    Gagne apologizes for "distraction" - Brewers Blog

    Phoenix - New Brewers closer Eric Gagne said he was sorry this morning for "the distraction" created by his inclusion in the Mitchell Report but did not admit to taking illegal performance-enhancing drugs.

    After making his one-minute statement to a gathering of 15 or so members of the media, including TV stations from his hometown of Montreal, Gagne declined to take questions. He repeated his comments in French for the Canadian journalists and mentioned the Mitchell Report to them, which he did not do in English.

    "I'm here today to talk to you guys to let you know I feel bad for my family and what they had to go through, and all my friends, and especially my teammates here in Milwaukee," said Gagne. "I think it's a distraction that shouldn't be taking place. I'm just here to help the Milwaukee Brewers get to the World Series and get to the playoffs. That's all I really care about."

        Not really. The news of Gagne's PED use didn't really seem to effect the franchise, had there not been the issue with Clemens and Pettite we might've heard more about the Gagnes and the Tejadas.
        It seems to be behind him (Gagne), we should be happy he is willing to move on.
