Gagne To Boston    

One brilliant maneuver after another...

The Red Sox picked up Eric Gagne for Kason Gabbard, David Murphy and a 17-yo minor league stud Engel Beltre.  It's a sorely needed move to shore up the bullpen, one that does not require the Sox to part with so much as Manny Delcarmen, let alone Clay Buchholz and friends.  Bravo.

Gagne has agreed to work the 8th inning, allowing Jonathan Papelbon to remain as closer.  Bravo to both Gagne and Scott Boras for not being assholes about not closing.

Speaking of assholes, have the Yankees done anything yet?  Apart from booting Scott Proctor to the Dodgers?  This is quite unlike them... picking up Wilson Betemit is all they'll do?  Something else must be in the works...

  • I hear they're trying to send Kyle Farnsworth to Manny Ramirez for a half-eaten bag of fertilizer and a grill...

  • Yeah, I think the Proctor trade is a steal for the Yanks in principle, but I'm shocked they didn't manage to upgrade their bullpen as well. Fishy.

  • Oh and yes I agree, very good move for Boston here (and maybe also for the Rangers). And with the Yankees' only move looking more like preparing for next year than gearing up for the rest of this year? When was the last time that happened? Good day to be a Boston fan.
