Twitter Poll Results – Billy Wagner Reactions
This morning I asked the following Twitter Poll question:
Are you happy with the end result of how Omar Minaya handled Billy Wagner?
- Red Sox get two high draft picks (1st round pick, sandwich pick)
- Braves get their new closer; Billy Wagner
- Mets get two low level prospects; Chris Carter and Eddie Lora
Here are some of the responses.
Unhappy with the end results…
chrisbirckhead - Not at all… a poor attempt at cost savings.
nymetropolitans - “Baseball is a business, there’s no more loyalty.” Billy needs money to feed his family (of alpacas).
MetsGuide - No, but I haven’t seen Carter in action yet. I would have liked those draft pick(s) though.
DWrightGuy5 - No, I feel that the #20 and #40 would’ve been better than Carter and Lora.
tfc3rid - Ugh, Omar fouled up… Clearly a cost saving move but backfired as usual.
Happy with the end results…
antiglib - Wagner decision at time it was made was 100% correct. Remember, this is a guy who was also publicly mulling retirement.
turbot72lou - Yes, because we weren’t winng and if we offer arb. he could acceppt and we would have a closer as a setup guy = too exspenive.
AdamMarcal - End result? Don’t we have to wait and see who Boston drafts, then who they trade those draft picks for, and how those players.
msschneid - Yes, take the two players and save some money.
It looks like Mets fans are split. I would love to get some feedback from our readers, and I will add those comments to this post.
