Eric Gagne recently wrote an autobiography, and on Wednesday we found out that it contains at least one bombshell piece of information. In the book, “Game Over: The Story of Gagne,” the former closer calls most of his former Dodgers teammates cheaters by estimating that a whopping 80 percent of them used human growth hormone.

One of his former teammates, Adrian Beltre, wishes Gagne had been more specific.

“He should have named names,” Beltre said Thursday according to the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t know what you want me to tell you … For him to say something like that, he should have come out with names instead of a percentage.”

Beltre and Gagne were teammates from 1999-2004. The 2004 season was by far Beltre’s most productive offensively. He hit 48 homers and drove in 121 runs that season. He has belted 35 homers this year — the second-highest total of his career — and has never driven in more than 105 runs in a season aside from 2004.

Based on the numbers Beltre had when he played with Gagne, he would probably be a lock for the 80 percent who used performance-enhancing drugs for people who believe Gagne’s theory. If he truly did not use steroids during those seasons, you can understand why Beltre would be upset that Gagne didn’t name names. Unless you think Gagne is full of it, Beltre 2004 numbers make him a prime suspect.
