BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Mike Gosling’s walk rates and mediocre results against lefties make any kind of LOOGY work impossible, dooming him to the same future as the great auk, the moa, and the newspaper.
2007 Mike Gosling is a lefty, and that`s usually enough to encourage people to take a gander.
2005 Lefty, but not, contrary to what some might believe, a lefty version of Mike Mussina. Gosling's highly regarded by scouts, and there's no shortage of praise out there for him, but does his performance justify it? He gives up a ton of hits, his K rate's absolutely generic, and there's nothing about his performance to date that indicates that he's going to be a particularly successful pitcher in the majors, much less a star. He'll get a look in spring training, with Johnson likely leaving town.
