A week ago I wrote a post suggesting that we probably should have seen Melky Cabrera’s steroid suspension coming. There was a clear spike in his numbers at the beginning of last season. Yesterday Bartolo Colon received the same 50 game suspension from MLB for illegal testosterone use. But in this case, I did see it coming. Coincidently (?) also at the beginning of last season. Here’s my reaction from last May (5/31/11) to Colon’s surprisingly successful return to the majors.
First Melky, then Bartolo, who’s next? Jose Bautista? David Ortiz? Derek Jeter (gasp)? I’m kind of hoping we get more and more of these suspensions as the season unfolds; it’ll be complete chaos.
