Goose Gossage Slams Roger Clemens

Goose Gossage, the Hall of Fame reliever and former member of the New York Yankees, has never been shy with his opinions. Today, the legendary hard-throwing reliever threw a high, hard one right under the chin of Roger Clemens during an appearance on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio New York.

Gossage said Clemens does not belong in the Baseball Hall of Fame despite being cleared of charges that he lied about using performance-enhancing drugs.

"Are we going to reward these guys for cheating?" Gossage asked Michael Kay and Don La Greca on ESPN New York 98.7. "Even though he was found innocent, it was because of the bad testimony. No one believed (Brian) McNamee and (Andy) Pettitte kind of changed his thing, 'Did I really hear what he told me.' "

Gossage wasn't done.

"Cheaters? Does a test count when you get busted for cheating on a test. No and neither should steroids. There is no place for them in the Hall of Fame."

Good for Gossage. No matter that he was not convicted, there will always be a cloud of suspicion around Clemens. Baseball does not need to be constantly reminded.
