Yesterday it was revealed that Eric Gagne claims in his upcoming biography that 80% of his teammates with the Dodgers back in the day took PEDs. Adrian Beltre was one of his teammates back then — and people have speculated about him using PEDs in the past — so it was understandable that someone asked him about it yesterday:
“He should have named names. 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.”
Sounds like the same old dance we always hear when this kind of thing bubbles up. Next thing I figure we’ll hear is Gagne walking back his claim of 80%. And at some point in the future someone else from that team will be outed as a PED user and it will all bubble up again.
