little bit frustrating. He had a great game last night. And not just the home runs. He made two great plays defensively. This guy's a good player. But you know what? It behooves him to make sure this thumb gets better. We need to get him better.feedback

Jun 13 2017

We got six lefties, and possibly seven lefties, in the next 11 days, and it didn't make any sense for him to not be available except to pinch-hit left-handed. For this guy to be the complete player that he is, he needs to be able to hit right-handed.feedback

Jun 11 2017

He kept them off balance. It's nice to see him out there. You can tell he's got to get some strength back but he pitched very well.feedback

Jun 11 2017

It's starting to get where it needs to be.feedback

Jun 11 2017

It's a tremendous lift for the club to have those two guys come back and really, really give us a shot in the arm with the pitching and save the bullpen.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - International Consumer Electronics Show

He's one of the best players in baseball. He's hard to replace.''. Right now, as you can imagine, we'll be a little careful with Ces. We're going to work him back in there.feedback

Jun 09 2017

We'll flip-flop and move guys around and try to get everybody some playing time.feedback

Jun 09 2017

Last year, when the ball was hit to Asdrubal Cabrera, you were out. I think there are slumps defensively, just as there are offensively. This guy has the same approach he's had forever. They don't miss a day doing their defensive drills. We're just not making the defensive plays.feedback

Jun 07 2017

Big league teams, you can't give them extra outs. They capitalized on them, and with Wacha pitching like he did tonight -- a pretty dominant performance -- you let him have some extra runs, they're going to beat you.feedback

Jun 07 2017

When Lucas Duda gets hot, he's one of those guys that carries the club. He can be a little streaky, but when he's hot, he's dangerous.feedback

Jun 06 2017

If we don't get any innings out of our starting pitching, we'll wear out our bullpen. Maybe the extra day will help these guys be a little sharper and get deeper in the game.feedback

Jun 06 2017

We haven't etched in stone anything because we really don't know until we see Steven and Seth pitch. So far when we've brought them back after four days, solely on regular rest, it hasn't been quite as good.feedback

Jun 06 2017

These guys have all pitched better with an extra day.feedback

Jun 05 2017

This game's about pitching. We've had some injuries, there's no question about it. But we came into this with a rotation we figured was pretty dominant, and we certainly did not have any indication in spring training that these guys would struggle like they have struggled with inconsistent outings. One time they're really good, next time they're not. I'm not sure what to expect; I haven't seen 'em. I trust the minor league guys and the scouts that we've gotten the reports from, but when those bright lights come on, it's a whole different game.feedback

Jun 04 2017

Never gives in. Has the ability to make a pitch when he really, really has to.feedback

Jun 04 2017

I'm shocked by it and disappointed by it.feedback

Jun 04 2017

He didn't want to interrupt that, so he let it finish.feedback

Jun 03 2017

He's pitched absolutely great. I don't know what happened tonight.feedback

Jun 03 2017

I saw it in the second inning. He threw one pitch and I asked Dan, I hope that was a slider,' and Dan said, I think it was a fastball,' and it was 90.feedback

Jun 01 2017

I certainly don't know if it was the reason, but everybody was up in arms when I took him out after 118 pitches the other night in Pittsburgh. Sometimes after a game like that, your arm doesn't bounce back that fast. There's a chance that he just didn't have enough rest.feedback

Jun 01 2017

We're playing better because we're pitching better. And that starts with our starting rotation. There's no question that's the key. If you pitch, you got a chance to win every night.feedback

May 31 2017

Location, location, location. He goes strike one on everybody. And when you can do that and that's part of your arsenal, you're going to get outs, and once you're ahead in the count, you're going to get easier outs.feedback

May 30 2017

I talked to the guys at Triple-A today about him, and they said he has a knack to make people swing and miss. Who knows why? But it's working. It's always worked for him. He's a perfect example of a guy who hasn't changed what he used to get here.feedback

May 29 2017

Some decisions work and some don't. Right now I'm not looking at yesterday or the day before. I'm looking at today and tomorrow.feedback

May 29 2017

I try to tell him each and every time, in every conversation, I look around the stadium and there's still a lot of Matt Harvey jerseys being worn.' So he's still a guy. You've got to move on and get past it all, and take it one step at a time.feedback

May 29 2017

We're not asking him to save the season. We just said, Look, Matt, go out there and pitch better than you did the last time and continue to take steps forward.feedback

May 26 2017

Our offense has provided a good punch for us, especially with the situation with our pitching. We've been able to add on some runs in games where that kind of saves us.feedback

May 25 2017

I get in trouble because I try to be as honest as I can with you guys and give you an honest look at things. And then if it doesn't happen, we look like an idiot when we're not, because there's no guarantees.feedback

May 25 2017

He'll be in there when he's in there. So, we're going to try to stay away from trying to predict anything except the fact that, Hey, look, there's a process involved of getting these injured players back on the field and it changes every day.feedback

May 25 2017

This kid has really been struggling. At times you want him to leave with a good feeling, and he gave us six good innings.feedback

May 24 2017

Everybody's concerned about workloads and pitch counts. In certain situations you've got to protect those starting pitchers, and we're certainly the team that's exposed more than anything. With the injuries that have caused problems with our rotation, hey, we've got to be very careful with the ones that we still have here, because if they have issues, we don't have a lot behind them.feedback

May 22 2017

Right now, Tom's going to go back out. We think that's our best option.feedback

May 22 2017

We've got to stay healthy. We've preached it and preached it and preached it, and now we've got to act on it.feedback

May 21 2017

The first thought is, I'd almost try to walk this guy [rather] than pitch to him.feedback

May 21 2017

Those are the kind of situations where you look back at the time when Buck Showalter walked Bonds with the bases loaded rather than pitch to him. It was the same feeling -- 'I might want to walk, pitch around this guy, [rather] than give him a chance to hit.' But fortunately [Reed] made some good pitches.feedback

May 21 2017

He has gotten to the point where he's one of the guys we're relying on.feedback

May 21 2017

Before the game, I felt like I was 50 again. Now I'm back to being 67.feedback

May 21 2017

Right now he's one of our horses, and we've got to ride it to get this on the right track. I was thinking I'd almost rather walk this guy than give him a pitch to hit. I considered it, absolutely.feedback

May 20 2017

We saw it last year in the beginning, but I thought he got a little home run happy and kind of changed his swing. Now, he's not. He's seeing the ball very good right now. It's added up to a great start.feedback

May 20 2017

He's returned to the swing he had when he first got to the major leagues. A little flatter swing, not so much trying to hit the ball in the air. He's just trying to hit the ball hard. He's back to where he's hit some of his homers to left field, which is what made him so successful his first year.feedback

May 19 2017

That's what we're looking to do, get our starting pitchers to really carry us. Jake did a tremendous job tonight. He reached back when he needed to and made big pitches. That's what we've come to expect from those guys.feedback

May 19 2017

He's getting pitches out over the plate and he's driving them.feedback

May 17 2017

We're anxious to see it in the game today.feedback

May 17 2017

When things aren't going good, nothing goes good. When you face great pitchers and you got them on the ropes, you better get them. If you let them off, they end up putting you away, and that's kinda what happened.feedback

May 17 2017

There are so many other things that are more frustrating, to be honest.feedback

May 16 2017

We don't have a lot of options.feedback

May 16 2017

It's been hard. But it is what it is, and you've got to manage it anyway. And if you overexpose them like two innings, that's when you're going to run into those problems. We've had to do that.feedback

May 16 2017

We've certainly got to take a good hard look at where he's going to fit. He's got a good arm, and we've seen him pitch well and pitch big here.feedback

May 15 2017

If he's not going to be able to play for a few days, we've got to get a guy in here. We're not sitting in a situation where we can play too short.feedback

May 15 2017

You get up in the morning around here, and you don't know what you're going to face.feedback

May 15 2017

I'm tired. I'm not overly tired. But you get up in the morning because you're energized, and because you have to be to manage in this city.feedback

May 15 2017

It's too easy to say, Woe is me and let's worry about next year. This is New York. Tomorrow is the next biggest day on the schedule.feedback

May 15 2017

People were telling me, You're only gonna be here until they get to be good, and they'll get somebody else. I'm thrilled to still be here. This is a great place to manage. It's really fun. A tremendous fan base with great passion for the team and the game. I don't take any offense if fans don't like a move. If they all worked, I'd be the best manager in the history of the game. They don't always work. When you can't do that anymore, then you've got to hand it over to the next guy.feedback

May 14 2017

From my [standpoint] it turned out a lot better than what I had heard, what I was thinking it might be. I have not heard a time frame, but I know according to [Mets trainer] Ray [Ramirez] the surgery was a little different than the other guys. It actually turned out to be -- no surgery is good -- but better than it could have been.feedback

May 14 2017

It's been shocking to me. We should be pitching better.feedback

May 14 2017

I'm pretty concerned. We're not seeing how good we know he can be. We're not seeing that good sink or command of his secondary pitches.feedback

May 13 2017

It's hard. You feel for him when you see a guy who set the bar so high for what he expected from himself.feedback

May 12 2017

This guy is one of our top pitchers. We've got to get six innings out of him. I thought after the fifth inning, he was really starting to get it down. I'm sure he's upset about the sixth.feedback

May 12 2017

Fifth inning was his best inning of the night. We were hoping we could get through the bottom of the order so we could worry about the matchups later on. But couldn't do it.feedback

May 12 2017

You feel for him. It's like anything, when you see a guy who has set the bar so high for what you expect out of him ... the game is hard. You're coming off surgery and it's a process to get back.feedback

May 12 2017

Second inning, third inning, he really struggled. Fourth inning and fifth inning, he threw the ball great.feedback

May 12 2017

But he limited the damage. I hope he takes that.feedback

May 12 2017

We could certainly have taken him out at that time. I thought the way he was throwing the ball, we could have gotten another inning out of him. Then it really would have been a positive.feedback

May 12 2017

They're pretty painful injuries, but this is a big one.feedback

May 09 2017

I think everybody deserves a second chance. What Matt said to me, he's going to get after it like he did in the past. I told him he needs to make baseball number one. When he did that, he was on top of the world, you know? This guy was the best pitcher in the game. He made that the priority. And when he makes that the priority again, he'll be back.feedback

May 09 2017

I'm not qualified to answer that.feedback

May 09 2017

I don't think he thinks he has to do it by himself anymore.feedback

May 09 2017

He needs to take it as pretty special. Nobody likes to be embarrassed. And that's kind of where he's at right now, more than anything. So we're going to fix that. We're going to help fix that.feedback

May 09 2017

He said he threw the ball to both sides of the plate. He said he's got a feel for his off-speed pitches, so we'll find out when we get him out there.feedback

May 09 2017

You make a mistake. You stand up, be accountable and move on. And you know what? People forget about it. We have a policy here. We had to do something. Sandy did it. I respect it. I thought it was the right thing to do. I know it's dramatic, but I think any team in baseball would have probably reacted very similarly. And it wasn't just Matt Harvey. Anybody in that room that misses a day and nobody knows about it, we've got to do the same thing.feedback

May 09 2017

I told Matt he needs to make baseball No. 1. When he did that before, he was on top of the world. This guy was the best pitcher in the game when he made that his priority. And when he makes it the priority again, he'll be back. You've got to be able to put the blinders on and direct yourself down that path and say, I'm not going to let any of that other stuff get in the way right now.feedback

May 09 2017

I wish I could tell you how many times somebody has said to me, Hey, I'm going to do this.' The answer I give them is, Don't tell me -- show me.' That speaks more than anything else.feedback

May 08 2017

We have gotten where we have gotten the last two years with all of the things that have happened here because we have a tremendous clubhouse. If you're talking about the pranks guys play on each other, that's part of the gig here, that's part of professional – that's part of a clubhouse atmosphere. People outside don't like it, we really don't care. It's about our guys relaxing and having some fun.feedback

May 07 2017

Pretty tough situation to put him in, but it's what we had to do. There were rules here that weren't adhered to and we took a stance.feedback

May 07 2017

We are going to keep it in house, the way it's supposed to be. We hope to put it behind us and move forward. There were some moves made last night because we felt this might occur.feedback

May 07 2017

Everybody's different, but we got a job to do here and this guy has a chance to be one of the best in the game. And it's got to become his No. 1 priority right now.feedback

May 07 2017

There's things with this job that certainly are internal that the public can't see and how hard it is, and this one's a tough one. We hope to put it behind us and move forward. To be honest, there were some moves made last night because we felt this might occur, that we had to protect our pitching staff a little bit.feedback

May 05 2017

I have too much respect for the people in Atlanta to say much.feedback

May 05 2017

He's upbeat because he thinks he's got his swing back. He said, When I come back, I'm going to continue where I left off.feedback

May 05 2017

It's pretty frustrating for us, because we know what this guy's potential is. We've seen it. It seems like just as he starts to get it going, something happens. It's not one of those three- or four-day things; it's something that takes him out of the lineup for two weeks, for three weeks. Hopefully, this doesn't take that long. It sounds like it's not a big deal, but we know from the past it is a big deal. So there's no time frame right now.feedback

May 04 2017

I don't know if what they're saying really coincides with how they really feel. If anybody thinks from what we said in spring training that is not our first priority, to make sure these guys are O.K., they're crazy. This is all we've harped on.feedback

May 01 2017

Somebody has got to pick up the slack. I'm not asking any starting pitcher to become Noah Syndergaard. I'm asking him to be himself and go pitch a good game. ... In the case of offense without Cespedes in the middle of your lineup, you're asking (Jay) Bruce, (Neil) Walker and (Curtis Granderson) to drive some runs in.feedback

May 01 2017

You're allowed 24 hours to be upset, then you've got to move forward.feedback

Apr 28 2017

It's gotta start right now.feedback

Apr 27 2017

This certainly is something we could not foresee.feedback

Apr 25 2017

To get both of those guys back is going to be big. All of a sudden you're looking at one or two guys closer to having your regular lineup out there.feedback

Apr 24 2017

There will be some things that he's gonna have to do before the game. Because if you remember last year, we ran through a similar situation. And first game that he played after taking a few days off he ended up getting hurt, we'll make sure that doesn't happen.feedback

Apr 24 2017

If Tuesday comes and he's not much better, I think we'll have to take a look at that.feedback

Apr 22 2017

I got a good team, and they're only good when they're playing. We've been through it before. It's frustrating to know that we're better than what's going on right now.feedback

Apr 22 2017 - International Consumer Electronics Show

We can afford to lose Ces for this series, as big as it is, as opposed to losing him for the next three and a half or four weeks. If he strains that hamstring even more, we don't know how long he'll be out. I can afford to lose you for a day, maybe two, but I'm not losing you for three or four weeks.feedback

Apr 20 2017

If David Wright could throw the ball across the infield, he could play today. It's about getting that arm back, and how long that's going to take, no one knows.feedback

Apr 19 2017

But we're gonna add a nice piece tomorrow. Pretty nice piece.feedback

Apr 19 2017

We've played a lot of long games. With all these young starters, especially in this cold weather – three of them coming off surgeries – we're trying to protect them a little bit early. So therefore we've had to ask our bullpen to step up a little bit more than we maybe normally would this time of year, but we knew that going in. That was explained in spring training to everybody: 'Hey, this is what you're going to face.' I think for the most part they've done a good job.feedback

Apr 17 2017

You go with who you've got. We've played very well, and we've gotten the job done with the guys we have down there.feedback

Apr 17 2017

This is a good baseball team. We have issues like everybody else, but we're trying to mesh a pitching staff that we've got to be careful of and a bullpen that we've got to be careful of. We're going to be O.K.feedback

Apr 17 2017

We could've ran Jake back out there, but if something happens during the summertime and he runs out of gas or something, we can't look back on a game on April 15 when he threw 115 pitches.feedback

Apr 15 2017

We've made a commitment to take care of these guys and make sure we don't overdo it. It's easy to second-guess.feedback

Apr 15 2017

I've got the F.B.I. out looking for the real Jose Reyes right now. He's being held somewhere.feedback

Apr 15 2017

It's just what we're facing when you have a night like last night.feedback

Apr 14 2017

I'm a development kind of guy. That's what my background is. But now I'm a winning kind of guy. Those three guys have huge track records going for them. Well do the best we can and try to keep him sharp.feedback

Apr 14 2017

The one thing he has done is show us that he can handle the role off the bench. That's been a big factor.feedback

Apr 14 2017

Those other guys have huge track records going for them.feedback

Apr 14 2017

This is the perfect world. He's dangerous off the bench.feedback

Apr 14 2017

It's hard because I'm a development kind of guy. That's where my background is. But right now, I'm a winning kind of a guy.feedback

Apr 11 2017

Don't think for one second this guy's not going to have a huge year. This guy is dynamite.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I've got the FBI out looking for the real Jose Reyes.feedback

Apr 10 2017

Wins in April are important and this is one we grabbed.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I know it's in there. That tells you what kind of stuff he's got. Even on nights when he's off, he gets you deep in the game.feedback

Apr 10 2017

We live with the long ball, and nights where it's cold and windy, it's tough to do that.feedback

Apr 10 2017

We're going to hit. You combine that with pitching I still think is going to be dominant, I think we'll be just fine.feedback

Apr 08 2017

You break this guy down pitch for pitch, he's got as quality of stuff as anyone on the staff.feedback

Apr 08 2017

In about that seventh inning you can only be chilled so many times. Finally it starts to get into those hands and the knees and all the joints that are in that static starting position. All of a sudden they start to get sore after a while.feedback

Apr 07 2017

What I saw was a guy who was very frustrated with the way things went last year. He had a bad year, and big-league star players don't like to be embarrassed. I think he was somewhat embarrassed by what happened, so he came into camp bound and determined to prove he's the same guy.feedback

Apr 07 2017

Certainly, he'll (be) amped up. Emotionally, I'm sure he'll be nervous.feedback

Apr 07 2017

He put a smile on his face finally.feedback

Apr 06 2017

You're going to look hopefully in the middle of the summer and he's going to be back to where he was. Now, is he going to be throwing 98 again? I don't know. I don't have a crystal ball. But I think Matt Harvey can pitch as good as anybody when he's at 93 to 95, and he showed it tonight.feedback

Apr 03 2017

We know how important it is to keep our pitchers healthy. Dan and I had been contemplating giving Noah the extra day this week, and this settles it. We have to let that blister heal up, and we're going to push him back a day.feedback

Apr 03 2017

I think it's the right decision. We've got to stay healthy. We've preached it and preached it and preached it, and now we've got to act on it.feedback

Apr 03 2017

When runners were in scoring position, he upped his game, and that's what the great ones do. You watch them and they can coast along and coast along, and all of a sudden they get under pressure and their stuff gets just a little bit better. That's what I saw out of him today.feedback

Apr 03 2017

We lost Seth Lugo today for a period of time. That's a very common thing these days. They'll dry it out in the next couple of days, and he'll be ready.feedback

Apr 03 2017

He's going to miss some time with his elbow. We've got to make sure we keep these five guys healthy.feedback

Mar 26 2017

He does keep himself in great shape, but the wear and tear of playing center field is going to be tough on his legs at times.feedback

Mar 20 2017

This kid's not afraid of anything in any situation. He knows what he can do and he goes out and does it.feedback

Mar 16 2017

The biggest worry, after two years, his command. Is he going to be able to bounce back? So far, he's shown that he's back. That's why I'm so happy about the way he threw.feedback

Mar 15 2017

I'm worried about command. If his command is good, he can pitch.feedback

Mar 14 2017

The other guys are 18. He's not. I think if there's anybody who needs to make a fast jump, it'd be somebody in his category. When you talk to him about his experiences, it's about, Hey, look, you pick your game up when you play against better competition.' We're hoping that helps him get out of the gate. I understand all the hoopla of who he is and what he's done. He's handled himself tremendously in the clubhouse. The guys have taken to him. He wants to be just part of the guys.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I'm going to get him over here and get him some games when we need players. I talked to everybody involved and they're all for it, so we'll do that. He's not going to play a lot, but right now we need players because some guys are tired.feedback

