Goose Gossage tirade targets baseball's front-office 'nerds' and stars

Hall of Fame pitcher Goose Gossage said that MLB executives consist of a lot of “nerds” turning baseball into a “joke.”

“It is a joke,” Gossage said. “The game is becoming a freaking joke because of the nerds who are running it.

“I’ll tell you what has happened, these guys played Rotisserie baseball at Harvard or wherever the f— they went and they thought they figured the f—ing game out. They don’t know s—.

“A bunch of f—ing nerds running the game. You can’t slide into second base. You can’t take out the f—ing catcher because [Buster] Posey was in the wrong position and they are going to change all the rules. You can’t pitch inside anymore. I’d like to knock some of these f—ers on their ass and see how they would do against pitchers in the old days.”

Gossage, 64, is in camp with the New York Yankees to help current players.
