Time For a Change Up? –
July 23, 2019 – The legendary ex-pitcher known as “Doc” — who has been in and out of rehab for years for drug and alcohol addiction — was a mess when he was picked up on Vincent Street near Ferry Street in the Ironbound section around 11:10 p.m., sources said. “He pissed himself. He was clearly buzzed, really kind of f–ked up,” said an Essex County law enforcement source. Still, Gooden, who lives in Piscataway, “was cooperative and polite,” the source said. The source added that Gooden told cops at the scene that he was diabetic. It’s unclear if he actually is, although his late father was diabetic.
