The Biggest Alleged (and Confirmed) Steroid-Fueled Broken Records in Sports History

Most Consecutive Saves Converted (84)

Athlete: Eric Gagne

: Baseball
When: 2002-2004

From 2002 to 2004, there wasn't a relief pitcher as dominant as Eric Gagne. Throughout those seasons, Gagne set a record for most consecutive saves converted with 84 and in 2003, he was given the National League Cy Young award. However, after those sparkling years, Gagne's career took a nosedive due to back-to-back injury-plagued seasons. To add insult to injury, Gagne's name came up in the Mitchell Report in 2007 with accusations that the pitcher used human growth hormone. With his baseball days in the rearview, Gagne confessed to using HGH in 2010, but tried covering it up saying that he used it to recover from a knee injury. Last month Gagne said 80 percent of his Dodgers teammates used HGH. Did we mention that he's hawking his book? Hmm...this sounds slightly familiar.
