MetsBlog QuickQ&A: Dillon Gee talks success, 2014 and leadership

MetsBlog: Why do you feel you were so successful during the second half of last year?


Dillon Gee: “It’s hard to put a finger on that. I didn’t change a whole lot from the beginning of the season. The pitches were pretty much the same. I think I just attacked more. My mentality was different. I think that helped make me pitch better. I just got more aggressive in the strike zone threw more quality strikes.”


MetsBlog: “What would like to improve on in 2014?”


Dillon Gee: “The start, obviously. My goal this year is to be consistent. I want to be the same guy in October as I was in April. My whole plan this off-season was to try and find the best way I could be ready for March 31.”


MetsBlog: Does feel the need to be a mentor or advisor to the team’s younger pitchers, like Zack Wheeler and Noah Syndergaard?


Dillon Gee: “I just try to lead by example. I tell them to get a process, get a routine that’s good for you. Everybody is different. And, just learn from watching other people, like David, whose preparation makes him so good, and just be the same guy day in and day out.”

Gee is a solid pitcher!...had a real string strong last year...one more good piece in a potentially great rotation

Fix your typos and grammatical errors you lazy slobs!!!  You asked three questions and two of them sound like a 2nd grader.

I love how under the in case you missed it portion it says the Mets payroll is $98 million when it's really $89 million.  This blog know no bounds when trying to sugarcoat how bad the situation really is with this franchise.

HOLD UP...the "Incase You Missed It" post just prior to this says the Mets payroll is $98 million...that is false...it is $89 million which INCLUDES buyouts of Johan Santana ($4.9 million) and Jason Bay (2.7 million) and promotions....also they are tied for 23rd with the cubs on payroll.....wow...Metsblog really trying to sugarcoat this....

@ericccb  Isn't that a bad thing? Shouldn't someone being paid to write care about the quality of that writing?
