A Word From Our Sponsors


As I'm sure you've already heard

Well, steroids are a funny thing these days.

Guys, obvious users, like Barry Bonds and Jason Giambi, still refuse to own up to using the stuff in public.

Guillermo Mota, your master of serving up two run doubles to tie games in the Mets' playoff run, has been suspended for 50 games under MLB's drug policy.

And I thought it was all the devastating changeup.

In other news, Mota will change his entry music from that song "I like to move it move it" to Afroman's "Because I Got High."

Mota fully owned up to his drug use, releasing a statement saying, "I used extremely poor judgment and deserve to be held accountable, To my teammates and the entire Mets organization, I am sorry. I truly regret what I did and hope that you can forgive me. To baseball fans everywhere, I understand that you are disappointed in me, and I don't blame you," he added. "I feel terrible and I promise this is the first and last time that this will happen."

I guess that should change all of our minds about whether or not it makes sense to resign him.

Speaking of re-signing, though, the Mets are reportedly (according to your New York Daily News) close to a 2-year, $25MM extension with Thomas Michael Glavine. Not too much to complain about there.


In other news:
-Rangers/Ducks, 10 PM out here on the East Coast. I'm gonna pass on this one, I think. If you're giving up four goals to the Kings, including two to Brent Sopel, you probably shouldn't be an NHL team.

-Knicks/Grizz season opener tonight. Your Knicks over/under for wins this season: 33.

-Everyone's talking about Daisuke Matsuzaka. I have a few opinions on this guy, and I'll happily voice them when breaking down the free-agent pitching market.
