Gagne finally speaks

18 02 2008

UPDATE 02-18-07 11:34AM – Here is the official and complete transcript of what Eric said.

Many speculated as to whether or not Eric Gagne was going to speak to the media concerning his inclusion in the Mitchell Report. I personally thought that he would never address it, but today the question was answered. He did speak to the media…and he didn’t at the same time.

Gagne apologized for the “distraction” he brought to the team, but he never explicitly addressed the Mitchell Report. He tried to appease his critics and those who said Milwaukee made a mistake by signing him, yet he never confessed to anything. He didn’t even mention the name “Mitchell Report” to the media. Apparently, Gagne mentioned the Mitchell Report to the French media that came from his hometown, Montreal, but he never directly addressed it to the English-speaking media.

All in all, Eric Gagne got his “obligatory media appearance” out of the way, and he can now focus on baseball.
