It is a wonderful combination -- the greatest team I ever had. I can't pick out individuals because they are all giants in baseball. It is by all odds the greatest team in the American League. I couldn't pass a higher compliment. I can afford to single out one, Kid Gleason, because he is a manager. He has kept pace with the team and that means something.

They have been setting the pace most of the time and no other team deserves being in front more than they.
