    Goose Gossage Thinks Brian Cashman Is An ***hat

    The New York Yankees are not inviting Goose Gossage to attend spring training this year, and the Hall of Fame closer clearly isn't happy with Brian Cashman.

    The outspoken Gossage blasted Cashman in an expletive-laced rant to the New York Daily News, saying he isn't "a big fan" of the longtime Yankees general manager.

    "Well, with power, is that what happens to you, you turn into a f---ing a--h---," Gossage told the Daily News, in reference to Cashman. "Is that it? I don't know."

    The YES Network was first to report Monday that Gossage, who pitched parts of 22 seasons in the majors and spent seven years with the Yankees, would not be at spring training as a guest instructor this season.

    Gossage, when contacted later Monday by the Daily News, told the newspaper that George Steinbrenner is "rolling over in his grave" and said that the late Yankees owner would have fired Cashman "10 years ago."

    "He would've been gone 10 years ago if George was still around," Gossage said. "He'd have been gone when he jumped out of that f---ing airplane. Do you think he's a good f---ing baseball guy, really? He doesn't believe in f---ing coaching."

    Gossage told the paper that he had a falling out with Cashman during spring training. Gossage said that he asked the GM why their relationship had soured but that Cashman "didn't answer ... he didn't say a word."

    Gossage, 66, has made headlines in recent years for making controversial comments at Yankees spring training. He said last year that it was "insulting" to him to be compared to Mariano Rivera because he pitched multiple innings per outing while Rivera was utilized primarily as a one-inning closer.

    Gossage also ruffled feathers in 2016 when he called former Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista a "f---ing disgrace to the game" and blasted analytics-inclined executives as a "bunch of f---ing nerds running the game."

    Gossage recorded 310 career saves and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2008. He was the closer for the Yankees' World Series-winning team in 1978.
    How bizarre that Cashman doesn't want this guy around his club. My favorite tidbit, without question, is the notion that George Steinbrenner would have fired Cashman in 2008 if Steinbrenner were still alive.

    George Steinbrenner died in 2010.

    Never let facts get in the way of a rant.

    Someone missed their morning arthritis medication and is cranky. Just shut up Gossage. You have no idea what you're talking about.

    I remember being questioned when I defended Price for not wanting this guy near him in Boston. Stuff like this is just the cherry on top.

    Gossage can go on some colorful rants. There’s a recording from the 1970s/80s where he goes off on a reporter and “those stupid mother ****ers in the stands”.

    Well, Cashman is an asshat. Goose is not wrong there. Cashman is an asshat who knows how to do his job really well. Every F.O. in the sports should want asshats like Cashman to run their organizations.
    Screw sabermetics.

    Well, he learned because for a while all he did was throw money at high prices FA and any asshat can do that when you have an unlimited payroll.

    It's the same chip on his shoulder that made him an all-time pitcher, and an obnoxious ex-pitcher.
