Ed Coleman of WFAN is reporting that Billy Wagner is rehabbing ahead of schedule and could return to the ball club this coming season. Right now they're targeting August for a potential return to the team.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not counting on Wagner at all next season. But what if he was able to come back in August? Can you imagine the strength of our bullpen?
All of sudden you have a 6 inning game and then bring in Putz, Wagner & K-Rod for the 7th, 8th & 9th. That's unreal. You basically have 3 closers at your disposal.
I know I'm getting ahead of myself and honestly I'll be shocked if we see Billy Wagner on the mound at Citi Field at any point next season, but isn't the offseason the time to dream?
