Well, if you had any ounce of respect left for Melky Cabrera – you might want to click away from what you’ll be reading below.
Cabrera, who was recently suspended by Major League Baseball for use of performance enhancing drugs attempted to avoid disciplinary action by *wait for it – wait for it* creating a fake website and product to support his claim that he inadvertently took an illegal substance.
I don’t even know what to say.
Per the Daily News:
In a bizarre attempt to avoid a 50-game drug suspension, San Francisco Giants star Melky Cabrera created a fictitious website and a nonexistent product designed to prove he inadvertently took the banned substance that caused a positive test under Major League Baseball’s drug program.
In what’s sure to be an award winning moment at the next Darwin Award’s, Cabrera may have just squeezed out any final support that lingered in the Giant fandom.
It’s also being reported that Juan Nunez, who allegedly paid for the website, is a consultant for Cabrera’s agents Sam and Seth Levinson, so Cabrera and company have all but created baseball’s version of Deepthroat.
No, the other one. The original one. That one is good too though.
All in all – it’s a laughable cap to what was a wonderful, although tainted season for Cabrera who’s MLB career may be in serious jeopardy. If only Melky had learned from the Hebrew Hammer himself to simply leave your package with the Fed-Ex guy overnight in his microwave. Seemed to work wonders for Ryan Braun.
