Melky Cabrera suspended 50 games

The PED Melk-Man will have more time to work on his #######’ Camaro.

San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera has been suspended 50 games after violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Cabrera, the MVP of the 2012 All-Star Game, tested positive for testosterone. His suspension is effective immediately.

Cabrera has the second-best batting average in the National League at .346, behind Andrew McCutchen’s .359. The Giants (64-53) are tied for the NL West lead with the Dodgers.

Yeah, but the thing to remember is Brewers were in San Francisco over the Cinco de Mayo weekend, which in San Francisco is kinda like what Saint Patricks Day is back east. That is, everyone drinks way, way more than they should and civility tends to go out the window. The fact that May 5th was a Saturday may have led to some going more overboard than they would normally.

I'm not saying that Braun didn't have an especially miserable visit to San Francisco or that the jeers were justified. But I think that the intensity, to some degree, was greater for reasons that had absolutely nothing to do with Braun.

In fairness, St. Patricks Day in SF is also just as bad, or good depending on your viewpoint. As for me, my wife and I prefer to drink away from the crowd. We get to know our bartenders a lot better that way.

Oh yea, and FU Melky!

Or put another way, some powerlifters also use AAS. They definitely do not have the paper thin skin, and the muscle definition of pro bodybuilders. Because they're not dieting, and certainly are not restricting water consumption.


Totally depends on what weightclass you're talking about. Heavyweight powerlifters are not lean, but many lower weight class lifters are quite lean. And most do dehydrate to make weight.

I don't drink on St. Patrick's day. It's amateur hour.

See I have the opposite view. The opening of the pro circuit just ruined drinking for me. Oh for the days when people drank out of pure love for it rather than the endorsements.

Yeah, but with the IOC's refusal to give drinking the Olympic spotlight it deserves, what was the alternative? I'm sure the days when an amateur could compete in the 500 ml Vodka Freestyle were fun, but times move on.

I was always more a fan of the breaststroke...
