    Melky Cabrera Suspended 50 Games

    Tested positive for Testosterone. Huge blow for the G Men.

    Cheating dogs out in the Bay Area. What a shocker. To be fair, I am sure there are cheating dogs everywhere.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    You gotta think Dodgers fans are pretty happy right now. They were already the better team. Now the Giants's most productive hitter this year is out for the rest of the regular season.

    Smart of teams not to sign him to a LTC. I wouldn't be shocked by an early retirement here, seeing as he was just a utility player before.

    That would explain his ridiculous improvement in the last year or two. Not all that surprising.

    This helps the Pirates as well.

    I am sure he will appeal it. Just get Ryan Braun's lawyer. That guy got Braun completely out of his suspension.

    Nope. This is his statement:
    "My positive test was the result of my use of a substance I should not have used. I accept my suspension under the Joint Drug Program and will try to move on with my life. I am deeply sorry for my mistake and I apologize to my teammates, to the San Francisco Giants organization and to the fans for letting them down."

    Will his stats still count?

    If not then things just keep getting better from Votto's injury. He would now have the second best average in NL if Cabrera's stats are discounted.

    I am sure his stats will stand, but he doesn't have enough at bats to qualify for any leaderboards at the end of the year (he would need 502 and only has 459).

    Thats good. So as long as Joey gets his PA and keeps his current pace he could be up for tops in NL in average.

    At least his cheating won the NL homefield advantage.
