Tony the Gwynn interviewed

Tony Gwynn was on the Worst Sports Show Period last night (video):  

  • Tony Gwynn thinks Mark McGwire belongs in the hall of fame.  It seems that he's pretty sure Big Mac used 'roids too.  I can't really follow his logic.
    If I had a vote I'd say Mark McGwire was a Hall of Famer.  That [Mark McGwire's testimony in Congress] doesn't bother me.  It doesn't bother me at all because I think he was a worthy candidate before.  You look at the home run totals and people are going to say that every home run that he hit he might have been using some illegal substance.  I'm not one that believes that...  The steroid era is in stone now. You can't change the numbers they've already been posted.
  • The toughest pitcher that Gwynn faced was Omar Oliveras
  • He's proud of Anthony Gwynn Jr. for making it to the majors in the Brewers organization.  Anthony Gwynn's favorite athlete is Deion Sanders?  Deion is a prick. It kind of makes sense because Gwynn seems to love Barry Bonds.
  • A secret source tells me that Gwynn will be signing autographs on the concourse at today's Padres game from 11:45 to 12:30pm.  Get in line early.
