So now I am hearing that Billy Wagner could be back in the middle of August.
If this is the case, we might actually have a crowded bullpen. Wouldn’t that be nice?
I would not look too deep into yet though. Wagner only wants to close.
It could be a chance for the Mets to get a starting pitcher. The Mets could trade him before the trade deadline should their rotation fall apart.
The St. Louis Cardinals are still looking for a closer. They are converting one of their starters for that role. That could be their temporary fix.
I would not worry about it. Who knows! It’s only half a season. Maybe Wagner will consider…nah! He wants to be a closer. He won’t have it any other way.
