WAGNER IMPRESSED BY METS

New, 5 comments

Free agent closer Billy Wagner likes what he sees. On his meeting with the Mets:

"I thought it was very good," Wagner told The Post by phone yesterday. "I thought everything was very casual, very laid back, and they made it a point to really speak to my wife and make her feel comfortable."
On the type of team he will sign with:
"Well, an atmosphere of winning, the dedication of winning," he said. "Being confident that they would go out and do whatever it takes to put a winner on the field. That to me, is career-wise. And then I want my family to be comfortable. I know me and my family can be comfortable in New York. I probably wouldn't even live in the city. I'd live in Connecticut."
Considering all of his potential suitors, Wagner might be looking for a four-year, $40 million deal.
