Regarding Mota's recent 100 game suspension:

"In a statement issued through Adam Katz, Mota's agent, the right-hander claims that children's cough medicine was responsible for the banned substance (clenbuterol) that was found in his system." From MLBTR

So, I'm just wondering, does anyone buy this? I don't know about you, but I don't know any adult who takes children's cough medicine, and I can't think of any reason why you would. A cocktail perhaps? Is there some recipe for a Flaming Homer out there that I don't know about?

I have heard of people taking children's cough syrup as a sleep aid

And I have also heard of people using it to get high.

And I believe I have even, on rare occasions, heard of people using it to treat coughs in children. There's no telling what crazy things some people will do.

No, seriously, there's a lot of people out there for whom cough syrup is their drug of choice. Jamarcus Russel had trouble with the law over it. I think its plausible

Usually the ones using it for abuse are doing it for the DXM which causes dissociative hallucination. They avoid any type that has other active ingredients because they can cause complications and have serious side effects when abused. Mota's defense isn't going to work anyway though because per the terms of the MLB drug enforcement policy a player is responsible for being aware of the ingredients in anything they take. Any medications that contain banned substances must be approved by MLB.

Moving to the MLB forum.

And, no. I don't buy it. At least not as an accident.

Yeah, but no one really bought Ryan Braun's "excuse" either.

This is the first thing I thought of lol. http://en.wikipedia....ki/Purple_drank But, I don't think Children's cough syrup has codeine in it.

This reminds me of that South Park episode where they boys are trying do a news show but keep losing in ratings to a Dogs with a fish-eye lens show. Maye Mota just wanted to get creative and took too much.
