Eric Gagne is "The Man!" This failed starter turned closer has saved 46 straight games without blowing one (unless you count the All-Star game). He tied a major league record last night by saving his third game in three nights. two-thirds through this season he has not blown a single save. Just pure bad luck would seem to dictate you'd blow at least one in that time (errors, broken bat singles, etc...). Not Gagne. He is, by far, the lone bright spot on a bad baseball team.
