EGagne - About to be Traded?

Postby powenM » Mon Jun 11, 2007 10:06 pm

Heard from Jeff Rimmer Cleveland talk show host on Toronto's fan590 that Cleveland r in strong pursuit of EGagne. It could happen soon. Details of who might go to Texas was not discussed.

If this comes to fruition(And its a very HOT Rumour)this obviously will impact owners of JBorowski & AOtsuka.
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

It would depend how far the Rangers fall out of contention by the deadline and at this point it looks very likely that Gagne will be traded. A lot of teams are in need of a strong RP/CL so Gagne should yield some good value for the Rangers if they call the season dead by the deadline.

I doubt anything this big goes down this far away from the deadline. Teams will usually want to wait to try to get the best value for their big names. But who knows. I just hope wherever he goes he closes (Gagne owner).

I think he'll close where he ends up because I'm 95 percent sure he has a no-trade clause which he probably wouldn't waive to be a setup guy. But, I'm not totally sure about the clause.

Oh ok, I didn't know he had a no-trade clause. Good to know then. ;D

If closing is more important to Gagne than being on a contender than that's pretty sad.

I'm sure he would welcome a deal to Cleveland if he is any kind of a competitor.
