Seems a little more reasonable now, right?
This is exactly what I was describing with the Scrabble Cheater this morning. I don’t blame Melky one bit. Dude was on the verge of fading into bolivian. Cashman broke him and his lover Cano up. He was floating around in obscurity. Might as well just roll the dice and see what happens. Hey at the very least you’ll go to your grave an All Star Game MVP. That probably never would have happened. So if he didn’t juice, his Major League career probably winds down to nothing and he returns to somewhere in the Caribbean playing ball in the streets with a milk carton for a glove. Now he’ll probably do the same but at least he had a few moments of glory.
Snake it til you make it/get caught if you would have sucked without snaking it in the first place.
