Gagne no longer Brewers closer

11 05 2008

After yesterday afternoon’s game, Eric Gagne said that he did not deserve the closer’s job in Milwaukee. He said that his struggles have been embarrassing. I agree.

Apparently, so does Ned Yost. After being informed of Gagne’s comments after the game, Yost removed Gagne as Milwaukee’s closer. He did not say who would take over the job, but did imply that it would be a mix of relievers. Salomon Torres, David Riske, and Guillermo Mota have all had experience in the closer’s role. I would like to believe Mota is first on the list, followed closely by Torres. Time will tell, however. Yost said that it will depend on matchups.

If you want more detail on Gagne’s struggles, read down a couple posts.
