>Wagner Restarts The Willie Watch


Wagner went ape after the game…and he’s right….

Wagner looked over toward the area of first baseman Carlos Delgado’s locker and blurted: “Someone tell me why the (expletive) you’re talking to the closer. I didn’t even play. They’re over there, not being interviewed. … I got it. They’re gone. (Expletive) shocker.”

Wagner was asked if his comments were directed toward the team’s Latin players. Former catcher Paul Lo Duca expressed such a sentiment last year when he felt inundated by the media after games.
“I think it’s just certain guys,” Wagner said. “I don’t think it’s Latin, white or black. I don’t think it’s a color thing. I think some guys need to stand there and take the bad with the good.”

Except for Carlos Delgado, who bolted early, all of the team’s Latin players who participated in the game talked. Even a player who didn’t play, Moises Alou, spoke out regarding the Mets’ need to play better.

Might be time for the Willie Watch to restart – after all the team didn’t look to intense against those Nats.
