I think that with Papelbon likely to go into the rotation, the Red Sox would be a good fit for Gagne.

Possibly. As Pogo mentioned I think he would be solid for the Indians or Reds. If they want that extra edge to win games, they've got to have a guy that can bail them out. However, Gagne is a huge risk. :-°

The Sox are rumored to be going hard for a Japanese player to close for them next year. (There's a thread on it around here somewhere....) If they get him, I doubt they'll want/need to go for Gagne.

SF, ATL, CIN, FL, and CLE all seem like good options.


I think you can add the Cubs to that list as well as I personally think that will be Gagne's destination. They have money to spendm, more so when Dusty is rightfully fired. I believe Hendry and his teammates have lost all confidence in Dempster closing games, most people have. Though, I do think Dempster could be a usefull member in a pen, just not as closer. The Giants have 1 more year to put up with Benitez, the Braves I think will sign Beaz or Wickman, if he doesn't retire. The Reds know that Guardado isn't an option anymore since he's out for the year and was a pending FA anyways. I think right now they have Balfour or Bray close at minimal cost unless they can swing a trade for someone like like Turnbrow or Soriano, someone young, talented, and cheap. Which will be hard to find. The Marlins need a closer but I don't think they go for a big name. I could actually see them go after Turnbrow since I think the Indians have fallen in love with the ideal of bringing in Dotel as their closer, which they've been pretty public about.

Not based on anything, but I wouldn't mind seeing the Yanks try to get him. Of course he'd have to be up for set up duty.

Some possibilities in my mind: Boston (if they don't get that Japanese player), Cubs, Reds, SF, maybe Arizona if they think they can compete next year.

That all depends on the success on Jose Valverde. The Diamondbacks believe he can be dominant as the closer and they'll give him the job next year if he can continue to impress them.
