Matt Herges, having been signed to a minor league contract, could provide good depth to the front end of the Colorado Rockies bullpen. In a past Counting Rocks (plugplugplug) I pointed out the upsides to having Herges around in the pen.
However, it has been mentioned by a couple of posters that his connection to the Mitchell Report makes him the kind of character that we don't want around. A PED user isn't welcome in the Colorado Rockies organization, at least not on the playing field.
My opinion is simply that it's water under the bridge. He's never failed a test, he's not suspended, so I don't care what he did in the past (in terms of bad behavior, etc), and he should be able to help the team win now.
What is your opinion?
Despite the fact that he's signed already, should Herges be a part of the Rockies clubhouse considering his name on the Mitchell Report and connection to PEDs?
