Every year during spring training, on cue, Baseball Hall of Famer Goose Gossage manages to tear into the state of the game with his oft incendiary statements that rile up the majority of baseball fans. 

Gossage adheres to the "get off my lawn" attitude. He is the embodiment of the "Old Man Yells At Cloud" meme from "The Simpsons." 

And in 2020, the former right-handed pitcher took it upon himself to make a political comparison, likening MLB to the DNC. 

"These (stat-driven) workouts are all eyewash. It’s a bunch of (expletive)," Gossage told the Tampa Bay Times by phone. "It’s like the Democrats are running baseball." 

The rest is typical Gossage: "I don't even recognize this game that they're playing. I really don't. You get paid all this money for doing less, doing half.

"If I pitched today, they wouldn't sniff a ball." 

Gossage, 68, was a nine-time All-Star and won the 1978 World Series with the New York Yankees. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2008.
