Former Cy Young Award-winning relief pitcher Eric Gagne reportedly alleges in a new book that 80% of his Dodgers teammates were using performance-enhancing drugs.
The allegation, in which Gagne did not identify the other players, is contained in his upcoming autobiography "Game Over: The Story of Eric Gagne," according to ESPN.
"I was intimately aware of the clubhouse in which I lived," Gagne, a Canadian, writes in the French-language book. "I would say that 80% of the Dodgers were consuming them."
Gagne (pronounced Gon-yay) pitched for the Dodgers from 1999 to 2006, during which time he set a major-league record of converting 84 consecutive saves chances. That prompted the phrase "game over" when he arrived at the mound.
