The San Francisco Giants lose long-relief man Guillermo Mota to a 100-game suspension. Mota has tested positive for Clenbuterol, but swears it was children’s cough medicine. Mota’s agent Adam Katz has said they will appeal the suspension. If you’re wondering why he’s suspended so many games, it’s because Mota was suspended on November 1, 2006 for using performance-enhancing drugs. That was a 50-game suspension. Huff Is Back The Giants needed to make a move to activate Aubrey Huff, and the Mota suspension fixed that problem. Huff took Mota’s roster spot. He’s is returning from a 15-day DL trip due to anxiety. Snapped Hit Streak Angel Pagan had his 20-game hitting streak snapped last night. It was an  0-for-5 night for Pagan, against the Dodgers. The good news is it’s still early in the season, so Pagan can start a new one tonight! Next Two In LA Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 2.63) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (0-2, 3.42)Chad Billingsley (2-2, 3.19) vs. Tim Lincecum (2-2, 5.68) ~King of Cali (Steven) ———-
