There's a Goose in the Hall

Richard "Goose" Gossage was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame today, and it's about time. Long-considered one of the dominant closers - right up there with Eck, Sutter, and the Great Mariano, Gossage helped propel the Yankees to a World Series title in 1978. One thing about relievers - their failures are memorable also. You can think of George Brett and Kirk Gibson when you think of the Goose.

Finally, Goose Gossage is a Hall of Famer. Unofrtunately, Jim Rice is not, falling 14 votes shy. I don't get why.
