Eric Gagne claims former Dodgers teammates

Admitted HGH user Eric Gagne says he was far from alone when it came to Los Angeles Dodgers who were juicing during his time with the team.



The former record-setting closer, a Dodger from 1999 to 2006, estimates in his new memoir that “80 percent” of his Los Angeles teammates were using performance-enhancing drugs, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com. The report said he does not reveal the names of players he says were juicing.

“I was intimately aware of the clubhouse in which I lived. I would say that 80 percent of the Dodgers players were consuming them,” Gagne reportedly says in the French language book, “Game Over: The Story of Eric Gagne.”

ESPN said that in the book, Gagne says he used HGH late in his career, over five cycles in a three-year period.  “It was sufficient to ruin my health, tarnish my reputation and throw a shadow over the extraordinary performances of my career,” writes Gagne, who in 2010 admitted to HGH use. He was identified as an HGH user in the Mitchell Report in 2007.

Gagne, the 2003 NL Cy Young Award winner and a three-time All-Star, once converted a major-league record 84 straight save opportunities. The 36-year-old righthander has not pitched in the big leagues since 2008 with Milwaukee
