Quick note on Wagner...

No time for a "real" post, but while Wagner Wait is on, and a guy named B.J. just signed with the Blue Jays, I realized that I haven't read much about Billy Wagner's post-season record. "Baseball Crank" has though, and it don't sound pretty...
In a survey of how relief pitchers fared after monumental post-season disasters, Crank writes this:

"Billy Wagner, 2001 NLDS Game 1:
Allowing a back-breaking homer to Chipper Jones in a tie game was actually the last of Wagner's postseason failures; we'll list him as Damaged, as his record is a smaller version of Benitez' and he has kept blowing big regular-season games. Personally, I expect Lidge to follow the Benitez-Wagner career path."

Oh-oh, the "B" word!
Here's what it looks like from Baseball reference.com:

Jinkeys! Food for thought.
