    The one thing Wagner does still have going is his strikeout rate, ~one per inning. But what the heck has happened to his control? I’m amazed at how badly he’s done this year. I really thought he was going to dominate when he went down there and be up for promotion once Rick White imploded. It’s really frustrating to see this. -j

    Thanks for catching that Doug. I fixed that, and will remember that for the future.

    Is that the Drew Anderson that played for The Ohio State University? Call that man up if so.

    I wonder if Wagner is still pouting over being sent down? I don’t know that has anything to do with his performance. Just wondering.

    Wagnewr is at an important cross-roads — very close to like what Brandon Phillips needed — a change of scenary.

    Maybe Ryan Wagner will be the PTBNL in the BP deal.

    Has anyone heard or read anywhere who might be the PTBNL in the Phillips and/or Cody Ross deals?

    I have not but the release of Stratton got me to thinking about that. Are we suddenly so deep that we can afford to simply release Stratton AND give up two m ore guys in a few weeks as PTBNL for those two earlier deals?

    PTBNL – Someone commented within the past couple of weeks that a PTBNL is usually a player from the most recent draft, but trading rules require the draftee to be a professional for a full year before he can be traded.
