The Brewers are closing in on a one year deal with Eric Gagne, according to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports. The Brewers are already improving their bullpen with David Riske, Salomon Torres, and now Eric Gagne. I think Gagne will thrive with in Milwaukee where the media will not be all over the team. Unlike Boston, he will be able to enjoy and thrive in a stadium where the fans aren't always on you. The signing of Gagne could suggest a trade involving Derrick Turnbow, but I doubt it. I think they want to have the best pitching in the NL Central, because that is probably what will win the division. They have not said whether or not they will pursue more pitching, and with the signing of Gagne, I doubt they will do much more.
