Some Questions About The Melky Cabrera Mess

Complete and utter disappointment. That is what I am feeling right now.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that my favorite Yankee of the mid-to-late 2000s was Melky Cabrera. I had been so proud of him for turning his career around, and I was lobbying the Yankees, in my own little way, to bring him back for the 2013 season. So, the news that came down today about his suspension for PED use hit me pretty hard.

The news also made me wonder about a few things: 

1) Melky Cabrera's off-season workout partner is Alex Rodriguez. We all know A-Rod's history in relation to PEDs. Is there any connection there?

2) What does his close personal friend Robinson Cano think about this turn of events? YES Network reporter Meredith Marakovits tweeted today that Cano learned the news from TV, not from Melky himself. It's been reported over the past few years that the two talk to each other everyday. 

I'm not so sure what the second one means, but the A-Rod info is pretty glaring. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a can of worms.

So my clarion call is no more. But I'll say it one more time, even though I know the answer is "no one:" Bring back the Melkman. Who's with me?

Worried about Cano not playing tonight due to a stiff neck. Sounds like a bogus excuse and I'm more worried about him than A-rod that he may be more involved in Melky's mess.

The stiff neck does sound bogus, but I still think A-Rod raises more eyebrows. I hope neither one of them are involved in it.
