Brad Lidge thinks Billy Wagner is the best there is at closing out the ninth: New York Times: Wagner is a Must-Have Free Agent; Just Ask his Successor:
"Everybody could use Billy Wagner," Lidge said. "There's not one team
that could not use a guy like Billy Wagner. He's the best there is in
baseball. He dominates guys. He played in a hitter-friendly park and
had an unbelievable year. I don't know who's going to be lucky enough
to get him, but everybody needs him."
I have a feeling that there may be a bidding war for Billy and that may not necessarily favor the Phillies. If they were really adamant about bringing him back, they would have been better off going hard after him mid-season before other teams could throw ridiculous amounts of cash at him.
Where do you think Wags will end up?
