Say Hello to the Gullible Giants!

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.

    I don’t buy it, either. John Shea recently wrote in the Chron that the Giants are probably perceived as PED central, but, it is not like you can blame team management. I think you can, in the sense that there are some things they could do to make clear that PED use is unacceptable. First thing would be to release Mota. Second would be to announce they want no part of Melky after he serves his suspension. Third would be to stop treating Barry Bonds as a returning hero when he arrives at the ballpark.

      I agree. And if they were taking that stance, I would say they should release Mota. However, with the way they treat Bonds etc., I think it would more be singling Mota out unfairly. For the moment, in many ways, the tolerate it and that is what it is.
