SF Giants Rumors: Melky Cabrera To Watch NLCS On TV

Posted on September 26th, 2012 by admin in SF Giants Rumors

Everyone is talking about the Melky Cabrera situation. Fans are debating whether or not the team should add him to the playoff roster when he’s eligible (6th game of the  playoffs).
 
The San Francisco Giants are going to make an announcement soon on their plans for Cabrera. This is expected to end all of the speculation as to whether Cabrera will be welcomed back to the organization with open arms, or kicked to the curb to watch his team (former team) make a run at the 2012 World Series Championship!

While writing this, CSNBayArea.com is breaking news that the Giants are expected to announce today that Cabrera will not be part of the Giants postseason roster.

I believe the Giants should activate Cabrera when he’s eligible. He was a key factor in the Giants success prior to his suspension. I know they have played better without him, but left field is still a problem for the G-men.

Even if they don’t want to give him the starting job in left field. He still can help them off the bench in a key at bat with runners on base. Now I ask, why wouldn’t you want to bring him back to help you win? He’s served his time for his suspension. He could be a shot in the arm to the team during the National League Championship Series, or at least be a threat off the bench.

Then again, all this speculation could be for not if the Giants can’t get past the National League Division Series (1st round).

  1. Unless there is something going on that wasn’t covered by the suspension, I think he should play. Unless the clubhouse (the guys) are totally against his return, LET HIM PLAY. Fill that serious hole in left field.
    I think that with Melky, the G-Men should be favored in any matchup.
    PLEASE ADD HIM TO THE PLAYOFF ROSTER

  2. Can you imagine a lineup as follows:
    Pagan CF
    Scuturo 2B
    Cabrera LF
    Posey C (MVP)
    Sandoval 3B
    Pence RF
    Belt 1B
    Crawford/Arias SS
    Pitcher

  3. I agree, activate Melky once he is eligible.
    Offensive production from LF has been lacking, and Melky would provide a boost. We should use our best avalable elements to win, not to lose on a matter of principle.

  4. Harvey, that does sound like a good lineup, but remember Melky won’t be on the juice IF he plays in the postseason. So really its just a .260 average hitter who hasnt seen major league pitching in months. No thank you.

  5. I say give him a chance. They don’t have anyone better.

  6. No he left the team without even saying goodbye, and he let all of us down I say just dump him now.

  7. My sense is to let the guys in the club house make the decision by putting it to a vote. In the event the team elects to active him, I would move him down in the line up, possible behind Pence. The top five have been doing pretty well with out him.

    Pagan CF
    Scuturo 2B
    Sandoval 3B
    Posey C (MVP)
    Pence RF
    Cabrera LF
    Belt 1B
    Crawford/Arias SS
    Pitcher

  8. King of Cali asks “Why wouldn’t you bring him back. Hmmmm, let’s see. 1. He cheated, and the Giants are an organization under fire for not being tougher on PED use. 2. He let the team down, by cheating, and could have cost them the season. 3. He made it worse by making up a stupid excuse in a vain attempt to wiggle out of the charge.
    That’s why they shouldn’t bring him back.

  9. I agree with Don Evans. Give him a chance but move him down.
