Terry’s post game comments after the Mets win over Pirates

After tonight’s 6-0 win over the Pirates, Terry Collins talked to reporters and had the following to say about:

David Wright, who had two hits which gave him 1420 as a Met, the most in franchise history:

“It’s remarkable. It’s a testament to what a really good player he is. It’s a testament to his work ethic. He’s never satisfied and always wants to get better. Tonight I had him sign a ball for me. I said I have the one from when you broke the RBI and I got your hit one. I said I want to be here when you get your home run one. He said based on that it will be awhile. I disagree with that. He’ll break that one too, soon.”

Is David Wright what a captain of a team is:

“Yes he is…The reason why he can play 155-156 is because he takes care of himself…If I’m a talented young player, I would say to myself what do I need to do to be good in this league, I’m following him around.”

Jeremy Hefner, who allowed three hits with seven strikeouts in seven innings:

“Everyone in this room who saw his last start saw his emotions and saw that he was upset. He had something to prove tonight, that he can pitch here. I believe he showed everybody that he belongs here. I was very happy for him.”
