What the hell would they have paid Gagne if he wasn't one of the worst pitchers in baseball for the final months of the season? 16 million?

They collect bad RP's like the Cubs collect shitty middle infielders.

Speaking of shitty middle infielders, HEF, Chris Burke is on the trading block. You think the Cubs have any interest? lol

I'm sure Hendry will find a way to get Neifi back before trading for Burke.

Ouch. Coming out of Bean Town are emails between Theo and a scout confirming that Gagne is a "steroid guy" prior to making the trade for him. The Brewers had to have known too.

"Coming out of Bean Town are emails between Theo and a scout confirming that Gagne is a "steroid guy" prior to making the trade for him." Those were in the Mitchell report, same thing with Donnelly.

Yup. Didn't read the same thing about Donnelly likely because I didn't care about him. :) So the Mitchell report says the same thing about Donnelly?

Yup. Don't know if it was Theo in particular, but there was an email exchange from the Boston front office about Donnelly in the report. Basically an exec asking a scout if there was anything on Donnelly and the scout telling the executive that Donnelly was probably a juicer, and therefore a "likely breakdown candidate" or words to that effect. From before they acquired him.

I'll take your word for it as I am a little sick of reading the report. :) I find it highly unlikely these gm's don't know conisdering the amount of money they invest in these guys.

No, it sounds like they (GM's in general) were a lot more in-tune with what's been going on than they tried to lead everybody to believe. Here's a story from up near your neck of the woods with the direct quotes from the report. Not much ambiguity in them, they seemed to have a REAL good idea what these two were up to before they acquired them. http://www.gloucestertimes.com/pusports/local_story_348094017?keyword=secondarystory
