Giants cancel Cabrera T-shirts

The San Francisco Giants canceled an order for 20,000 Melky Cabrera T-shirts just in time.

The shirts that had featured last month's All-Star game MVP have been replaced...

Suspended Giants player Melky Cabrera accused of drug-use coverup

The site was posted as a way to convince MLB that Cabrera took this...

This Melky Cabrera Story Just Keeps Getting More Amazing

It isn't the worst Judge Smails impression that I've ever seen.  But I've seen better. Last week, Giants OF and All Star Game MVP Melky Cabrera got popped for failing a drug test and earned a hearty 50 game suspension for it. This is a huge blow for the playoff contenders as the Melk Man was putting up an MVP-caliber season. There is a huge taint bomb on that season...

Crying Over Spilt Leche: Aspects of the Post-Melky Era

Everyone in baseball seems to agree that the San Francisco Giants dodged a big bullet when suspended hitting star Melky Cabrera's agents turned down the Giant's overtures for a mid-season contract extension last July. CBSSports.com reported the Giants were poking around the 3 year $27 million range.With the mega-offensive season Cabrera was putting up, I couldn't imagine...

Fantasy Baseball: Examining Values of PED Players

As Melky Cabrera has reminded us, we can’t believe that everything we see on the baseball diamond is legit. As a fan of the game, it’s extremely frustrating, I know. If you’re a fan of the American League team that wins the pennant, I wouldn’t blame you if your anger doesn’t come out until October, as the All-Star Game MVP had a lot to do with the National...

Baseball's PED Climate Makes It Hard to Believe Players Enjoying Breakout Seasons Always Doing It Clean (Video)

In light of Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon testing positive for performance-enhacing drugs, it's tough for baseball fans to not think the worst of any players enjoying suspicious amounts of success this season. Not every player deserves to be believed guilty until proven innocent, but unfortunately, that's a reality that many will have to face as the positive tests continue...

Giants moving on quickly, winning

Outside the Polo Grounds Pub and Grill, in the shadow of AT&T Park, the sign reads, "No More Melk, but Plenty of Beer." Inside the San Francisco Giants' clubhouse, the mood isn't quite that frivolous. But what did you expect the Giants to do after losing Melky Cabrera to a 50-game suspension, quit? The Giants don't operate like that. Baseball doesn'...

Angels-Tigers Preview

Both Detroit and Los Angeles received a bit of a scare in the last few days as Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols were forced out of games with injuries.

Cabrera left Thursday's 3-2, 11-inning win over Toronto in the...

Putting the “Legitimate” in Legitimately Dumb

What would MLB do if it turned out that Melky Cabrera was “legitimately” using PEDs?  For the same matter, what if Barry Bonds came out and told us that he had been using the “cream” and the “clear” but it was legitimate so we didn’t need to worry about it?  I’m pretty sure that the fans and MLB would call bullsh*t on both of them. By now I’m pretty sure you know...
