"I feel like we're better than we've played," manager Andy Green said during the season's final week. "That's probably not going to be the common opinion outside the industry. I see there's more in there, and when you see there's more in there you haven't exceeded my expectation for you. When you look around the diamond, there's something you can expect more of from each guy than you've gotten. I think that's what the job of a manager or coach is, to see what exists inside of somebody and believe in a high level of expectation and hold all of them to that level."
