It's official. I hate Gagne. If possible, I hate him more than I hated Kim, and that's saying something. He's like the grim reaper of baseball. He comes out on the field and you know it's not gonna end well...unless you're rooting for the other team. Last night, I fell asleep and the first thing I did when I woke up was check the MLB text messages on my phone. "LP: Gagne" told me all I needed to know.

Mind you, I never really liked him to begin with. I mean, the media was all "whoo-hoo Gangé, now the Sox are going to be unstoppable!" but I was skeptical. "Better than Okajima and Papelbon? How is that possible?" I took a wait and see attitude. Soon enough, my wariness paid off. Despite constant reminders of his amazing record (to which I'd retort, "fine, but what has he done for us lately?") I refused to recognise him as the Best Thing Ever. I think the best comment on his career as a Red Sock was in Tampa, when the crowd booed him.

A lot of words have been written about M. Gagné in the past several hours, both professionally and on LiveJournal. So here I am adding a few more.

Maudit Calisse. Retourné a Montréal.

The last few times I saw him on the mound, I briefly thought that the Red Sox had signed Penn Jillette. FWIW, I think Penn might have more control over his fastball.

Teller would have more control over his fastball.

What you said.
It seems like no matter how we are doing in the game, when they put in Gagne, we lose. We should lose Gagne now, besides not being that great a pitcher he just seems to be bad luck.

Somewhere I read someone say, "WFT Francona, you put Gagné in...what are you thinking? Did you just decide, oh, you didn't want to win Game 2?"

As I tell people who like him, he's an albatross.
