Should Melky get a ring?

Postby Mookie4ever » Tue Oct 30, 2012 9:51 am

Suspended for 50 games on August 15.
At the time of the suspension was hitting .346 with 159 hits, 11 HR, 60 RBI, 84 R and 13 SB
He also was the AS MVP and the win got home field advantage for the Giants (although they would have had it under the old system anyways but would they have had enough wins to get home field advantage without Melky's help?)
At the time of the suspension the Giants were 64-53 tied for first with the Dodgers and after the suspension they went 30-15.
Giants decided not to put him on the post season roster even though he was eligible.

Give him 1/2 a ring :-D . I figure he would have at least put up half the numbers he did, if not more. ;-D

The MLB suspension didn't remove any wins from the Giants record, so give him his ring. ;-D

Of course he deserves a ring. Melky still had to put the time and dedication into his workout/conditioning routine. Its not like you take a pill or get a shot and then BOOM you are Barry Bonds.

Melky got caught. He admitted it and took his suspension like a man. Don't fool yourself into thinking he is the only guy still using PEDs.

Though I wouldn't really call trying to create a fake website to cover himself "taking it like a man".

;-D Plus they have Guillermo Mota who got suspended for the 2nd time and came off a 100 game suspension.

I think it's been confirmed that Mota was suspended because he took some children's cough medicine with a banned substance in it. Don't really think it's the same thing but I do think it'd be ridiculous not to give Melky a ring.

Yep. Rasmus got a ring last year so I think that sets the bar pretty low. :-D