Mar 10 2017

After I saw what happened last year I'm not on anything. I know we're going to need 10 starters before the season's over, and a plot full of relievers.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I don't think he's going to make our team.feedback

Mar 06 2017

I think he's great for our organization and great for our fans. He's a pretty famous guy, and it will be fun to get him out there.feedback

Mar 03 2017

Yeah, especially with what's happened the last couple of years with our pitching, some of the big injuries we've had – and especially him. We had already planned to bring these guys along slow and I didn't want to rush them, and I think he'd have to be rushed to go pitch in the W.B.C. I know it's an honor to pitch for your country, I understand all that stuff. But this guy's at the beginning of a very, very long and successful career, and I thought he did the right thing.feedback

Feb 27 2017

I salute him for what he's trying to do. It's not going to be easy.feedback

Feb 27 2017

He's a special person. He's a tremendous athlete. He's got a huge name in the sports world. And he's in our organization trying to be a baseball player. I know he's a tremendous competitor, and I know he's a winner and that's going to mean a lot in that big clubhouse full of young kids over there.feedback

Dec 06 2016

He's a star in Florida – he should be. Our players, they're athletes, too. They're fans, too. They would probably like to know how to run a quarterback sneak one day.feedback

Dec 06 2016

We can handle anybody with a name on his back in our camp. If they decide to send him to camp, we'll get him better.feedback

Dec 06 2016

His personality, he's won, this guy has won wherever he's been. That's why I'm surprised when I see guys that walk out on a sports field someplace, they win. They know how to win games and that make-up is important to have.feedback

Dec 06 2016

I really thought for sure he was going to end up in Washington. I really did. We dodged a bullet.feedback

Oct 06 2016

They were written off so many times this summer and yet they kept fighting back. ... You've got to have special people and special character to play in this town and in this environment, and that's in that room.feedback

Oct 06 2016

We're disappointed, but we'll be able to get healthy, and we'll be back.feedback

Oct 06 2016

We probably need to do a little better job of working the count.feedback

Oct 05 2016

He's one of the game's great big-game pitchers.feedback

Oct 05 2016

And that's why I'm so proud of these guys, because this isn't a lineup that we came into spring training and said, Boy, this is a good-looking lineup.feedback

Oct 04 2016

Good major league players, when it comes crunch time, they turn it on. So I'm not really sure that momentum going in means a whole lot. Both of us have had to play good at the end – we did.feedback

Oct 04 2016

He's not afraid. He wants to take charge. His stuff speaks for itself. I think he's grown as a pitcher. I think he trusts his stuff a lot more now.feedback

Sep 26 2016

He epitomizes what the game's about. Our game is bigger than a lot of things. It will always go on. We'll remember Jose. You've got to play the game in his honor. He would want to be out there.feedback

Sep 25 2016

When the first pitch left his hand, the first thought is, Oh, wow, this is something special. This was not only one of the greatest pitchers in the modern game but one of the finest young men you'd ever meet, who played the game with passion and fun and enjoyed being out there.feedback

Sep 25 2016

But we'll get through it, because we have to. Everybody that's ever played the game knows it has to go on.feedback

Aug 30 2016

There's a lot of concern. He wants to wait one more day, which I totally get. The more rest, the better he's going to feel. So let's just see how he is tomorrow.feedback

Aug 30 2016

He kind of thinks he's a lot better today and that's why we think tomorrow we'll know a lot more.feedback

Aug 02 2016

We got ourselves where we wanted to be. We just couldn't finish it off.feedback

Aug 02 2016

He made a good pitch. It's one of those things where they hit it where nobody was standing. But we'll regroup.feedback

Aug 02 2016

He's going to get some playing time as we wait for Cabby to get better.feedback

Jun 03 2016

He has not shown any signs of discomfort. I think it's very possible you will see him in Miami. It would be nice to have him in that park.feedback

Mar 05 2016

She fought, fought and fought. She came to work as long as she could. She loved her job and loved the Mets. I have so much admiration for the way she conducted herself the last several years.feedback
