John Mozeliak on the Peralta signing: we are not the morality police

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has a story talking about the bit of blowback that has come from the Jhonny Peralta signing. In it are General Manager John Mozeliak’s comments about that blowback. Preach, John:

. . . [Peralta] admitted what he did. He took responsibility for it. At this point in the game there is nothing that says he can’t go play or isn’t free to go sign with some other club. I don’t think it’s the Cardinals’ responsibility necessarily to be the morality police.”

Nope, there are plenty of people doing that. Fans and the media mostly. And their anger over the Peralta signing is every bit as ridiculous as it is counterfactual.
