Mets catcher Wilson Ramos joined Gary Apple as a guest on Mets Hot Stove on Thursday evening.
The 32-year-old catcher discussed his first season in Queens, a year in which he batted .288 with 14 home runs, and also spoke to how much of an adjustment it was for him to learn things on the fly during spring training about an entirely new pitching staff.
"It was really hard in the beginning. During spring training, I tried to (get to) know those guys better, and better, but it's a little bit hard because it's spring training and it's not enough time to get to know everybody," Ramos told Apple. "I'm not catching a complete game. During spring training, I just got like two innings, two innings, and at least seven innings like two times during spring training, but it's hard to know everybody in that short time.
"If you see the numbers after the All-Star break, it was a lot better. It was better communication. We stayed more on the same page, so I think next year will be a lot better because I know those guys more and we've got better communication."
