It was sad to hear that All-Star MVP Melky Cabrera will be suspended for 50 games do to a high amount Testosterone.  I was amazed to hear this.  I didn’t see this coming.  It’s very disappointing to see players cheating.  At least he admitted it. “My positive test was the result of my use of a substance I should not have
used,” Cabrera said  “I accept my suspension under the Joint Drug Program and I 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 start to question the raw ability of many players, obviously they are good athletes, but just how good would they do without illegal substances.  This was Melky’s best year of his career and now many people, including myself will no longer be a fan of his and question is he that good of a player?

So, how will this affect the Giants playoff run? I say MAJORLY!  He was batting .346    11 home runs  60 RBI.   This is going to be a giant loss for the Giants.  He is one of their top run producers.  San Francisco is currently 1 game back from first place and .5 games back in the Wild Card.  Melky’s replacement is really going to have to step up.
