O’s “closed out” by Billy Wagner

December 02, 2009 | Drew Forrester

Billy Wagner will regret this day.

Perhaps he forgot that Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine aren’t in Atlanta anymore.

These aren’t our father’s Atlanta Braves anymore.

Wagner signed on with Atlanta today for $7 million.

He could have come to Baltimore and been the closer for an Orioles team that is absolutely on the uptick.

He didn’t.

Sometime in mid-July of 2010, he’ll look at the standings and say to himself, “What was I thinking?”

Just wait and see for yourself.
