What surprise. Don't waive NTC-stay on sinking ship, waive NTC, get with playoff contender. Hard choice.

Wagner just had Tommy John surgery a year ago, didn't he? I thought it usually takes about 18 months for you to be completely back.

My guess is this works out about as well as Eric Gagne.

He has K'd four guys in two innings. Probably a better option than Javier Lopez.

Must be nice to eat over $3 million for a month of work from a guy with a newly-assembled arm.

Didn't Wagner refuse to waive his NTC? That's what was reported on ESPN this morning.

He must really be good friends with Paplebon. Maybe those comments will hurt the Sox tonight and give us a fighting chance.

That was then.

Looks like they agreed not to exercise his option but retained the right to offer arbitration. Each side got something out of the deal.

Though I won't argue about how long it takes to come back from TJ surgery - I will say the big difference between Gagne and Wagner will be that Gagne was no longer on the juice when he joined Boston. Wagner never was on it.
