Re: Gagne: "80% of Dodgers teammates were using PEDs"
Not that the problem of PED usage is over, but Gagne hasn't pitched for the Dodgers since 2006. I think many players from the old generation of PED use, of Gagne's era, are gone. Looking at his Dodgers teammates from that time, you had guys who were definitely using like Guillermo Mota, Matt Herges, Paul Lo Duca, and Gary Sheffield, in addition to guys who had question marks by their name like Shawn Green and Kevin Brown.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
