Contest: Billy Joel's Shea Stadium concert

It's Day 2 of our Billy Joel DVD/CD giveaway. This is a compilation of his two 2008 shows at Shea Stadium. I neglected to mention yesterday that PBS will air its concert special from this on Monday (March 7) at 8 p.m. on WNET (Channel 13) and then Tuesday (March 8) at 8 p.m. on WLIW (Channel 21).

To get today's prize, you must answer two questions that incorporate the Mets and Billy Joel, referencing the playlist from this collection.

I'll give this prize to the first person who e-mails me - at kdavidoff@newsday.com - with the correct answer to both of these questions:

1. In honor of "The Ballad of Billy the KId," who has the most Mets saves among all pitchers named Billy?

2. In honor of "Captain Jack," who has the most Mets wins among all pitchers named Jack? This is someone who went as "Jack," not a "John" who could be nicknamed "Jack" but wasn't. 

--UPDATE, 2:11 p.m.: We have a winner! Steve Gross from West Islip, now of Tampa, knew that Billy Wagner leads all Mets Billys with 101 saves, fourth on the all-time franchise list, while Jack Fisher leads all Jacks with 38 wins, tied for 24th (with Ed Lynch and Frank Viola) on the all-timne list. Here is the information, if you scroll down properly.
