    Ryan Wagner retires

    The end of an era.

    http://natsnewsnetwork.blogspot.com/...r-retires.html


    Nationals Farm Authority is reporting that RHP Ryan Wagner has retired. This news surprised me since he looked pretty sharp the day that we saw him at spring training.

    Wagner was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in 2003 and acquired by the Nationals in the trade with Austin Kearns and Felipe Lopez for Bill Bray, Royce Clayton, Brendan Harris, Gary Majewski and Daryl Thompson. Ryan's major league debut was July 19, 2003 and has been playing in AAA Syracuse in 2009. Wagner ends his career with an 11-9 record and 4.79 ERA.

    Violent delivery, an oddity and the reason why some scouts said it was bad pick.

    Without Jim Bowden there to support him what future did he have?

    Hope he invested his bonus money well.

    Go find your life's work, Ryan

    He'd only been around for seven years? Wow. Talk about a huge David Clydesque flame out.

    Sad but true.

    He looked to have had some promise. It's a shame.
