OK, now it's really game over. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Eric Gagne, in addition to being withheld from action tonight (but let's be honest, was he ever really in it?), will be shut down until further notice due to soreness in his right shoulder.
Not a surprise (shoulder stiffness, I mean) given how unnatural an overhand throwing motion is. So maybe Gagne should try throwing underhand? It's not like it'd be any less effective than he already was.
Salomon Torres will blow games for the Brewers in Gagne's absence.
In other Bad Baseball news from Wednesday night...
It was a rough third of an inning for Jesus Colome in the nation's capital. He allowed 6 runs on 6 hits in the top of the 6th inning (creepy!!) to the visiting Phillies. The Nationals were blown out 12-2.
Seattle Mariners starter Jarrod Washburn had a rough go of it in Detroit, allowing 9 runs on 12 hits in 2.1 innings pitched.
Shame on the Kansas City Royals. In the same week they were no-hit by Jon Lester they lost to big, fat Bartolo Colon, giving Colon his first win of 2008.
