    Wagner to have MRI on Monday

    Speaking with reporters after today’s win against the Reds, Jerry Manuel said Billy Wagner was experiencing cramping in his shoulder, which began while Wagner was warming up in the bullpen.

    Wagner, who will have a precautionary MRI on Monday, told reporters his shoulder has been bothering him for the last two weeks, but is not worried about his condition.



    Dear God, this could be bad I hope Omar has his phone handy.

    The only thing worse than an unpredictable Wagner is no Wagner at all.

    Ehh, I hope Minaya doesn't make a panic move, because A) There are no elite closers on the market and B) You could plug Sanchez into the closers role and get at least equal results to what Fuentes or Street would get you for the remainder of the year. Have Heilman and/or Smith take over the 8th Inning role and give Kunz his first taste of MLB action. That will be just as productive as making a panic trade, and saves several prospects in the process.

    Agreed. Omar has got to be patient. Don't make any panic moves.

    As for Billy, I think he will be fine. You never know, but it just seems to harmless cramping in +100 degree weather.

    Some good news

    Just woke up Mets pr honcho Jay Horwitz (sorry, Jay). Contrary to a report today, closer Billy Wagner is not scheduled to have an MRI today on his throwing shoulder.

    Wagner felt better on the plane last night after having some trouble getting loose yesterday before striking out the side in the 10th inning of the Mets' 7-5 win over the Reds.

    If Wagner wakes up today and feels tightness again, he may go see the Mets' doctor. That's the latest as of 7:40 a.m.


    From the Newsday blog. Hopefully this was nothing.
