Stay classy, Rich Gossage

Gossage

It’s a great morning for absurd comps.  A little after reading Mike Lupica compare the MLBPA to “gun nuts” Hall of Famer Goose Gossage compares PED users to double murderers:

“We’ve got a bunch of cheaters that are up for the Hall of Fame … 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.”

Probably worth noting that, unlike Clemens, O.J. Simpson is in the Hall of Fame.

Anyway, glad we’re all keeping perspective here.

    Goose is certainly entitled to his opinion, but he is living proof that “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt” .

    Sounds to me more that he was using OJ as an example of another man found innocent. The comparison was made just to illustrate that many guilty people walk free, even murderers. All Goose wants is for the cheaters to come clean, and just because they haven’t been convicted, does not mean they didn’t cheat. HELLO BRAUN/RODGERS.
