"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 [expletive] they went and they thought they figured the [expletive] game out. They don’t know [expletive]."
And the bat-flipping epidemic also didn’t sit well with Gossage.
"Bautista is a [expletive] disgrace to the game," Gossage said last week. "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."
But that just won’t do for the Hall of Fame reliever.
In an attempt to clarify his message, Gossage, who is a guest instructor of the Yankees, actually double-down on his belief that baseball is not what it used to be. But this time, he added Cam Newton’s name to the rant.
"It’s a shame, it breaks my heart to see the direction this game is going," Gossage told the New York Post on Tuesday. "What, do we want a bunch of Cam Newtons running around?"
Of course Gossage was referencing Cam’s penchant for dancing on the field.
