At first, Guillermo Mota said the right things. He was happy to be back and grateful for the support of his teammates. It wasn’t a feel good story to begin with, but it went downhill fast.
I didn’t care for a lot of the questions. I don’t care how Mota feels now. I don’t care how he felt watching his team play without him.
What I cared about was why he did it. Why would a guy with a supposed fastball like his cheat? He knew wrong from right, so why did he give to temptation?
His weak response: “I made my statement. I just want to play baseball.”
Is that so? I really don’t care what Mota wants. Until he, and anybody else guilty of using answers why, then nothing they have to say is of any interest to me. If Mota gives it up, the appropriate question should be: Could you have gotten him out if you were using steroids?
