The one-year, $10 million contract given to Eric Gagne for the 2008 season was unlike any ever given to a Brewers relief pitcher.
The organization was in desperate need of a closer, however, and Gagne was coming off an impressive year in '07 in which he earned 32 saves with an ERA of 3.83.
His eight blown saves were of little concern considering he pitched 103.3 innings and had 102 strikeouts.
Fans were excited to hear his name called as he entered Miller Park to the sounds of "Welcome to the Jungle" blaring through the PA.
Trevor Hoffman earned himself a similar contract, worth up to $8 million in 2010, after an '09 in which he recorded 37 saves in 54 innings pitched with an intimidating ERA of 1.83.
Fans were excited to hear his name called as he entered Miller Park to the sounds of "Hells Bells" blaring through the PA.
