wordsmith Yankee

My friend Irwyn made the following clever observation ("Mo"=Mariano Rivera, of course):

I know this is not your dream Series scenario, but how about a tip of the cap to Mo, the wordsmith, who, when asked by the silly post-game interviewer what was going through his head when he was called in to pitch two innings of relief, said: "Get six outs." Most succinct job summary since Eastwood's Man With No Name going out to face the gunmen with: "Get three coffins ready." Bon Mo, who knew?
