Billy Wagner

William Edward "Billy the Kid" Wagner
Batted: Left
Threw: Left
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 180 lb.
Born: July 25, 1971 in Tannersville, VA
Drafted: 1st round 1993 by the Houston Astros
Acquired: as a free agent, November 2005
Departed: traded to the Boston Red Sox for two players to be named later (
Chris Carter and Eddie Lora), August 2009

 

One of the most dominant left-handed closers ever--can you name one better? Nicknamed "Country Time" by the vast nation of Mets bloggers. Billy's final season in the big leagues may well have been his best, but he had already determined that it would be his last, and—true to his word—he retired. He's pictured here on an autographed 1997 Topps Gallery card; there are more cards shown below.
