Quote:
The Brewers yanked Eric Gagne from the closer's role on Sunday after the reliever called his latest performance embarrassing and said he didn't feel he deserved to pitch the ninth anymore.


Manager Ned Yost said he read Gagne's comments and will use a closer by committee approach while Gagne takes what Yost called a "mental break."


Looks like Yost is going closer by committee...

So much for that $10 Million

If anyone watched him with the Red Sox last year this was not a surprise. He was atrocious down the stretch.

This is no surprise at all.

Too bad the Brewers did not wait until July to pull Gagne from his closer duties. He could have lost 4 or 5 more games for them.
