Suspended juicehead Melky Cabrera reportedly contacted the San Francisco Giants earlier this week to find out if he should travel to the club’s minor league complex to begin preparing for the playoffs in October.
Unfortunately for the 28-year-old Cabrera, San Francisco (82-62), who is 7.5 games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West, is apparently not willing to offer him a spot on the postseason roster.
“Leche,” who has compiled 69 homers, 417 RBI and 995 hits with a .284 batting average since debuting as a professional with the New York Yankees in 2005, was banned on August 15 after testing positive for high levels of testosterone.
Before being caught with dirty piss, Cabrera won the All-Star Game MVP Award, had a major league-leading 159 hits and was second in the National League with a .346 batting average.
The Giants, who acquired Cabrera last November from the Kansas City Royals for left-handed pitcher Jonathan Sánchez and minor league pitcher Ryan Verdugo, have continued to thrive sans their disgraced outfielder and there is no reason to return another cheater to “The Paris of the West.”
San Francisco’s fortunes hinge on their fleet of talented arms and Cabrera would simply serve as a distraction at this point.
Justifiably, the Giants’ suits will never again allow Melky Cabrera to sit in the home dugout at AT&T Park in the South Beach section of San Francisco.by
