New Regimen

From Jeremy Cothran's NJ.com/Star Ledger Ledger on the Mets:
A few of us are out on the main field, watching Billy Wagner rifle a football back and forth with Pedro's trainer, Chris Correnti. He does this every morning to loosen up his arm, alternating between long and short tosses. Wagner was a QB in high school in the Virginia panhandle, but jokingly admitted he was pretty terrible. Football, however, did help him bulk up, which added sizzle to his fastball.
Apparently (for now) he is done getting in shape by tossing former teams under the bus.

"How much you wanna make a bet I can throw a football over them mountains?... Yeah... Coach woulda put me in fourth quarter, we would've been state champions. No doubt. No doubt in my mind."
