Former major league pitcher Dwight Gooden insisted Tuesday that he is fine and healthy despite former teammate?Darryl Strawberrys comments to the New York Daily News earlier this week that Gooden is a complete junkie-addict.?[I] havent done anything wrong, havent broken the law or anything like that, Gooden said during a Facebook Live chat prior to a Steiner Sports autograph function in New York.Gooden was a no-show on Thursday for a joint public appearance with Strawberry, who said he believes?Gooden has relapsed into the drug use that derailed his career.Gooden wasnt specifically asked about Strawberrys comments on Tuesday, but did speak about the toll his mothers failing health and eventual death in July has had on him, saying he needed treatment and medication to deal with depression in the past couple of months.I wasnt healthy; there were ups and downs and [I had] massive depression because I knew my mom was at the end, Gooden said. Once I got through that and got on the medicine, started talking with people who had some of the same experiences, things got better. Things are going a lot better right now.The?New York Yankees, having seen Strawberrys comments to the Daily News, have reached out and offered to assist with any treatment the 51-year-old Gooden might need.?A lot of individuals have reached out to me, too, but for the Yankees to show that type of support to Doc, Im very grateful to them for that, Strawberry told the Daily News.Ron Dock, Goodens former drug counselor, also told the Daily News that the Yankees reached out in an effort to help Gooden, who played for the Yankees and New York Mets during his 16-season career.They said theyre willing to pay for Dwights treatment, which is a huge gesture on their behalf, Dock told the Daily News. Theyve always tried to do right by Dwight, going back to George Steinbrenner when he gave him a chance to play again.The Yankees confirmed Tuesday that theyve reached out through others to offer any necessary services or assistance.Gooden?told the Daily News earlier Tuesday that he wasnt using drugs again and theres a lot more to the story than you think.Strawberry, who along with Gooden was the subject of ESPNs 30 for 30 documentary Doc & Darryl, appeared on ESPNs Outside the Lines on Tuesday and remained steadfast in his belief that Gooden is again using drugs and said he was aware of it dating back to the documentary.We did a 30 for 30 and already knew there he was using, Strawberry told OTL. We covered it up and that and we didnt really open ... My thing is that I just want him to get healthy. He doesnt have to go to my treatment centers. Im not looking for publicity. Just get help. Let someone help you.I let people help me, and I think thats what a lot of times other people that are not addicts dont understand addictions. ... Youve never been in the shoes of an addict and know what an addict is struggling with and how deep the darkness is of this life. And when you look at the paper today and the Daily News of him on the cover, look at it for yourself and see where hes at. Hes 51 years old, man. This guy was a phenomenal pitcher. Yeah, thats over with. But hes a drug addict right now, and he needs help.ESPN Staff Writer Andrew Marchand contributed to this report. Adidas Garth Snow Jersey .Y. - New York City has been selected to host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2015, with the game played at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres. http://www.cheapislandersjerseys.com/ . By having more great seasons. Manning was the only unanimous choice for the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team Friday. Cheap Islanders Jerseys China . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Adidas John Tavares Jersey . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Perry Hills leads the Big Ten in completion percentage and has proven to be invaluable for Maryland as a passer, rusher and senior leader.All of those positives are wasted on Hills, who cant help lamenting the injuries that prevented him from thoroughly enjoying his final season with the Terrapins.Hills has missed two games and was knocked out of two others. Thats his takeaway from a season in which he has thrown 10 touchdown passes and carried Maryland (5-6, 2-6) to the brink of bowl eligibility.Its been pretty rewarding, Hills said Tuesday, but the frustration sets in because you keep saying, `What if? What if?Coming off a season in which he threw 13 interceptions compared to eight TD passes, Hills won the starting job over the summer for first-year coach DJ Durkin. The Terrapins got off to a 4-0 start before Hills hurt his right shoulder in the first half at Penn State.Maryland lost that game, then fell at home to Minnesota with an injured Hills watching from the sideline.Hills returned to beat Michigan State, but two weeks later was injured at Michigan. He started the following week against Ohio State but left in the first quarter with a left shoulder injury.I went in the locker room and said, `Man, God must not want me to play. Im already going through one bad shoulder and hes going to go out and try and give me another, Hills said. It was definitely heart-wrenching. Its like, anything that can go wrong has gone wrong. What on earth?Hills could not recover to face Nebraska last week , and his status for Saturdays home game against Rutgers (2-9, 0-Cool is uncertain.I look for Perry to continue to improve this week, get him back healthy and hopefully go out there and help our senior class go get a win, Durkin said.All five of Marylands victories this season have come with Hills in the starting lineup, whicch says as much about his effectiveness as his 66.dddddddddddd7 percent completion percentage.As goes Hills, so go the Terps. Three other quarterbacks have stepped in during his absence, combining for three TD passes, five interceptions and nary a victory.If Hills had stayed healthy, who knows? Maryland probably would have already sewn up a bowl berth and Hills could look back on his final college season with no remorse.Hes certainly fought through a lot of things, Durkin said. You wish he was healthier throughout the whole year. His year would be way more reflective of the type of player and young man he is. In many ways our team and our season would have reflected that, too.Funny thing is, with the exception of a torn ACL as a freshman, Hills has been impervious to injury at Maryland -- until this year.Its definitely been frustrating, he said. Last year I took a lot more hits and didnt really get injured.On a day Maryland bids farewell to its seniors and seeks to earn a bowl berth, his teammates want Hills in the huddle.I came in with Perry and Ive seen him grow so much over the past five years, offensive lineman Michael Dunn said. Hes been through a lot over that time. To have the opportunity to finish his career off with a win over Rutgers and go to a bowl game, that would be a special moment.Hills heads toward the weekend uncertain exactly when his career will end -- or if hes already taken his last snap in a game situation.Nothings given, he said. So you just have to go out and enjoy every second that you get in practice and workouts. Even though it can be really hard sometimes, Im going to really miss it.---More AP college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25.
