Baseball from the Shyster's point of view.
It's reported that Gagne = Type B so no draft pick "is lost". Boston gets a supplemental round selection, I believe.
Ah. Thanks, Anon. It helps to, you know, actually read the article you're blogging about once in a while . . .
Since the Brewers were willing to spend $42 million for 4 years of Francisco Cordero, there was room in the budget for one year of Gagne at $10 million, and a much shorter commitment. The alternatives were to let Derrick Turnbow close (not a pretty picture) or trade Ricky Weeks (or someone like him) for a year of Chad Cordero or Joe Nathan. When looked at that way, it starts to make more sense.
