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, OBVZ, but if you thought that this story was just going to go away and stop being entertaining, boy were you mistaken.
Melky admitted right away that he got caught red-handed with having his blood replaced by testosterone. He apologized for it immediately and idiots everywhere chimed in with the very DERP-y, “he’s only saying that because he got caught and I’m handicapped for thinking this way”. Yep, dude got nailed for cheating. Now he has to pay the hefty price. I’m guessing that if he had to do it all over again, he wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve always liked Melky even when he ballooned up to 600 poun...

Melky Cabrera is currently serving his 50-game suspension for violating MLB's drug policy. Are the Giants completely done with him?
Major League Baseball has banned Melky Cabrera associate Juan Nunez from all team clubhouses.
MLB executive vice president Rob Manfred notified teams of the action Tuesday in a memorandum to club presidents, chief executive officers and general managers.
Nunez, a consultant for Cabrera's agents, took responsibility for fabricating a website that the San Francisco Giants All...
The San Francisco Giants canceled an order for 20,000 Melky Cabrera T-shirts just in time.
Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter says the order was stopped just before printing after Cabrera received a 50-game suspension from Major League Baseball last Wednesday following a positive test of testosterone.
The shirts that had featured last month's All-Star game MVP have been replaced...
San Francisco Giants left fielder Melky Cabrera has apparently been caught trying to cover up his use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) by purchasing a phony website. Reports out of New York said that an assistant to Cabrera recently bought an internet site which is used to promote and advertise a fake product. The site was posted as a way to convince MLB that Cabrera took this...
What is a “conundrum”? Well, according to the dictionary, a conundrum is ”a confusing and difficult problem or question”. Well, the recent suspension of Melky Cabrera has put me in a “conundrum”.
Who is Melky Cabrera you may ask ? Well, Melky Cabrera is a baseball player. He is a San Francisco Giant and was the 2012 All-Star Game MVP. And, in case you have not heard lately...
Since Melky Cabrera was suspended for elevated levels of testosterone, and even prior as part of Ryan Braun having come up positive for the same, discussions have swirled about the process by which players are tested. Recently, Victor Conte, the former head of BALCO has been just one.
Today the league and union for the players struck back issuing a joint statement on how testing...
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...
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'...
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...
Victor Conte not withstanding, the two recent positive tests and subsequent 50 game suspensions of Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon show that the MLB drug testing policy is, more or less, working. Though improvements must continue to be made to make the tests unbeatable, it is clear that the testing net as currently constructed is able to catch at least some offenders.
It was another great show for Around the Diamond 25 Monday night as Tony and Adam wrapped up another rather exciting week in the world of baseball.

Ryan Dempster and Derek Holland’s awesome Harry Caray impression.
