"I don't think it's the Cardinals responsibility necessarily to be the moral police..."

After some blow-back from the Jhonny Peralta deal, the Cardinals General Manager issued the following statement:

One of the things we looked at when acquiring a shortstop was the amount of acquisition cost. The shortstop market was one that was not deep in free agents. For us it was really focusing on someone who could hit from the right side, someone who was a steady defensive player, someone who had experience and could fit right in.

Character and makeup are something we weigh into our decision-making. In his case, he admitted what he did, he took responsibility for it. I feel like he has paid for his mistakes, and obviously if he were to make another one, then it would be a huge disappointment.

I think Major League Baseball has done a great job trying to clean up this game, and I feel like they've taken great steps.

I don't think it's the Cardinals responsibility necessarily to be the moral police on potentially future employment.

Or something like that.

Personally, I am not sure Mo owed anyone an explanation on the signing, but here it is.
