Billy Wagner Done For The Season

Billy Wagner Done For SeasonNew York Mets closer Billy Wagner needs elbow surgery that likely will sideline him through the 2009 season. The five-time All-Star has been out since Aug. 3 and the Mets said Monday that he has a torn medial collateral ligament in his left elbow and a torn flexor pronator, which is a muscle in the forearm. The 37-year-old left-hander will have surgery later this week.

This is a big hurt to the team as they make their final run for the post season.  Hopefully, they can find a replacement in a hurry.
