Opening Day: All I Really Need to Know I Learned from the New York Mets

Never abandon a good plan out of panic.

It ain't over 'till it's over.

Disappointment is proportionate to potential.

Never run your mouth the night before it's your turn to pitch.

When it's over, it's over.


You can't "stay pat and stay on top," but "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

If you CAN handle the heat, you'll be great in the kitchen.

If they're gonna beat you, make 'em earn it--no intentional walks.

Numbers are far less important than personalities.

You can't buy a pennant, but you can darned sure trade one away.

Use caution when doing yard work.

Loyalty always means more in hindsight.

The truth hurts sometimes, but lies always do.

Enthusiasm is contagious. So is stupidity.

The most important thing is knowing what's actually important.

If you can beat no one else, at least beat the Cubs.

If at first you don't succeed, moving to third won't help.
