So it all comes out... Jose Guillen is a trasher. Not that we didn't already know that, but the prospect of his power at a cheap price seemed like a no-brainer at the time. It didn't end up affecting the Giants and our magnificent World Series run, but it sure was a good thing that MLB told the Giants to leave Guillen off the playoff rosters.
What if Guillen had been Cody Ross instead of the other way around? What if he was the one hitting clutch home runs, then this HGH news came out? The media, already angry that we won, would love to pile on, just like they all did with Barry Bonds.
Anyway, if you haven't read the story, it basically says Guillen had 50 pre-loaded syringes sent to him while a member of the Giants. Absolutely pathetic considering he had been previously suspended for PEDs as a member of the Royals.
As I see it, he got cortisone shots in the neck, and was shooting HGH in his ass. The guy was a walking chemical, and I for one am glad that he was nowhere near our magical roster of "misfits" as they brought home the World Series.
