Billy Wagner is scheduled to come back on Sunday. He's coming back before Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, John Maine, and so many others. Billy Wagner had Tommy John surgery last year and it wasn't even known if he would pitch at all this year. Jose Reyes was supposed to sit out for a day in San Francisco. Carlos Delgado went down in the same series. Beltran was going to sit for a few days and then return to action. And I don't even remember anything about John Maine.
But Billy Wagner proved he wanted to be back the most. He said last year that he would return. And he's returning. I'm looking forward to it because I know he wants to play baseball. Billy Wagner wants to prove he can still pitch and therefore he will play his heart out the rest of the season. At least one Met will be playing hard.
Let's Go Mets!
