Adrian Beltre reacts to Eric Gagne's PED claims
Gagne, whose book is in French and titled: "Game Over: The Story of Eric Gagne," admitted using human growth hormone over five cycles in a three-year period toward the end of his career.

Beltre, who was teammates with Gagne when the pitcher won the Cy Young in 2003, said he doesn't have any interest in reading the book, especially when informed it's in French.
