Eric Goné

The Journal Sentinel:
With Eric Gagné having trouble keeping the ball in the park — he has allowed damaging home runs in his last two outings — manager Ned Yost said he probably will start mixing it up in the eighth inning. Gagné has surrendered 11 homers in 37 2/3 innings.
MLB.com:
"[The home runs allowed] are more glaring because they're in one-run games."
Seems everyone is noticing that Gagne has been hemorrhaging taters worse than Ireland during the Potato Famine, but just how bad is his case of gopheritis?


Pretty bad, it turns out. Only 11 pitchers since 1901 have allowed as many or more homers than Gagne in the same or fewer amount of batters faced (175) (Amazingly enough, he's only third this year, as Jaime Walker and Oscar Villarreal have "beaten" him, surrendering 12 in 159 and 12 in 168, respectively). In fact, Gagne has been so bad this season that he's literally off the chart:

As Steve Martin said in Parenthood, "Ah, that was money well spent."
