I Love Jeff Conine's Attitude

Via Metsblog.com I came across this quote in the Cincinnati Enquirer by Jeff Conine:

“I can't think of a better way to go out than to do it in the playoffs in New York…I kind of made up my mind it's time to call it quits. You always want to go out on a winning note. Fortunately, I'm going into a winning situation…

“This is the third time (I have been traded) into a pennant race. The first time was a World Series victory…It would be nice to repeat that.”

That's the type of attitude I like to see/hear especially as we head into the NL East pennant race. If we play tonight, I'd like to see Conine pinch hit so we can give him a Big Apple welcome.
