TTM Success - Billy Wagner
Wagner (b. 1971) played in the majors from 1995 to 2010 for the Astros, Phillies, Mets, Red SOx and Braves. He had a career record of 47-40 with 1,196 strike outs and an ERA of 2.31. His 422 saves are 6th all-time. He was a 7-time All Star (1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2010). His best finishes for the Cy Young Award (4th) and NL MVP (16th) both came during the 1999 season where he went 4-1 with a 1.57 ERA and 39 saves.
Wagner has appeared on two Hall of Fame ballots (2016 - 10.0%; 2017 - 10.2%) and many sports commentators feel he has a strong case to receive more votes over time when the glut of names on the ballot is reduced somewhat.
I mailed to Wagner on March 20 and got the cards back on April 5, for a 16-day TAT.
