Come off it guys, I know it's a forum and you can post whatever you want, but start your own thread to discuss this. I'm just asking, because it gets tiring to see multiple threads turn into this bickering that goes no where after post 2.


Amen to that - you can keep going back and forth, but in the end only time will tell.

However I do think the Jays overpaid for Ryan, and the Mets overpaid for Wagner. Maybe I'm a bit biased, after watching Foulke implode in '05

No, you're not. Wagner will be almost 39 by the end of his contract. Show me a closer who pitches well for that long.

Trevor Hoffman. Mariano doesn't look like dropping off soon either. Would Smoltz still be dominant if he'd stayed in that role too? My money's on yes, and he's got nearly 3000 innings under his belt.

He (Wagner) will have to slow down to adjust, but I think he'll be fine.

Now, I can give you a list twenty times as long of closers who have fizzled out long before that age. Just in the past ten years.

True, but Hofman doesn't really count as much. There's much more stress on Wagner being a flamethrower. It's like dog years...every two years a guy like Hoffman throws is like one year for a hard thrower, right??? ;-D ;-D ;-D

Unless you're God and have a crystal ball that can predict the future, something I apparently missed in this whole debate, how are you so sure that Wagner "fizzles" out? . :-°

Nobody calls Wagner a fizzle! Except...except for that one guy that did years ago. But no one calls Wagner a fizzle and gets away with it! Well that's not true...the other guy who did it ran away after he said it. But after today, only half of the guys who have called Wagner a fizzle will have gotten away with it!

Rich, I think you should call it a night. I'm still trying to decipher your posts.

Gotta love Family Guy references.
