Originally written August 15, 2012 on Lost My Way:
I wonder if he still gets to keep the car. For San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, 2012 has been a career-year. Things changed on Wednesday, however, after Cabrera was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball after failing a drug test. Cabrera tested positive for testosterone which will cause the All-Star to miss the remaining 45 games of the regular season and possibly the first five games of the postseason.
Cabrera was traded from the Kansas City Royals to San Francisco earlier in the season and got off to a blazing start with his new team. In May, Cabrera set a Giants record with 51 hits, passing Hall of Famer Willie Mays in the process. Cabrera is a large reason the National League will have home-field advantage in the World Series, after his two-hit and two-RBI performance that won him MVP honors.
Cabrera, who is a career .284 hitter, was second in baseball with a .346 average and led all of baseball with 159 hits. His career year was a big reason for the Giants staying in the playoff picture as they sit tied at 64-53 with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the lead in the NL West.  
It must be embarrassing, to think just a few weeks ago, Cabrera made a name for himself in front of the world at the All-Star game in Kansas City. Now today, Cabera has once again made a name for himself by cheating himself, fans, and the game of baseball and will now receive proper punishment. 
TL;DR San Francisco Giants outfielder and All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera was suspended 50 games by MLB after testing positive for testosterone.
