OK, so maybe I overreacted last night. I probably wasn’t the only one. But for anyone who doubted the talents of Billy Wagner (You know who you are…Benigno and Roberts, and the
rest of you brain-dead WFAN callers), the bullpen is lost without Wagner. Number 13 is the closest thing to a sure thing in the Mets’ ‘pen. Except for about 5 or 6 games a year, you know that the ninth inning is safe with Wagner. Even Mariano blows saves every now and then. Fortunately for the Mets, Wagner was back tonight. And he helped erase the memory of the devastating loss on Tuesday night.
