COOPERSTOWN, NY — During a recent radio interview, Hall of Famer Goose Gossage said Roger Clemens should never make it into the Hall of Fame.
Gossage said Clemens lied about steroid use, labeled him a cheater, and likened him to OJ.
“Are we going to reward these guys for cheating? Even though he was found innocent, it was because of the bad testimony. No one believed McNamee and Pettitte kind of changed his thing, ‘Did I really hear what he told me.’ O.J. Simpson, did you believe he didn’t kill those two people?”
Goose went on to say The Chickenhawk e-mail pen pal, Jose Canseco, is telling the truth: “Canseco is the only guy who has come clean. Like him or not, he is telling the truth. These guys lie, lie, lie and lie. Roger, I think, is in the same boat. I think there is validity to him using and absolutely not do they belong in the Hall of Fame.”
“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.”
