Red Sox pitcher Eric Gagne continues to struggle.
After Red Sox pitcher Eric Gagne blew a save in a 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays on 09/18/07, Sox manager Terry Francona talked about how you have to put players in the game even when they are struggling. Everyone recalls how Dustin Pedroia was struggling in April, and now he’s a candidate for the Rookie of the Year award.
Tito’s post-game quote on 09/18/07 was great. And it’s worth remembering as Eric Gagne (who came to the Sox on the 07/31/07 trade deadline) continues to struggle:
“When it’s hard to believe, it’s our job to believe.”
Four games to play. Magic number to clinch the East is two.
