Ryan Wagner(Yes I know he is in the majors right now)

Postby mikegp » Thu Jul 22, 2004 4:29 pm

I posted this here because so far Wagner hasn't had a full season in the major leagues and with the way he has been pitching recently that is where he is headed back to. I have to ask, what is the deal with this guy? It doesn't seem like he's pitching as well as he should be. I'm in a keeper league and I have him on my team and i'm hoping that next year he'll become the closer for the reds. However, at this point i'm not sure if he can handle it. However, it could be something as simple as putting a closer in a nonclosing situation. What do you guys think of him and his chances for next year.

Is Kaz Tadano one of those players :-o Is he always smiling for some reason, like it isn't punishment that he's in a confined area with fellow ballplayers?

As for Wagner....... he's been pitching OK, but he was supposed to be MLB ready and he hasn't had the greatest of control in the minors (9 BB's in 16 IP) or the majors (25 BB's in 40 IP the past 2 years).

Once he gets some experience in August/September for the Reds, I think he'll be ready to be the closer in 2005. He should get a good amount of K's but with the amount of walks he throws, he could be one of those choke-masters when it really counts like Armando Benitez and Jose Mesa. But since fantasy only counts regular season, and Benitez and Mesa have been pretty good, why not expect a solid season out of him ;-D
