I Had A Feeling That THAT Trade Would Bite Someone In The Arse

If anyone remembers David Murphy, raise your hands:

It was Saturday, September 2nd, '06, when the Red Sox faced the Blue Jays at Fenway Park. I saw David Murphy, fresh up from Pawtucket, get his 1st Major League Hit. It was a single off A J Burnett;

Then, on July 31st, '07, Murphy was sent to Texas in exchange for that Slab of Canadian Bacon, Eric Gagne'(Gagne', Often called Gag-Me by Fenway Denizens, is now with Quebec City in the Can-Am League, as Pitching Coach, as I speak, perhaps awaiting a Phone Call, from Omar Minaya);

Minaya would be strung from a Citi Field Light Tower, if he ever made that phone call. So would the same thing happen to Jeffy;

Reality Bites, as Murphy had 3 Hits off Daisuke Matsuzaka, including a Double, driving in 2 Runs, as Texas defeated the Red Sox, in front of 37, 787 Spectators at The Fens. Dice-K K'd 8, but allowed 5 Runs on 10 Hits in 5 2/3 Innings. Final was 6-3 Texas Rangers. Michael Young homered off Dice-K. Vicente Padilla got the Win;

& Eric Gagne' still SUCKS;

It was still the right move at the time. Gagne was the best available relief pitcher at the time, and the Sox needed help, with Okajima tiring and Papelbon still coming off an injured late 2006 and they were careful about his innings total. Murphy was strictly a fourth outfielder who wouldn't get much playing time at Fenway and they did him a favor sending him to Texas. Theo took a chance. It just didn't work.

To be understood, but I had bad vibes that day:

Can you believe it-Eric Gagne's a Pitching Coach in Quebec City?
