2. Too good to be true. Melky Cabrera is suspended 50 games for doping charges. This comes in the middle of a break out who was hitting .347 and will no doubt be a big blow for San Francisco Giant’s Fans and merchandise makers abound.
3. Collapse-a-thon. Catcher Kelly Shoppach, after his trade to the Mets tells the press, “I think — and maybe this is as far as I’ll go with it, too — there is a disconnect in communication between the players through the upper management.” Apparently there is a a disconnect between Carl Crawford and his glove. After Aaron Cook blows a 5 inning no hitter on an error throw-out to Mike Aviles that sails into center field, Cook is removed from the game. Next batter, Carl Crawford watches a 2 run double sail over his head. And of course the press rails on him: “What did it look like? Because I didn’t catch it, I know that,” said Crawford, who didn’t so much as raise his glove. “You can just write whatever y’all want about that. It was just a tough play in my mind. I don’t think I could’ve made that catch, to be honest with you.” No one really is having any fun out there in Boston. What a mess.
