Guillermo Mota was suspended for 50 games for violating MLB’s substance abuse policy, yet came away with a two-year, $5-million contract.
Can you imagine what he might have gotten had he been left-handed? Or not a screw up? Or even pretty good?
It’s the two years that slays me. It’s hard to think anybody else would have given him that. We don’t know, but I would be willing to take that bet.
