First of all, Gagne hasn't even been a fantasy option the past few years so it's not like everyone was wasting picks on him last year.
Second, everyone knew going into this year what they were getting with Gagne. I knew I wasn't drafting him unless he was available as a big-time flier at the end. He wasn't because some dope picked him early... in the one league I'm in they got fed up and dropped him.
So, I have the DL space... I picked him and I'll give him the shot. He's a free pitcher and I've got at least 2 guys that I could easily drop for giving Gagne a go at it. I'd expect him to be back once he's elegible and probably end up back on the DL within a month. But, I think he's good for at least a few saves without the huge risk of inflating my ERA and WHIP like Henry Owens or David Weathers.
If you're a battery, you're either working or you're dead....
