Eric Gagne expresses "regrets" about past

Leave a comment

Eric Gagne addressed questions about his past connections to performance-enhancing drugs upon arriving to Dodgers’ camp on Saturday, according to Jeff Fletcher of AOL Fanhouse:

“I’ve said it 150 times, it’s always going to be on my resume for the
rest of my life,” Gagne told reporters. “People will second-guess
everything I do and if I have a good year they’ll all second guess.
That’s normal. I’m not expecting anything else. But for me it’s over. I
have to go on. I can talk about it every day. It doesn’t matter. I
still have to go out and pitch and perform.”

Gagne, who turned 34 in January, signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers this week. Honestly, I almost forgot Gagne was included in the Mitchell Report and that’s probably because he’s been completely irrelevant for so long.
