The most remarkable Mookie Wilson quotes that will activate your desire to change
I have no decision-making role at all in my job description.
I would have liked an explanation as to why I was moved from first base coach to the ambassadorship, but none was ever given.
Why did I get married in a ballpark? My wife wanted a big diamond
I feel that I deserve to hear just some words to justify the actions of an organization that I have honored and promoted every day of my nearly 30-year existence in it.
It was a strange season coaching under that new [Alderson] regime.
I felt like I was watching the deterioration of the Mets organization. They seemed to have no identity. My concern was that the character of the players they were looking for superseded the talent they brought to the table. Character on a team is important, but you've got to have the horses to win.
