NBA Pick 'Em has been delayed this week. A message board I run for my Minecraft programming book was hit with 230,000 spams in one week.

Bautista's response after he heard what was said about him:

"He's a great ambassador for the game," Bautista told ESPN after being told of Gossage's comments. "I don't agree with him. I'm disappointed that he made those comments, but I'm not going to get into it with him. I would never say anything about him, no matter what he said about me. I have too much good stuff to worry about his comments. Today' is my first game [of the spring,] getting ready for a new season, hopefully, we will whoop some more ass."

So, who exactly is a disgrace to the game?

Also, here is the physical newspaper copy of what Gossage said:

Speaking of the tirade, a friend of mine posted this on Facebook today:

Finds by far the most interesting comment made by Goose Gossage in his now-infamous tirade on ESPN Radio yesterday, where he used the f-word 27 times, was when he was asked who has created the problem in baseball. "The people running it," he says. Interviewer asks, "Who's running it?" Goose replies, "A Jew." Amazing NY Post left that comment out today.

Is that true? Did Gossage really go there?
