Hearing Goose Gossage complain about how baseball has changed is simply clockwork. If the sun rises each day, Gossage has some venom to spew about analytics or players celebrating.

In fact, Gossage might actually have a problem with the sun rising because of its "launch angle."

The Hall of Famer has made his grievances known the last couple seasons, but he has been in the small majority with his gripes. Now, he's back with his takes on home runs in 2019.

Gossage has a beef with the increased rate baseballs are flying out of the park. He claims it is "unwatchable" and the strategy of the game is being stripped away. Gossage seemingly cannot stand watching this type of baseball after playing over 20 years in a totally different era.

During his last year in the big leagues in 1994, 3,306 home runs were hit and this season the MLB is on pace to come close to doubling that total. The game has completely shifted over the last 40-50 years.

Gossage has been the real life version of "Old Man Yells at Cloud." From Bryce Harper to Brian Cashman, his hate-filled takes have alienated himself from the game. His only use now is for rants against baseball and the annual appearance at Cooperstown.
