Some days I wonder why I even bother trying to get posts up quickly:
The Mets agreed to send Wagner to the Red Sox on Tuesday after the pitcher approved the trade, according to his agent, Bean Stringfellow. The talks were dead as of late Monday night due to Wagner’s refusal to waive his no-trade clause. But Wagner reconsidered at the last minute, lured by the pull of a pennant race.
Or else he did a quick analysis, realized that the Sox are a flawed team that won’t be making the postseason and thus he doesn’t have to worry about throwing any more pitches in Boston than he would have in Queens.
