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 League’s victory, even if Melky wasn’t doing any of the pitching.
But, this is a fantasy site. If you want my opinions on this stuff, feel free to contact me in any way you know how and I promise you, you’ll get them. Right here, right now, we have to view this kind of thing from a fantasy perspective. No, not potential replacements for Cabrera, not again anyway. But five games into the 2013 season (or even less if the Giants make the playoffs), Melky will be back in uniform for some team. PED’s or not, he was leading the league in hits and batting .346, so I’m guessing he’ll not only begin the year as a starter...

Melky Cabrera is currently serving his 50-game suspension for violating MLB's drug policy. Are the Giants completely done with him?
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...
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'...
More bad news for Bay Area baseball fans. A second player has tested positive for a banned substance. This time it’s Oakland A’s pitcher Bartolo Colonhas. Much like Melky Cabrera, he’s subject to a 50 game suspension by the MLB. Colon underwent PRP treatments in 2011 and similar to a few other players who underwent [...]
BOSTON -- David Ortiz is a believer in Major League Baseball's drug testing system. Despite San Francisco's Melky Cabrera and Oakland's Bartolo Colon both getting suspended for testosterone use in recent days, Ortiz thinks MLB's ability to catch the offenders is a testament to the program's success. "Our drug program is legit," Ortiz said. "You...
Earlier this week Oakland A’s pitcher Bartolo Colon became the second big league player in a matter of days, joining Melky Cabrera of the San Francisco Giants, to violate MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Both tested positive for testosterone and each received a 50-game suspension. Since 2005 there have been 599 [...]
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...
With the 50 game suspension of Giants OF Melky Cabrera for PEDs, BALCO founder Victor Conte believes there’s many more players still involved with doping in Major League Baseball.
In this episode of The Majors LIVE, Adam, Josh and Nick discuss whether or not baseball still has a big steroid problem along with the following:

Bartolo Colon’s major league career was on a roll. From 1998 through 2005 he won 135 games, leading the league in 2005 with a 21-8 record and 3.49ERA. Then it all came to a crashing halt. The man who averaged 17 wins per season for eight years managed a total of 17 wins over the next few seasons, including an erratic stint with the Red Sox in 2008. He disappeared from the MLB...

Sutcliffe has a point here.. Melky Cabrera is in the United States on a working visa and broke the law. I mean it can’t be anymore black and white than that can it?

The answer is flat out “No”. The best part is – I could have told you without testing that Bartolo Colon was doing something. It’s really fuggin’ ridiculous. Is Major League Baseball that stupid? Even Melky Cabrera – the guy was one at-bat away from being out of the league and suddenly he’s an All-Star....
How are we supposed believe anything anymore?
Performance enhancing drugs have seemingly taken over everything that is special in sports.
Melky Cabrera was suspended 50 games today because he tested positive for testosterone. Out of nowhere, the Melk Man had transformed himself into one of the game’s best players over the past couple of years. He currently leads the MLB in batting...
