According to Jon Heyman, Billy Wagner has signed a one-year deal with the Braves.
how the hell does omar minaya still have a job?
 maybe he has one of those George Costanza deals in which he doesn't actually have a front-office job, but keeps showing up
 It takes a whole lot to outrage Mets ownership these days. If Bernie Madoff couldn't shake them, Omar's got it made (no pun intended...)
It's a good thing the Mets were able to save the last two months worth of money owed to Wagner because otherwise they might not have been able to give Alex Cora a $2mn contract. Besides, do the Mets really need two first round picks anyway?
Now, the Red Sox just have to hope that the Braves don't sign anyone rated more highly than Wagner. If not, then this turns out to be a great trade because it either nets two extra picks or allows the Red Sox to sign a Type A they might otherwise have not.
Hmmm .... a former "Fireman" in a post titled "Flame On" ....
