Top Ten Tuesdays (Delayed Due to HACKERS!): Criminals Shriminals
Thursday, December 20, 2007
First of all, yeah, I KNOW it's not Tuesday, but as I explained earlier, this blog did not exist on Tuesday, so let's pretend it's Tuesday and enjoy a little Top Ten action! Today's topic celebrates the joy and hilarity that is baseball arrests - and much to our collective enjoyment, there is no shortness of criminals in the MLB!

Top Ten Baseball Degenerates

10) Bondzilla: Juice and lying about it
9) Pete Rose: Gambling (obv), tax evasion
8) Jose Canseco: Steroids, domestic abuse, battery in a nightclub (teamed up with his brother for that feat - family bonding!)
7) Sidney Ponson: Assaulted an Aruban judge, DUIs (that's plural) and subsequent jail time.
6) Doc Gooden: DWI, driving with a suspended license, punched his girlfriend in 2005, violating probation - and, of course, a lotta drugs.
5) Hank Thompson: Jewel theft at age 12, armed robbery, charged with murder (later dismissed as "justifiable homicide"), larceny, assault.
4) Carl Everett: Child abuse (along with his wife), lots of altercations with umpires, homophobe, believer in the bible and honestly does not think dinosaurs existed.
3) Darryl Strawberry: Domestic abuse (several times), illegitimate children, tax evasion, coke, failed to make child support payments, driving while under the influence of painkillers, filed a false report claiming his car was stolen... when really he had just misplaced it.
2) Denny McLain: Failed to pay off a bet and had his foot stomped on by some mob members; later imprisoned for drug trafficking, racketeering, and embezzlement with Anthony Spilotro and John Gotti Jr.
1) Ugueth Urbina: Convicted of attempted murder charges and was sentenced to 14 years in prison stemming from a 2005 incident in Venezuela.

    You forgot Vince Coleman throwing a firecracker in a kid's face :)

    Plenty of olde tyme base ball players did some horrible things too, but I like keeping this list a bit more modern.

    If Roger ends up being guilty, he will be joining the list.

    I think you hit the nail on the head with Uggie being number 1

    Great list. I'm glad to see you're up and running again. You're one of my favorite blogs that I read on here.

    I do have you linked from mine.

    Johnny Pap-smear's dog seems to take after his owners like for balls! WTF's with the sox? They can't even keep hold of their own history.

    Glad to see you're back YC, I thought for a moment that my workplace had blocked your site, adding to the HUGE list of internet sites we can't access. I guess they want us to do some work or something....

    No Idea of U.U. guilt or innocence but I wouldn't trust the legal system in Venezuela. Oh wait your one of those liberals, you know like Hugo Chavez is good guy huh? I'm backing slowly out of the room crazy lady.

    I think I have a bit of a softer spot towards Straw and Doc Gooden than you do. They both have made several attempts to restart their lives on the right foot.

    no Albert Belle?

    Reading the Bible makes you a degenerate? Not believing in dinosaurs too?

    Mantle was a drunk. Ruth was a womanizer, Ty Cobb was a scumbag, so on and so on. This list was kind of pointless Maureen.

    I know you have much better things to write about than this.

    No Roger, Bondzilla #1 because he's a liar. Clemens is an angel, right, got it. Now try again without being a racist cunt.

     
  • At 1:09 PM, Blogger Yankees Chick said…

    um...

    big shock. the person that calls me names posts as anonymous! classy... and brave...

    and hating on barry bonds is not racist. hate for him can be shared by everyone.
