Found September 21, 2012 on The Outside Corner:
The Phillies thrashed the Mets 16-1 last night, and New York manager Terry Collins had some choice words for his team in a press conference after the game. Collins answered that he was embarrassed by the team's performance in the loss, and when asked if he thinks the team quit, Collins said "you'd have to ask them", and said he wouldn't express his opinion publicly. He then compared his team's lack of heart to Juan Pierre of the Phillies, who had a five hit game, three of which didn't leave the infield thanks to his hustle and speed. Collins also acknowledged that after Philadelphia's eight run first inning, the attitude on the bench wasn't positive. He also refused to mention the most troubling thing he saw on the field during the game, and said that he spoke to the team about their effort. When asked if he thought the team was embarrassed as he was, Collins once again remained noncommital and gave out the "you'll have to ask them"...
