...if we start doing entries again about the Mets players we hate, can I pick Guillermo Mota?
It was exactly a year ago that Mota made his debut, and his steroid-addled arm threw a scoreless inning in a classic that almost made me break my iPod at Shea. Tonight the Mets would have won, except for Mota. Simply put, he needs to DFA'd as soon as possible. He is the Mel Rojas of this team, and must be replaced for the stretch run.
Or he needs to get back on the juice ASAP.
On the plus side, this almost-comeback made me feel good about the team again. Three in season pickups--Marlon Anderson, Jeff Conine and Luis Castillo--gave this team a spark in that bottom of the 9th, that certain something that had been missing for a long time. I have hope, thank goodness.
Again, if Mets management is reading this, No Mota = Steve happy.
