Man, remember when Eric Gagne was a thing? It was great. Seeing him trot in from the bullpen with "Welcome to the Jungle" blaring on the speakers was a sight to behold. I'm saddened I never got to see it in person.
But when he came in, the game was almost literally over.
Now, he's busy throwing former teammates under the proverbial bus -- kinda.
In Gagne's biography, aptly titled, "Game Over: The Eric Gagne Story," Gagne said roughly 80 percent of his Dodger teammates used some type of performance-enhancing drug. From his book:
"I was intimately aware of the clubhouse in which I lived. I would say
that 80 percent of the Dodgers players were consuming them."
Thankfully(?), he didn't name names.
Gagne admitted to human growth hormone use in 2010 -- two years after his last Major League game. He pitched for Quebec in the Independent League in 2009.
Whatever happened to no snitchin'? Disclosing this information doesn't help anyone -- it didn't really help the Dodgers in tho...
