Quote: It's Tough, Frustrating and Disappointing

…from what i can gather, David Wright and Jose Reyes appeared to be the most depressed and in-shock players following yesterday’s loss to the Marlins

…i heard reyes just stood at his locker, back to reporters, not moving much for quite a while, while people waited to speak with him…wright looked like some one had died, while talking to reporters with a blank stare in his eyes

Reyes, when finally speaking to reporters after the game, said:

“I mean, it’s tough – it’s tougher now because of what happened last season.  This season we’re going to go home early again and that’s not easy, because in spring training we had a good feeling about this team.  This is not easy.  It’s going to be a tough off-season for us.”

Wright, talking to reporters following the game, said:

“I’m disappointed, frustrated, you know, it’s a failed feeling.  It’s something that when it hits you it hits you hard…We failed.  We failed as a team.  There is no pointing fingers, no excuses, we, as a unit, didn’t get the job done…

“We need to get better.  We need to get better individually, as a team and all 25 guys need to really look at themselves in the mirror and do whatever they can and whatever is possible to be ready in spring training…

“It’s frustrating as a player.  The fans are obviously frustrated.  We went out there, we didn’t get the job done, we played with heart, we played with passion and we just were not good when we needed to be good.”

i know these two dropped the ball in some key spots down the stretch, but they were fairly consistent and productive all season long…to suggest either of these two players need to be traded is ridiculous…if anything, they need to be given more responsibility…

…the time has come to turn the page…

…turn the page from Carlos Delgado, Orlando Hernandez, Luis Castillo, Pedro Martinez, Damion Easley, Marlon Anderson, and others, and make this the team of David Wright, Jose Reyes and Johan Santana, with Mike Pelfrey, Carlos Beltran and John Maine standing quietly right behind them
