Mota resigns with Mets

At, writes about the Mets and Guillermo Mota:

Late Thursday, the Mets agreed to a $5 million, two-year contract with reliever Guillermo Mota, who was acquired from Cleveland in August. Mota tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance and will miss the first 50 games of next season.

"Guillermo took responsibility for his actions and expressed extreme remorse for his mistake," Minaya said. "He handled himself in a stand-up manner."

Mota will make $1.8 million in 2007, but will lose about a third of it while serving the suspension. He will get $3.2 million in 2008.
