Ya know what's great about being a Dodgers fan?
Being able to rain on the parade of a good Giants season.
Today, we get word from Jorge Arangure, a senior Baseball writer for ESPN, that their surprising star of 2012 , Melky Cabrera has been caught using the juice. Via his twitter @jorgearangure. BTW, in case you are in disbelief. SportsCenter also confirmed it on twitter, here.
Considering Melky's stats for this season compared to what he has done historically, I guess we shouldn't be surprised. Look at his career stats below, via Baseball Reference.
As you can see, there was a remarkable jump in stats starting in 2011 while he was with the Kansas City Royals. Then an even bigger jump this season with the Giants. I guess we now know why that was.
Hat Tip: MLB Trade Rumors
UPDATE: Melky has apparently admitted to the mistake, via twitter @MLB. At least he was man enough to own up to his error.
UPDATE II: And this is how I feel.
