1. GM of the red sox..
Getting rid of 4 all stars..
Beckett, Crawford AND Gonzalez..
We have a ton of money..
I wonder, slash the payroll,
with consistently sold out stadiums, receive more profits?
Maybe I missing something, but I just dont get this..
2. Bobby valentine..
Piss off youkilis.. CHECK..
Piss off Pedroia.. CHECK..
pISS OFF the entire red sox clubhouse on July 26th.. CHECK:)
Valentine has no skills when it comes to dealing with people..
VALENTINE IS THE CLUBHOUSE CANCER..
Enjoy your last 5 weeks as a baseball manager, Bobby..
Cause you are DONE!
3. Lance Armstrong..
Stripped of SEVEN freakin Tour de France TITLES..
Thats got to hurt..
And then his father, Neil Armstrong, dude that landed on the moon, died today:(
4. Philies.. a strifiling disappointing, hey? hey?
5. Sanchez is in alot of trouble..
I know its just pre-season..
But this guy is already pushing the panic button, on HIMSELF..
Dude will get replaced by Teblow, by the 3rd game..
I love Sanchez.. He could very well be the next eli manning..
A guy that kind of sucks 45% of the time, but can win 3 measly games in a row..

1. Lance Armstrong
Moving one ball up the list. Yeah I'd say is summer isn't turning out the best.
2. Melky Cabrera
Busted for PED's at the worst possible time for SF. Add in his fake website and phony story and he comes off as a major tool. He needs to be on this list for sure.
3. Jon Jones
Is the #1 reason why a UFC event was canceled for the 1st time in 11 years. After Henderson pulled out of the fight due to injury the UFC offered Jones a fight with Sonnen, a fighter from a lower weight class and a fighter who was not even training. Jones turned the fight down and 3 days before he was quoted as saying, "I'd fight Sonnen in a heart beat." The event was canceled screwing the fighters on the rest of the card who were training for months and the fans who had their airplane and hotels booked. What a bum.
4. Chad Johnson
Not sure if he really beat up his wife or not but either way his career is in doubt now. You cannot put yourself in that situation when you know you have 1 strike left.
5. The Red Sox
I can't just include Valentine or Cherington. The entire organization is a joke right now. The players are babies and the ownership group are enablers.

I will name a couple of other goats..
6. Bartolo Colon..
The fattest guy ever to be busted with steroids:)
What? Was he putting the Juice in his cheesecake?
Damn shame, he was actually having a decent year..
Losing Robin Van Persie, one of the best strikers in the world.. To Man United, their bitter rival, no less.. As an Arsenal fan, the writing is on the wall.. The owners just dont want to win trophies.. At this level, you have got to get the big names, and that means opening up the cheque book..
And what makes it hurt even more is we only got $24 million.. Had we sold him a year before this season, we would have got around double.. I wont lie, my passion for the Gunners this season is low, theres just not alot of reasons to get excited..
8. The MIGHTY Brazilian olympic soccer team..
Losing to Mexico and settaling for silver..
The Brazilians only looked good in the last 5 minutes of that match..
If you only play well for 5 minutes, then you dont deserve to win..
9. American pitching during the LLWS..
Guess in 10 years time, we are going to have some awesome batters and horrendous pitching

I didn't realize we were still listing. Ok, I'll throw a few more out there.
6. Kenny Britt
Arrested for DUI in July after already being arrested multiple times in the past. Obviously this guy just doesn't get it.
How can we leave this guy off the list? Tyrann Mathieu. The Honeybadger. Thrown off LSU for being a bonehead. STOP doing drugs. You are wasting your god given talent.
8. LA Angels.
They went out and spent a ton of money, and guess what, they are fading at the worst possible time. 3rd place and 4 games out of the Wild Card. Not good.
I want to go back to your first selection for a moment. Ben Cherington? Really? The guy has been on the job less than 1 season and has had to deal with what Theo Epstien left behind. He goes out and cleans up the mess Epstein left by trading away Beckett, Crawford, and Gonzalez, and freeing up over $200 million and you think thats a bad move?
This team is a total disgrace and Cherington made the 1st move in many to fix the problems. He cleared the bad contracts of Beckett and Crawford away with 1 move. I say hooray Ben, great job. And he shouldn't be on any goat list at all.

Sorry GROWN up!
I dont think DUI's are that big of a deal..
I mean, yeah, if you killed someone with your car cause you got soooo hammered, cause you were trying to pick up enough dutch courage, to pick up enough scratch on the side, doing some gay ****.. Ok, fine, gave that guy a DUI, kind of sounds like he deserves it..
If its about a single guy, going to a bar, and getting hammered cause alot of pretty girls are kind of mean, and he wants to take the edge off of the situation..
I mean, what do you want him to do?
Sit at home and think about the love train all day?
In Europe, we have about 10% of cops, compared to the states..
All of my english friends have had no DUIs..
All of my florida friends have had DUI's..
You can be angry and point the finger..
But when you look at the statistics, its really not that surprising, with all the DUIs..
Heck, their is even a TV show based on cops busting drunks for DUIs..
YOU, YEAH YOU GROWN UP.. CAN PUT KENNY BRITT ON TRIAL..
BUT IM GOING TO PUT THE SYSTEM ON TRIAL!!!!!
NOW WHERE YOU GOING TO GO, UH?
JimJ77 Can't make it up said 08/27, 07:31 PM
Can someone please translate this for me?
DUI's are slightly serious bro, you know, especially cause you can kill someone. So Kenny Britt is a total moron for drinking and driving but what makes him a goat is that he's going to be suspended for it which is ultimately going to negatively affect his team.
Some of the weird inclusions on your list. Ben Cherington? The guy who just made a fabulous trade? Dumb inclusion.
Mark Sanchez? I'm not a big Mark Sanchez fan but he's a goat based on what exactly? Can we maybe wait until the season starts and you can include him on your Fall goat list then?
US little league team? You're putting 12 year olds on a goat list but you're OK with drunk drivers?
Bobby Valentine? For what? Dealing with a bunch of self entitled brats? Why don't we pin the blame on the players this time and not the manager. The manager doesn't give up homeruns, strikeout, hit into double plays and play like complete crap. I actually feel bad for Valentine because he's had to deal with the A holes he's dealt with this season.
Nice attempt but my list has the true goats on it.
