Billy Wagner A Brave

The Atlanta Braves have signed free agent Billy Wagner to a one year deal worth $7 million and includes a $6.5 million option if Wagner closes 50 games. Given the fact that the Braves lost both Mike Gonzalez and Rafeal Soriano to free agency, the Braves looked like they would need some bullpen help, but was paying 7 million to Wagner a good use of their money? Or do you think they should have saved some of that money for a hitter? Personally, I think that they could have found a cheaper option given the availability of closers this offseason from either the free agent pool or via a trade.
