“You look at the young players that are here, you can grow with that. You can grow with the pitching staff that’s coming. You’ve got to like what you’re looking at. … There’s a lot of positives you can take out of (2012). … Yeah, we’ve got to get it done. As we’ve seen, if we stay the course and don’t panic and have some patience, this will come together.”

— Terry Collins on the future of the Mets (Quote from Bergen Record)
