Congratulations To The San Francisco Giants For Being The First Team In MLB History To Win A Championship On The Backs Of Two Proven Convicted Drug Users

Wow, that's really impressive. Two separate 50-game suspensions in one year have never happened to the same team, let alone a World Series winner. (Update: I've been corrected, the Giants had a 50-game suspension for one player, and a 100-game suspension for another player.)

You keep on cheating, Giants! That's the Giant Way!

I'm puzzled as to why the media isn't bringing this up more.

MR.F said...

Yup.

Also, who besides Melky?

Steve Sax said...

Mota

Two 50-game suspensions in the same year. I can't recall another team that has even had two.

Steve Sax said...

edited post to drive the point home

Paul said...

Are you saying Melky had an impact? I thought milkmen was just an antiquated city ordnance.

NicJ said...

Mota was a 100 game, second violation.

MR.F said...

Oh, right.

@sosgsosg why is only one writer brave enough to say this? https://www.advertiser-tribune.com/page/blogs.detail/display/1109/Is-This-World-Series-Tainted-.html

Obviously, unless you ignore the steroids and only focus on the feel-goody story of the scrappy Giants, then you hate America.

Dusty Baker said...

I hate America.

This isn't the America I thought I knew.

hateHateHATE!!!

I'm pretty sure MLB has told reporters, "Look, if you want access to players and coaches then no stories about the steroids. It's bad for bizness. Luka Brasi sleeps with the fishes. Capisce?!" Especially after the whole Lance Armstrong thing.

QuadSevens said...

I had no idea about Mota. This is just infuriating!

Love Mota's response to his suspension in '06. Apparently PED baseball players are as trustworthy as politicians.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fuck this right in the earhole.

Wake me up when the universe is done trying to piss me off.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I'm glad this whole thing is over. Can't wait for the 2013 Dodgers to beat the scrap out the Giants.

GO BLUE!!!

I blame Frank McCourt

Franklin Stubbs said...

I blame the dessicated remains of Al Davis.

Franklin Stubbs said...

...and Gary Neville.

Seriously. That guy can eat an ass.

MR.F said...

“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. I feel terrible and I promise this is the first and last time that this will happen.”

If anyone was wondering what the quote was.

I not-so-secretly hope that another key Giants contributor has tested positive for roids during the playoff run and that the public just hasn't been informed of it yet.

BJ Killeen said...

I'm sorry, is there a team other than the Dodgers in California worth talking about? I don't think so...besides, it's time for the big quake to break the state in half and take the lying, cheating, ugly Shitty by the bay outta here forever...

Dusty Baker said...

Prince Fielder just popped out again.

Franklin Stubbs said...

As promised, I didn't watch a single pitch, but I felt the collective Dodger shudder.

Dusty Baker said...

They should re-name Hurricane Sandy after Prince Fielder. Then it wouldn't hit anything.

Neeebs said...

I think Prince should stick to guitar playing/song writing.
