Downward spiral for Mota

Posted by disappointmentzone on 1 November 2006

First there was the injury.

Then there was some other stuff, including being traded to the Indians.

Now it’s a 50 game suspension.

It’s almost hard to believe that just a few seasons ago Guillermo Mota was the top set-up man in all of baseball, the guy who pitched the eighth inning during Eric Gange’s save streak with such poise and ability that many teams wanted him as a closer.

Good thing we got rid of him before other members of the bullpen were exposed to the dangers of performance-enhancing drugs…

    Come on. Would you really want to see the entire Cleveland bullpen get suspended for doping? Do you really want to see Jose Jimenez back in a Tribe uniform?

  2. My comment was in reference to members of our bullpen who’ve had minor run-ins in this area before, although after last season we could probably not do worse than completely remaking the bullpen.
