I don’t know how often I can discuss
one incident ~STEROIDS OMG!!!~ in my entire life, but I’ll continue to do that.
When it comes to the topic of not allowing certain major league baseball players into Cooperstown, the Goose is happy to let loose.
“We’ve got a bunch of cheaters that are up for the Hall of Fame,’’ offered Rich ‘Goose’ Gossage, who was himself inducted into the hallowed hall in 2008. “Absolutely not. I’ve taken a stand on that. I’ve said the pressures of taking steroids are tremendous. If you have two kids with the same talent level, one on steroids and one not on steroids, you have two different animals. I wish these guys who are lying would come clean. Roger Clemens was found innocent but so was O.J. and he killed two people. Stop lying and quit dragging baseball through the mud.
“I liken it to what they’ve done to Lance Armstrong, stripped him of his seven Tour de Frances. I would like to see them re-instate those great records that were broken and not recognize what these guys have done with these tainted records.’’
