Billy Wagner Buries Team

Still shocked by the New York Mets and the worst September collapse in MLB history. After all the flack Yankee fans, writers and players took from the Amazin's during the first half of 2007, it's going to be a pretty bitter pill to swallow when they turn on October baseball and don't see their team competing.

A seven game lead with seventeen games to play? Absolutely mindboggling.

Painful as it might be for Yankees fans to admit, it's pretty difficult not to feel bad for Mets fans.

So, in the spirit of camaraderie and brotherhood, the Mets closer decided to toss his coaching staff under the bus:

Billy Wagner stabs pitching coach, manager in the back:

“We’ve been throwing four innings a night - for months!” Wagner told the magazine. “Our pitching coach has no experience talking to a bullpen. He can help you mechanically, but he can’t tell you emotions. He has no idea what it feels like. And neither does Willie. They’re not a lot of help, put it that way.”
Maybe Wagner's tendency to choke up huge save opportunities had something to do with it as well... What a team player.


On the contrary, the Rockies and Padres will duke it out tomorrow night with a one-game playoff contest. Winner is in, and loser goes home.
