The word is that Guillermo Mota is on a plane to join the Giants in Houston. I mean, he might not actually be on the plane anymore, because Houston’s pretty close, but the point is: he’s a-coming back. Yep.
I’m pretty ambiguous on this front. I don’t have a problem with them bringing him back post-PEDs. I don’t think it’ll solve any problems, but I’m not against it, either. Still, I am a little disturbed by their claim (which MLB officially agrees with) that they believe his whole daughter’s-cough-syrup defense. Granted, the specifics of the case aren’t public and there may have been really overwhelming evidence, but still… I have a hard time believing it. By “Hard time” I mean, “Who am I kidding, I don’t believe it at all.”
What I am wondering, though, is what else I could get the Giant to believe. This could be fun! Say hello the Gullible Giants. Here are a few other things they believe:
The cough syrup defense is looking increasingly plausible, actually.
