Eric Gagne's was sore following last night's save.
Although Gagne's discomfort was apparent, he continued to pitch, and nobody from the dugout went to the mound. He twice hit 92 mph with his fastball, but more often was around 89. Afterward, clubhouse comments were carefully worded.
"Carefully worded?" Sounds like the only player who will do nearly as well as Carl Pavano over the 2005-2006 time period is going to be Eric Gagne.
Danys Baez may be closing much sooner than anticipated. Broxton isn't in the mix.
Ironically, it was a disastrous appearance by 2007's nominal closer Broxton who created the save opportunity.
