From 2002-2004, Gagne was looking like the heir to Marino Rivera's throne. In those three seasons he saved 52, 55 and 47 games, respectively. Between August 26, 2002 and July 5, 2004, he converted 84 consecutive saves, a MLB record. As "Game Over" flashed on the scoreboard, he came out of the Dodger bullpen with his signature goggles and sweat-soaked brim to the tune of "Welcome to the Jungle" and dominated. It all came to a screeching halt in 2005 when his arm gave out resulting in Tommy John surgery. He was never the same and in 2007 he was named in the Mitchell Report with a paper trail to boot. Former Mets' clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski sold Gagne and Dodger teammate Paul Lo Duca HGH and had the shipping receipts to prove it. Game Over.
