NEW YORK Baseball’s newest Hall of Famer, hard throwing relief ace Rich “Goose” Gossage, said on Wednesday that players who had used steroids should admit it and that records set by users should not be allowed to stand.
Bonds, who has won an unprecedented seven Most Valuable Player awards and holds the single season and career total records in home runs, has been charged with lying to a grand jury about never taking steroids.wholesale nfl jerseys from china Senator George Mitchell as being injected with steroids by his former trainer, has collected an unprecedented seven Cy Young Awards as top pitcher in his league.
“The records can’t stand. There’s just too much at stake here with the history of the game,” Gossage said. “The richest thing about baseball is the tradition and the history that we have in this sport. These records to me mean nothing.
“I’m not going to sit here and say I never would have done that if I had been in that situation, trying to prolong my career with the money that was out there to be made.
Gossage meets with Cashman and Girardi over bat
TAMPA, Fla. Hall of Famer Goose Gossage has met with New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi one day after criticizing Toronto star Jose Bautista and New York Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes for the way the pair celebrated home runs during the playoffs last year.
Gossage, a Yankees’ spring training guest instructor, said Friday that everything is good between him and the team, but doesn’t regret his comments.
“No, not really . I said what I said,” Gossage said. “I was passed the torch, a certain way to act. Flipping the bat is not part of it. All the things that I said, Bautista just came into mind. I was asked a question, and got it off my chest. Hopefully, they think about it.
“Nobody else is going to tell them not to do it. None of their teammates. Act like Jeter, act like Mo (Mariano Rivera). Act like a professional. That’s all.”
Gossage called Bautista a “disgrace to the game” during a profanity laced interview in Tampa on Thursday.
“He’s embarrassing to all the Latin players, whoever played before him,” Gossage told ESPN Thursday. “Throwing his bat and acting like a fool, like all those guys in Toronto. Cespedes, same thing.”
Bautista memorably flipped his bat after hitting a three run homer that gave the Blue Jays the lead in the seventh inning in Game 5 of the AL Division Series against Texas.
Cespedes added his own highlight bat flip after a home run during Game 3 of the NL Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
“I just kind of lost my mind there for a minute,” Gossage said. “You’re talking to an old school guy, man. And there are things I have a hard time with.”
Gossage also said in Thursday’s interview that baseball is becoming a joke because of the nerds running it.
“They expressed where they were coming from with the analytics,” Gossage said. “I understood some things where they were coming from, and it was a good meeting.”
Benjamin Lavin made the discovery at his apartment in early April.
“The first few days she was there I thought she was just hanging out,” he said. “A few days later I noticed eggs on my tomato planter.”
Lavin set up a webcam to watch his unexpected houseguest lay five eggs. He wanted to keep an eye on them from school and work, as he was worried about what might happen to the goslings when they hatch.
is quite normal for geese to nest at high elevations, said Kim Blomme, Director, Wildlife Services, Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Edmonton, who added geese nest up high in the wild as well.
even in the wild we can say for sure that the whole batch is going to survive.http://www.cheapnfljerseysonlinez.top in an urban environment if they end up landing on concrete, they can definitely take a bounce, it isn certain death, but it definitely a harder surface than landing in a yard or grass, she added.
The Canada goose is protected under federal law, so moving the animal and her eggs before the hatch was not an option. Worried the goslings wouldn’t survive the 10 storey trip to the ground, Lavin called the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Edmonton for help.
“I think the plan is, once Lucy goes down to the street and starts calling for the babies to come down, then I be able to go out there and put the goslings in a box,” said Lavin.
“I just going to take them down to the street level and then, you know, help them across the roads to wherever they going to get to.”
Lavin is anticipating the move will go ahead sometime within the first 24 hours of the hatching.
“It been interesting. It been a very unique experience to be able to watch the whole process, from her scouting out her nest in the first place, to then laying the eggs and incubating them, and now hatching them. It been really cool,” he said, adding it will be different once his houseguests are gone.
