Bryce Harper: “Baseball Is A Tired Sport Because You Can’t Express Yourself”
Former Yankees Pitcher Goose Gossage: “Bautista Is A Fu*king Disgrace To The Game”
Not sure what’s in the water but former players are coming out of the woodwork to criticize the new generation players. First, a bunch of former NBA players started ripping into Stephen Curry and the Warriors. Now, Former Yankees Pitcher Goose Gossage has joined the ‘Back in my day’ crew with his criticism of Toronto Blue Jays RF Jose Bautista.
Gossage was a not a fan of Bautista’s infamous Bat flip in last years playoffs and let that be known while Speaking to ESPN.com’s Andrew Marchand:
“Bautista is a f—ing disgrace to the game,” Gossage told ESPN. “He’s embarrassing to all the Latin players, whoever played before him. Throwing his bat and acting like a fool, like all those guys in Toronto. [Yoenis] Cespedes, same thing.”
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.
Jose bautista took to Twitter to show he is not bothered by the criticism:
