Gagne must waive his no-trade clause to Boston for the deal to be completed. It is possible the Red Sox will allow him to share the closer's role with Jonathan Papelbon.
What a ridiculous bullpen if he goes to Boston.
This is what I was talking about. This isn't going to happen is it?
Probably just to keep Paps fresh for the playoffs so he doesn't fade like last year. He will still get the majority of the ops, but I wouldnt be surprised to see Gagne get a few save chances when Paps has already pitched 2 or more times in a given week. Gagne should get a few more saves than the average set-up guy from here on out.
