We all knew that former closer for , Billy Wagner, was put on the trading block due to the fact that he is ready to play, yet the Mets didn’t expect such a quick recovery.
Today, the Mets shipped Wagner to the Boston Red Sox for two players to be named later, while both sides came to a conclusion with just minutes to spare before the deadline to complete the deal. This deal comes to no surprise, as the Mets and Red Sox were rumored to be negotiating.
In other news, Mets’ ace Johan Santana was the latest Met to become victim to injury. It appears that Santana’s season is over, after news reports that were released the other day explained that Santana’s arm had been giving him problems as of late and that it just got to be too much.
Santana is expected to make a full recovery and be back on the field for the start of Spring Training in 2010. This isn’t really a horrible thing for the Mets considering they were already so injured that it became a difficulty putting 9 guys on the field.
The structure of this team in 2010 should be interesting.
