Billy Wagner, Ernie Harwell and Business as Usual

B illy Wagner was one of the guys who some thought might end up in a Tigers uniform in 2010 but it looks like he’ll be signing with the Braves.  He’ll make $7 million and that kind of sets the market for all of those closers out there.  I also read that both Fernando Rodney and Brandon Lyon were being looked at by the Yankees.  The Winter Meetings are next week so things should get interesting pretty quickly.

It looks like despite Ernie Harwell’s health problems that he hasn’t lost his sense of humor.  His ears must have been burning because Alan Trammell and Kirk Gibson were telling stories about him at a talk in Grosse Pointe when he showed up at the top of the steps.  This looks like an event that was well worth attending and I’d be interested to hear from anyone who was there.

My latest business report is up over at the Hardball Times.  It was a slow week but I touch on Bud Selig’s retirement and where salaries landed in 2009.
