Gagne On Cubs' Radar?
With the Cubs headed to Texas, rumors are out in full force, claiming the Cubs are eyeing a Rangers reliever.
The New York Daily News speculated Sunday that manager Lou Piniella will urge general manager Jim Hendry to pick up a "power relief arm a la' Eric Gagne" before the July 31 trading deadline.
Gagne, one of the most dominant closers in the game as a Los Angeles Dodger from 2002-04 (142 saves in that span), is 1-0 with a 0.50 ERA and seven saves in 19 appearances with the Rangers this year. But he's also been on and off the disabled list the last three years with back, elbow and hip problems.
