The news of Melky Cabrera‘s positive PEDs test brought two thoughts to my mind:
1. Cabrera was the MVP of the All-Star Game, won by the National League. As such, a PED user largely determined which team has home field advantage in the World Series. That’s so special.
2. Despite being suspended and very possibly costing the Giants a playoff spot, the Giants still won the Jonathan Sanchez trade.
