Gag(me) Gagne is back!

According to JSOnline, Eric Gagne is back with the Brewers. He signed a minor league contract with an invitation to spring camp. The terms of his contract are yet to be disclosed.

Gagne will compete for the setup role. Last season he went 4-3 with a 5.44 era, and 10 saves in 17 chances. He was stripped of the closer position for Solomon Torres who retired after the season.

Minor league deal? No risk, but there won't be any reward. I don't see him on the Brewers roster this year unless he somehow shakes his funk.

There's a guy that steroids did wonders for. It's like having Derrick Turnbow back on the team. Just a complete waste of roster space if he actually makes the team but might as well give him the chance, in case there is that small-miniscule chance that he redeems himself.
