Now it is Daryl Strawberry's turn to do something stupid.

Gooden and Strawberry are a pathetic waste of space AND talent--Back in the mid 80's I could of sworn I was watching two future HOF'ers and look how it turned out--What a damn waste!

Are the authorities sure it wasn't Darryl Strawberry's wife's uncle?

As much as Strawberry ruined his baseball career, he has cleaned up his life. I'm glad that he has, too bad Gooden hasn't figured it out yet.

Kind of sad to see anyone have this many problems. We can only hope Gooden cleans up his act like Strawberry did.

Some folks never learn. I"m willing to bet Dwight had a rough childhood although I'm pretty sure he was close to his Mom. Something must have happened to him or just got with the wrong crowd. Pretty sad...

Actually Gooden wasn't nearly as bad as Strawberry was. Gooden had a good mom and dad that both took active parts in his life as a youngster. It wasn't until Gooden's late career with the Mets that he got into trouble. Strawberry was always in trouble and still remains so to this day. ESPN Classic just ran a special on these guys.

He must be close with his mom, I understand he relates with women well.
