  • "Who is the second most insufferable Hall of Famer? Is anyone close to Gossage?" Sandberg's pretty bad.

  • Btw, I remain stunned that Gossage is in the hall considering that by the time of his election, 2008, his numbers looked like crap in comparison to a whole lot of modern day relievers. Now THAT is a situation where no hyperbole is too great. Gossage's induction was worse than Auschwitz, Tamurlane, and Ghenghis Khan COMBINED."

  • "Rich (Silly Goose) Gossage, the noted relief pitcher for the San Diego Padres, is in trouble with the front office. Padre president Ballard Smith has suspended Silly Goose for the remainder of the season....Silly Goose got mad at Smith because Smith indicated that the team would not sign free agents with a drug history or those who refused testing. Gossage got even madder when Smith banned beer in the Padre clubhouse in early July. So Gossage called Smith "spineless and gutless.""
