Gagne for detritus? Very nice. I'll take it. The Sox just added a 3rd impact arm for what equates to 1 of 3 4th outfielder options, a #5 starter with #4 upside (though he was obviously pitching admirably, as new left-handers are want to do), and a guy that was 4 years+ away from the majors. In exchange, the Sox have a strong bullpen, one not disimilar from Foulke, Timlin, Embree of '04 (when those 3 names were good). Papelbon, Gagne, Okajima. Hopefully, Schilling comes back with a vengence such that our playoff opponants only see:

Beckett, Schilling, Matsuzaka, Lester
Papelbon, Gagne, Okajima, Delcarmen

Followed by a string of zeroes.
