We did this together. We, as a team, made history tonight.
That no-hitter stuff was a long time ago; I don’t think that has anything to do with it. I’m just going through a tough time.
I mean, coming into this season I was just hoping to come back, stay healthy and help the team.
I knew that the Mets had never had a no-hitter. I never had one. This is very special. I knew this means a lot to New York.
I didn’t want to go on the DL. I want to keep pitching and competing. They decided it’s better for me to take some time off and that’s what we’re going to do.
I’m not executing my pitches. I’m not commanding my fastball, and I get behind in the count. When I try to throw strikes, I’m getting hurt. That’s not the way I pitch.
We’re not done. We’re just going to continue playing and hoping to put some wins together again.
There’s times when one play makes the whole difference, one calls makes the whole difference. And tonight it was that call.
I don’t feel my best right now, but at the same time, I’m not trying to find any excuses or anything.
