You're talking about two players who met every expectation. In some ways, they were even better than I had thought they would be. Mike hit a lot better than he had in past. He's becoming a better and better hitter. My only regret with Omar was, if he's this good at 38, what was he like at 28? He was tremendous.Ned Colletti
