View Full Version : Gagne's streak is over

Now, I am not going to blow smoke up anyone's ass and say that this streak is one that is more remarkable than DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak or Hershisher's 59 scoreless inning streak, but you gotta admit it was pretty special. It is one thing to break a record, it's another to obliterate it by 30! This record could very well stand until we are all old and gray. My apologies if you are already old and gray! Congrats to Gagne and the DBacks, who always give him trouble.

Another tidbit: This was only the 5th blown save in 134 or so opportunities for Gagne and 2 bave been against the DBacks. I also don't expect his ML record of strikeouts per 9 innings or save percentage based on 100 save chances.
