Bluejays Blue Jays sign Melky to two-year contract

[QUOTE]The Blue Jays completed a two-year, $16 million contract with free-agent outfielder Melky Cabrera on Monday.

The 28-year-old Cabrera is coming off a controversial season with the Giants. Cabrera was one of the Major Leagues' most proficient hitters until he received a 50-game suspension for using a banned substance on Aug. 15.

"We did a lot of work on him. Obviously, with the suspension, that was something that was very important to look into," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said of Cabrera at a news conference on Tuesday morning at Rogers Centre. "[We] talked to a lot of teams he was on, front office, teammates, staff. Everyone had great things to say about him. Obviously, no one would condone what he did. Those were a lot of the questions I had, but was satisfied with the answers."

Cabrera's suspension came when he was leading the National League in batting with a .346 average. He had 11 homers and 60 RBIs in 113 games while posting a career-high .906 on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS). Cabrera was also named Most Valuable Player of the All-Star Game in Kansas City./QUOTE]

This is just sad. I mean, are the Blue Jays really expecting him to perform like he did in 2010 and 2011?

How do you know he wasn't on Roids? If you ask me, that's the year he started them. In 2009 he sucked, but then all of a sudden he does well in 2010..

How is that the year he started them? He didn't test positive.

It's all a matter of luck. Bonds didn't get caught until a couple years after he did them. Same with the majority of the guys who use them.

When Bonds was at his high point baseballs drug testing was a joke. It's as tight as its ever been now. Players get tested a few times a year now, doing someone is taking something, it doesn't slip through the system. Hence the reason why he got caught. 2010 was a legit year by him.

There are ways to cycle steroids so that when you are tested, it will not show up. You would have to know when you would be tested to make it happen perfectly but I wouldn't doubt tons of pros across all sports get away with it.
