  • My God Melky, What Were You Thinking?!?

    Melky Cabrera is found to have violated MLB's PED Rules, so he and his team go out and come up with a phoney website that sells some non-existent product which was spiked with testosterone. I mean, jesus. This has the makings of some cheesy B+ movie starring Cuba Gooding Jr that goes straight to DVD.

    Why not just leave it at "I got caught" or "It was something I took and am uncertain of what was in it?" Why make up some elaborate story,which by the way seems like it was quickly discovered as a fake by MLB, and make matters worse?!

    I thought that this ordeal took Melky from a possible 4/$40M deal to a 2/$12M deal to now I have no idea how Melky shows his face again. Now the Cano diss of Melky seems even more appropriate.
    "After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

    Too bad. I really liked him and was happy that he was doing well. Of course he was racking up points on my fantasy team too. It looks like he went of the deep end in his quest to succeed.

      What did Cano say? I saw some pretty supportive comments from most Yankees.

        I guess letting Melky go for nothing doesnt seem TOO awful now.

        still bad mind you.

          New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he was not surprised when he heard that former Yankees Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon failed drug tests and were suspended for 50 games.

          Bans didn't surprise Brian Cashman

          "You see some spike in performance," Cashman said. "You hope it's not the case, but you scratch your head and you wonder at the same time. But then you sit there and get a comfort level: Tests are taking place, so if people are passing their tests............

          Since then, Cabrera has played for the Royals and Giants, transforming himself from a marginal player to an MVP candidate. Even though Cashman likes Cabrera, it made him wonder.

          "When we traded him to Atlanta we had him as a low-end, everyday regular or an excellent fourth outfielder," Cashman said of Cabrera. "And that's how we show where we thought his ceiling was. As you know, he was starting for us in the World Series, but we had him as a low-end, everyday guy, not a National League MVP candidate. So I wasn't surprised."
