Braves Collection: Billy Wagner

2011 Topps Diamond Parallel
The Braves go into the 2011 season with two possible closers: a lefty about to start his second season in the big leagues and a righty who I believe still qualifies as a rookie. Still, I'm not worried about the bullpen this season. Both Jonny Venters and Craig Kimbrel sat in the bullpen, during a penant race, with Billy Wagner. They will be ready to go.

Did you know that Billy Wagner is still on the Braves 40-Man roster? It is true, but there's no hope of him coming back. They are just waiting for his paperwork to go through.

It's a pretty card, isn't it? I pulled it myself from a pack.

That was the first diamond parallel card that I pulled. I like the Braves' young pitching this season (Minor, Kimbrel, Venters, maybe even Medlen). I'd be willing to bet that one of those guys has a breakout season, and ends up getting either an All-Star nod, or some sort of recognition.

Nice pull!
