What would it take to make someone like Billy Wagner attractive enough to sign him if the Sox offer him arb? What if we could sign him for essentially what we signed Percy for? After the latest report, there is speculation he might lower his asking price to make himself more appealing. So my question is, is he, at this speculated price, appealing to you?
ESPN's Buster Olney: "Wagner made $10.5 million in 2009, but if he were to make himself very affordable (for example, two years for a total of $10 million), a team would look at the savings for someone who is capable of being an elite closer as being enough to offset the potential loss of the draft pick."
