CLEVELAND -- With Eric Gagne finally pitching like his old self following two elbow operations and back surgery, the Boston Red Sox acquired the reliever on Tuesday from the Texas Rangers, who also unloaded first baseman Mark Teixeira to Atlanta in a seven-player swap.

Gagne waived his no-trade clause to join the American League East leaders and agreed to be Boston's set-up man after the Red Sox restructured the reliever's contract, ESPN.com's Buster Olney reports. Boston will pick up $2.1 million in Gagne's performance bonuses, while the Rangers will pay $400,000.

IF Gagne stays healthy and thats a big if then I think the Sawx have the best 1-2-3 combo in Gagne, Okajima and Papelbon. Thats very impressive there.

Boy..has Gagne stunk up the joint or what. He's been just dreadful and now the Yanks are only 4 games back. Watch out Red Sawx Nation..the Yanks are right behind you.
