Billy Wagner
Ahhh yes…..the plight of the Relief Pitcher for the Baseball Hall of Fame.   Entering his year of eligibility at the same year as Trevor Hoffman, Billy Wagner’s 400 plus Saves and seven All Star appearances could easily be forgotten by the Baseball Writers of America. Hands down, Wagner was one of the top closers of his era, but we have seen people with similar resumes be dismissed by those who decide Cooperstown. Wagner’s freshman vote tally should be an interesting one.
