Dwight Gooden Speaks Out - Transplanted Ex-Mets Update

I try to post as much ex-Mets news as possible, but I consciously avoided posting comment about the story where Kirk Radomski said he used to take drug tests for Doctor K. Well, call me an apologist, but I am going to take this opportunity to post Dwight Gooden's response in the New York Post:

“That never happened,” Gooden said. “I don’t know what he’s talking about. I’ve made mistakes through the years, and I’ve admitted them, but that never happened. And the way the tests were administered, it couldn’t have happened. I’ve done enough wrong on my own, I don’t want to get blamed for something I didn’t do.”

Well, I didn't belive iota of Roger Clemens' denials, but he had a lot more to lose than Dwight Gooden. Gooden has already lost pretty much everything - he has no reason to lie about things that happened 20 years ago, best as I can figure. So, call me naive, I'm going to take him at his word for this one.
