To forgive Mota or not

David Lennon at On the Mets Beat, writes about Guillermo Mota and if the Mets should forgive him for his drug suspension:

Apprently the Mets were impressed by Guillermo Mota's mea culpa last month after it was revealed that he violated MLB's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment program. So much so, in fact, that they brought him back with a two-year, $5 million contract that was finalized Thursday -- even though Mota will be suspended for the first 50 games next season.
"Guillermo took responsibility for his actions and expressed extreme remorse for his mistake," GM Omar Minaya said in a statement. “He handled himself in a stand-up manner."
