Wow, I guess we had this guy all wrong!
Jerry on Reyes showing him up:
“I told him the next time you do it I’m going to get my blade out and cut you – right out there on the field.”
Hilarious! Maybe we have a manager who will yell and scream, throw people against walls and maybe even stab someone!
Better start running out those ground balls to second fellas.
As for Jerry – you shouldn’t have let Jose play last night. If you’re worried about “losing him” then he shouldn’t be on the team at all.
So far I’m loving this guy:
“Once you step into an authoritative position, you’ve got to be an authority. That’s the bottom line, and that has to be accepted. I’m not here to make friends or for people to like me.”
“I really believe that our team plays good for five, six innings, then all of a sudden, where’s the focus and intensity?”
“I don’t care how much you squiggle and squirm.”
and is this one real?
“Last night, Reyes. She acted up. I brought her home with me. She had a day off.”
>Omar, as we used to say in Queens, this is “a bite.” I have “bit” the idea from mostlymets.com who posted this first and I totally cop.

>Jose, really? You show up the brand new manager in the top of the first? Have a seat.
One of the things I mentioned yesterday is the need for 'the Mets way.' I'd rather they lose with honor than win with knuckleheads.
Jerry needs to show there's a new sheriff in town. Have a seat Jose, maybe you can play Friday night. We wouldn't want to aggrivate that hamstring of yours.
