Anyone else impressed with how composed, focused and deliberate these two guys were during their respective interviews last night? While all hell was breaking loose around them and people were pouring champagne and beer on them, their tone and attitude remained calm and collected.

When Willie was reminded that it's his job to keep the players sharp and focused, he answered with such an absolute "Yeah" that it left no question as to who's been driving this bus all year. And I think Willie stating that keeping them focused is the easy part was a very classy compliment to pay his chargees.

I think their display of calm and cool last night was a deliberately placed metaphor; not only for how the Mets have carried themselves all season, but also for how they are expected to carry themselves the rest of the way.

I really can't think of another Manager that would have done as tremendous a job as Willie has.

Thanks for a great Summer, Willie. And thanks in advance for an amazin' Autumn as well.
