Ha..fake ring. :-D I like that. However I think he will get, and deserves a real one, he was a major contributor to the Giants for 113 games.

So what you're saying is that Melky is not as good at creating fake websites as Mota is at convincing people he drinks children's cough medicine :-D

I'm saying that from what I've heard the mlb corroborated his story (clenbuterol is what he tested positive for and that is not a steroid) whereas we know melky used a "PED".

It's not a steroid but it's a banned PED with horrible side effects. So how is it more acceptable than steroids?

"The World Anti-Doping Agency and the International Olympic Committee include clenbuterol on their lists of performance-enhancing drugs, and prohibit athletes from using it. Many athletes continue using clenbuterol to burn fat, build muscle and improve sports performance."

He just really likes the taste of children's cough medicine, I guess. So much that he's willing to get suspended every few seasons. I don't blame him. If I got busted for it I'd make up an excuse too, hoping to get off the hook.

"Oh come on, you didn't find MUCH of it in my system! I just had a big swig of my daughter's cough medicine the day before the piss test. It couldn't possibly be trace amounts left-over from an injection I had last month"

This was Mota's second time. First time I might buy the argument but after that either watch everything you take or you are probably using. Maybe he is just really unlucky but I don't see it happening. Most of baseball doesn't seems to be having a problem watching what they are ingesting.
