Busted, 50 Games.  Perfect timing while playing against the Nats, out of tonight's lineup.

From the Melkman

"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."

 I don't know if "karmic" is the right word, but it is definitely something else that Melky Cabrera plays left field for the Giants.

Zoinks!

Also, the phrase "tested positive for testosterone" is pretty weird out of context.

I wonder if Royals fans will remove the tar and feathers from Dayton Moore.

Counting, fifty should also mean out of the first five games of the (possible) playoffs too, correct?    :)

Kind of a refreshing response, I guess.

If anyone trashes Cabrera... I hope you hold the same contempt for Morse.

Cabrera was very honest about his positive test and suspension. Morse even more so. Another difference is one is present and one is past.

I just find it ironic to vilify one PED user while blindly cheering another.

You're asking fans to be rational - while the very definition of "fanatic" implies irrational thought.

But that one suits your agenda - and is from a different thread.
