Gagne Ends Mental Break; Is Clearly Mental

| | Comments (5)
crazy britney.jpgI'll make this quick. Eric Gagne says he's ready to close again. Yeah, the same guy I wrote about yesterday. He says Sunday was his "mental break" and now he's ready to get back out there. Some choice quotes:

Gagne met briefly during batting practice with St. Louis closer Jason Isringhausen, who recently was removed from that role for a mental break, also.

"It always helps to talk to closers," said Gagne. "We're the only people that really know how we feel. We're a little different."

As for returning to the closing role, Gagne said: "I think I'm ready to go out there. I want to go out there as soon as I can. I know how to close. That's the only thing I know how to do.

It's the only thing you know how to do? Can someone mail him a DeVry catalog? Today?

Ugh. I know one thing he's succeeding at. Making me feel as depressed as he seems himself.

Eric Gagne is Barbaro and Eric Gagne's brain is Barbaro's hoof.

He's very good at growing facial hair and looking like a doofus. I'm sure there's a career in that

Like fronting an Emo band.

Second week of May and you need a mental break from your job?
Tonight I'll make sure there's more lavender in the potpourri for you, cupcake.

@Rob: grow lobe, grow?...

matt_t: those are the makings of a top Lacrosse player.
