222 wins and now 210 losses.
A federal judge in Madison has sentenced a former New York Mets star pitcher to six months in prison for not paying his taxes.
Prosecutors say Jerry Koosman, a former all-star who helped the Mets win the 1969 World Series, didn’t pay federal income taxes for 2002, 2003 and 2004, costing the government as much as $90,000.
According to IRS agents, the 66-year-old Koosman, of Osceola, told them he had researched tax laws and concluded they applied only to federal workers, corporate employees and District of Columbia residents.
Based on the strength of that defense, it sounds like he didn’t have his best stuff working.
Can we get a third “former Met making himself look like a jackass in federal court” story today? Has anyone seen Doc Gooden?
