Bullpen Is The Key

David Lennon at On The Mets Beat writes about an interview with Billy Wagner who put his spin on the Johan Santana trade:

"Definitely it’s an improvement," Wagner said. "Johan is definitely a huge step in the right direction. Butwe’ve got to put it in perspective, too. He’s coming from Minneapolis, where there’sone of you [reporters]. I mean, we can’t put a lot of pressure on him to do more than he can do. I think that once he settles in and gets comfortable, and relaxes around us and the fans of New York, then he’ll settle in. If he starts out and does well, it’s a bonus for us. But our bullpen, that’s the whole key."
