I like the idea for now since Gagne clearly needs to figure out whatever his problem is, but it is not a good long term solution because it can wear the shit out of your bullpen as the season wears on. To really be successful we need Gagne to be that guy, he is getting paid $10 million this season for that reason. We shall see how it plays out over the next couple of weeks here.
Well the past couple of years on Mothers Day Bill Hall was the home run hero with that walk-off shot in 2006 and hit a long HR last season in New York, but I think Ryan Braun is the new "king of the pink" as he blasted two home runs today using the pink bat. Braun seems to really be heating up,he has seven hits in the series so far against St. Louis and now has his season AVG upto .281, 7 HR's and 25 RBI's. Also JJ Hardy amazingly looks like he is out of his slump as he was 3-4 today and his his AVG up to .260. Lets hope the rest of the guys also start getting hot so we can get on a roll.
