Red Sox Nation breathes easier

Christmas came a couple of weeks early for Boston Red Sox fans -- Eric Gagne is pitching somewhere else in 2008.

The erstwhile Cy Young Award winner is heading back to the National League, agreeing to a preliminary deal with the Milwaukee Brewers.

That's good news for fans of both teams. Gagne long has thrived in pressure-free environments, but struggled mightily in his three months in Boston.

The Brewers needed a closer after Francisco Cordero signed with Cincinnati. The Red Sox just need to rid themselves of Gagne for the sake of both parties.

Now everyone can be happy -- none more so that our esteemed sports editor Scott Ferrell.
